Dedicated to the spring flowers of Utøya, Norway

Lyrics:

Oh, Mother, let me always choose love.
Oh, Mother, give me strength to choose love.
Through every moment, every hardship, I want to choose love.
Always love.
Love is all.

One summer day in July darkness came to visit.
An angry heart with an angry mind.
Innocent blood under the sun.

Why, oh why, oh why was this allowed?
Why, oh why, oh why was this allowed?

When hate seems like the answer, let me seek grace.
When grandeur seems like the right choice, let me be plain.

Righteous men with high and mighty ideas,
guns in their hands and a frightened child
hidden in the corner of the eye.

Angry hearts block the light, obstruct the view.
Angry hearts turn the world into grey.

Oh, give me, give me courage to choose light.
Even when light seems far away.
Lead me to that place in my heart always unbroken.
Oh, help me find that place unbroken.

Oh, Mother, let me always choose love.
Oh, Mother, give me strength to choose love.
Through every moment, every hardship, I want to choose love.
In honor of the spring flowers never allowed to blossom, let me plant hope.
Let me plant light.
Let me plant love.
Love is all.
