Berlin Lyrics

Bear's Den – Berlin Lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
The cold wind made your cheeks glow
Shivering away under your coat
Berlin was all covered in snow
All I could offer was a hand to hold

So we made our way to the memorial
You traced your hand along the wall
When they put on the video
I felt your hand tighten in mine

[Intro]

[Verse 2]
Oh, to be lost in an Alzheimer fog
Like the grandfather I lost before I lost
Raise the root but spare the tree
And cut you out of my memory

Leave my world just black and white
Snatch the sun out of the sky
For the only colour in my life
Is the memory of you and I

[Verse 3]
Oh, for every crime that I commit
Is there not a punishment to fix?
I'm sorry is an endless corridor
We're behind each ever open door

All my doubts, my fear, my sin
I don't know how to begin
It's a maze within a maze, without, within
My mind, my mind, my labyrinth

[Chorus]
I can't forget you
I try all the time
I can't forget you
Berlin, with your hand in mine

[Intro]

[Verse 4]
So how happy is the blameless vestal's lot?
The world forgetting, by the world forgot
Is it eternal sunshine or endless dark?
Or just a branch left hanging by the bark?

Maybe there are victories and defeats
That slip through the cracks of history
We're just two little people in a scene
That know not everything we meet

[Chorus]
I can't forget you
I try all the time
I can't forget you
Berlin, with your hand in mine

[Verse 5]
The cold wind made your cheeks glow
Shivering away under your coat
Berlin was all covered in snow
All I could offer was a hand to hold

So we made our way to the memorial
You traced your hand along the wall
When they put on the video
I felt your hand tighten in mine
You were always on my mind

[Chrous]
I can't forget you
I try all the time
I can't forget you
Berlin, with your hand in mine
