Oh Berlin, your heart has been drawn and quartered again.
Oh the East and the West were divided by a wall that staunched their freedom.
Well the wall came down in 1989,
But its ghost still refuses to leave
These hauntings are so reputative,
There's a bit of you in me.

Let's go!

Oh Berlin, your life's on fire,
Burns deep within this heart of mine.
You got astronomical , economical, suffering for a century.
And when the ocean swells that day
I'll get on my ship and I'll sail away
On this ship. [Repeat x4]

And when you're all alone, don't forget me.
And when I'm all alone, I won't forget you.
And when you're all alone, don't forget me.
Cause I'm on the wrong side of the tracks.
But I did not know until you turned you're back.
I'm in the blackest years of my life.
But I did not know until you said goodbye.
Goodbye.

Oh Berlin your witness stands here,
On this city shamed kinda day.
I'm going home hey. [Repeat x5]

And when you're all alone, don't forget me.
And when I'm all alone, I won't forget you.
And when you're all alone, don't forget me.
Cause I'm on the wrong side of the tracks.

But I did not know until you turned your back.
I'm in the blackest years of my life.
But I did not know until you said goodbye.
Goodbye!

I'm sorry, Gertie Rouge.
