If only a rainbow would come down to us from a cloud
If only there was a repair for this world
If only our gift would not be lost forever
If only the desert would grow grass, a lawn
If only we could still sit in the shade of the fig tree
If only we could not hurt
And each would love his brother
If only they'd reopen the gates of Eden
If only East and West would merge
If only our days here would be renewed as of old
If only one nation wouldn't lift its sword against another
If only we wouldn't abandon the path of hope
If only man could be merciful till evening
If only we had a single possibility of love.
