Lyrics (translated)

Oh Loveland


On a dazzling summer afternoon
Everyone ran for shelter in the shade of the trees
Beyond the burning cobblestones
From the shimmering running water
In the fiery steps
And the one who emerged…


Oh Loveland


Sweat dripping down my cheeks
Falling on the dry road
Suddenly this desert town
Turns into an oasis in the south


Oh, Loveland


It must be her fault
Turn your eyes to me


Oh Loveland Oh lsland
I love you I love you
Oh Loveland Oh lsland
I love you


As if following a dream
I found myself
Hmm…


Oh Loveland


The one who suddenly appeared and disappeared
Must be the goddess of summer
That the love of the light is here too


Oh Loveland


I’m here to tell you


Oh Loveland Oh lsland
I love you I love you
Oh Loveland Oh lsland
I love you…
