Lyrics

Die ganze Welt braucht Liebe
Wer ist schon gern allein?
Ein kleines bißchen Liebe
Soll's bei mir anders sein?

Im großen Weltgetriebe
Hat selbst der kleinste Stein
Ein kleines zweites Steinchen
Soll's bei mir anders sein?
Nein

Auch mein Herz hat Sehnsucht
Und braucht ein zweites Herz
Das mich zu versteh'n sucht
In Freuden, doch auch im Schmerz

Die Welt wär' kalt und trübe
Küßt' sie kein Sonnenschein
Und jedes Herz braucht Liebe
Soll's bei mir anders sein?
Nein, 's kann gar nicht anders sein

Die Wange will umschmeichelt sein
Der Mund braucht Zärtlichkeit
Die Hand, sie will gestreichelt sein
So ist es heut' und alle Zeit:
Die ganze Welt braucht Liebe

Auch mein Herz hat Sehnsucht
Und braucht ein zweites Herz
Das mich zu versteh'n sucht
In Freuden, doch auch im Schmerz

Die Welt wär' kalt und trübe
Küßt' sie kein Sonnenschein
Und jedes Herz braucht Liebe
Soll's bei mir anders sein?
Nein, 's kann gar nicht anders sein

The whole world needs love
Who likes to be alone?
A little bit of love
Should it be different with me?

In the big gear of the world
Even the smallest stone has
Another little stone
Should it be different with me?
No

My heart too has longing
And it needs a second heart
That tries to understand me
In happy days, but also in bad days

And if the world were cold and gloomy
Then it wouldn't be kissed by sunshine
And every heart needs love
Should it be different with me?
No, it can't be different

The cheek wants to be touched softly
The mouth needs tenderness
The hand, it wants to be caressed
That's how it is today and for all times
The whole world needs love

My heart too has longing
And it needs a second heart
That tries to understand me
In happy days, but also in bad days

And if the world were cold and gloomy
Then it wouldn't be kissed by sunshine
And every heart needs love
Should it be different with me?
No, it can't be different
