Without fear

How do you do, when you're a kid
To have courage and faith in destiny
If dad locks you in the dark as punishment
Then at bedtime: "Quiet or the wolf comes
Quiet or the wolf comes, quiet or the wolf comes"
Then mom says: "I'll call the boogeyman
I'll call the Babau, he's gonna eat you whole
In the dark night, he's going to sting you
He's going to sting you, he's going to sting you
 
But you go through dark, without fear
But you go through dark, without fear
But you go through dark, without fear
 
Then all of a sudden you come to an age
When you're madly in love with the wrong man
There's no escape, not here nor there
Your father will yell, your mother will pray
Your mother will pray, your mother will pray
Then the lover jumps off a building
Because what is easy then becomes hard
Because life is hard, life is hard
Life is hard
 
But you go through love, without fear
But you go through love, without fear
But you go through love, without fear
 
Danger exists, it's part of the game
Don't bother about it, or you won't live long
Keep strong, start again
Start again, start again
Even on the road you're in danger
You're distracted, lost in thought
The garbage truck is coming
And the driver increases the pace
Increases the pace, increases the pace
 
But you go through your road, without fear
But you go through your road, without fear
But you go through your road, without fear
 
Then a nice day of any week
Then a nice day of any week
Someone knocks at the door, someone knocks at the door
It's a telegram, she's calling for you
It's a telegram, she's calling for you
For someone it comes soon, for others late
But sooner or later, calm and confident
She comes without notice, she comes and takes you
She comes and takes you, she comes and takes you
 
But you go through death, without fear
But you go through dark, without fear
But you go through love, without fear
But you go through your road, without fear
But you go through death, without fear
 
Thanks!
