I saw it in a photo
It said all I need to know
It's an image that has followed me
Wherever I may go
When I stare into your eyes
I can only guess at where you've been
Looking at the skyline of Berlin

The buildings are all shattered
As in a silent roar
The streets are all just rubble
The year is 1944
I guess I just don't understand
This world we live in
As I'm looking at the skyline of Berlin

When I look into your face
I can hear the dying cries
And the sadness of the world
Reflected in your deep blue eyes
The picture of a city
Flattened like a tin
Looking at the skyline of Berlin

You can talk about the blitz
And all those good people gone
You can claim you were fighting evil
You can ask which side I'm on
But all I see is horror
A war only death would win
When I'm looking at the skyline of Berlin
