Confessions of Berlin

Might have been the funny smoke we had in 54
Or my broken hearted friend that couldn’t care anymore
‘Cause I didn’t know what else to do

We had been up way to many blurry nights in a row
One with the summer sky and its endless flow
Everything was a drunken deja vú

Well, nobody told me everything would be alright
And I fell like a raven shot in the night
Oh, I thought I had come to the end of me

Cars kept passing me by in the dark, hard on the trail
Some stopped, tried to pick me up, as if i was for sale
‘Cause why else would a young girl walk alone, they wondered,
with those shadows in her eyes?

Anything can come, everything has been, boy
I’m just a homeless soul in Berlin, boy
Anything can come and may the walls cave in, boy
I’m just a homeless soul in Berlin, boy

I tried saying: hey, each downfall is good for my art
I was gambling with a city built to break young hearts
But it all got to my head to soon

We had been up way to high before I lost the address
I had sung out my tunes and all I had to confess
Oh, I was talking to the moon

‘Cause nobody told me everything would be alright
And I wondered if they worried about me in the night
It had come down to never looking back

And I knew it was all drama, it was all in my head
So I lied down in the summergrass instead
Oh, I felt like I could fall asleep at last
with those shadows in my eyes

Anything can come, everything has been, boy
I’m just a homeless soul in Berlin, boy
Anything can come and may the walls cave in, boy
I’m just a homeless soul in Berlin, boy

Anything can come, everything has been, boy
I’m just a homeless soul in Berlin, boy
Anything can come, yeah, may the walls cave in, boy
I’m just a homeless soul in Berlin, boy
