English Lyrics by Lol Creme
- “Pass the flame”

“Pass the Flame
Unite the World
It’s time to celebrate let our voices be heard
Pass the Flame
Unite the world
Bring us all together
We can grow a forest
On a dried up river bed
We can build a mountain
From a grain sand
Reach out, hold out your hands Reach out, hold out your hands
Pass the Flame
Unite the World
It’s time to celebrate let our voices be heard
Pass the Flame
Unite the world
Bring us all together
Pass the Flame Unite the World (x5)
Reach out, hold out your hands Reach out, hold out your hands
Pass the Flame
Unite the world
Pass the Flame
Unite the World (x5)"…
