lyrics

The divide, falling down,
reunites a whole town
They made love
in the streets
Berlin Wall beneath their feet
Twenty-five years ago
I wasn't born, but I am told
My father saw
on the news they report
As a boy, with wide eyes,
he saw the world surprised
At the end of the war,
the cold war
We were appalled
to find our race,
human race, inanimate
Some were made of more heart
than their brawn,
still they were strong
A dictator shares
his ruthless might
Some break down,
are crushed in the fight
Grandfather worked in factories
With both hands near machinery
Always close to fire, his desire
Raise a family, see it gardened,
and well fed
Times are changing
but I remain the same
I'm always changing
The world stays the same
