Frasi Jacques Brel

„We can heal all our wounds
We can use our own names.“

— Jacques Brel
Context: If we only have love We can reach those in pain We can heal all our wounds We can use our own names.

„If we only have love
We will never bow down“

— Jacques Brel
Context: If we only have love We will never bow down We'll be tall as the pines Neither heroes nor clowns. If we only have love Then we'll only be men And we'll drink from the Grail To be born once again; Then with nothing at all But the little we are We'll have conquered all time All space, the sun, and the stars!
