about

When I visited Berlin for the first time, shortly after the wall collapsed, it was also the first time I fell in love. I remember the no man’s land that was Potsdamer Platz at the time. I held my ruby-redhead girlfriend’s hand while standing still, looking at the buildings on the East side, with their creepy bricked windows facing the West. The german democratic republic was history, and so was the Cold War.

lyrics

I’m twenty again
On a noisy bus
No matter where we are
The breeze, the vane
A Trabant passes by
Naked sign of time

The wind of East Berlin is ruby-red
When lost in your hair

I whisper your name
On the yellow line
We’re leaving hand in hand
A war to blame
No wall to climb
A concrete partner in crime

The lights of West Berlin are ruby-red
When lost in your hair

That was me watching the no man’s land
That was me
This is me changing the life I planned

That was me thinking of where to stand
That was me
This is me walking the no man’s land
