Child sleeping

The Milky Way upon the heavens is twinkling just for you
And Mr. Moon he came by to say goodnight to you
I'll sing for you, I'll sing for mother, we're praying for the world
And for the people everywhere, gonna show them all we care

Oh my sleeping child the world's so wild, but you've build your own paradise
That's one reason why I'll cover you sleeping child

If all the people around the world [they] had a mind like yours
We'd have no fighting and no wars—there would be lasting peace on Earth
If all the kings and all the leaders could see you here this way
They would hold the Earth in their arms [and] they would learn to watch you play

The song is simple. Even the music video (a child is playing as the band sang). But it is with its simple message that chartered the album it belonged to #43 in Sweden.
