Hi hello, wake from thy sleep
God has given your soul to keep
All of the power that burns in the flame
Ignites the light in a single name

Frederick, name of care
Fast asleep in a room somewhere
Guardian angels lay abed, shed their light on my sleepyhead

I'm on a threshold yearning to sing
Done with the dances, having one last fling
Here's to the moment when you said "Hello"
Come in my spirit, are you ready, let's go?

Hi, hi, hey, hey, maybe I will come back someday now
But tonight on the wings of a dove, up above to the land of love

Now I lay me down to sleep, pray the Lord my soul to keep
And kiss to kiss and breath to breath
My soul surrenders, astonished to death
Night of wonder, ours to keep
Set our sails, channel the deep
Capture the rapture, two hearts meet
Combined, entwined in a single beat

Frederick, you're the one, as we journey from sun to sun
All the dreams, I've waited so long
For our flight tonight, so long, so long
Hi, hi, hey, hey, maybe we will come back someday now
But tonight, on the wings of a dove
Up above to the land of love

Frederick, name of care, high above with sky to spare
All the things I've been dreamin' of, all expressed in this game of love
Hi, hi, hey, hey, maybe we will come back someday
But tonight, on the wings of a dove
Up above to the land of love
