There’s only one line that I’ve stumbled over again and again in the past. And one day at a concert, it just happened by itself. It was only two little words that were needed. Since then I’ve been singing: ‘I don’t see the world in ruins yet! – It is in our hands. I believe in us humans and trust that we all know deep in our hearts: We belong together.”
