We are walkin’ together
We are wonderin’ on and on.

We will follow towards the light of our song!

We are wanderin’ together,
What is goin’ on,
Whether others will follow us
Walking towards the light of our song!

Just follow me!
Walk with us through our wandering tune.
Just follow me!
Walk with us to our wonderful truth.
