(Latimer/Hoover)
They woke you in the night
a glare from bright headlights.
Sentry's in a row,
you watched them from a front window.
Through sleepy eyes you saw the scene,
and felt
as if a dream...
had come to life.

Caught by surprise
protection in disguise.
A high barricade,
the price too high to pay.
The late-night dancers filled the street,
and stopped
as if a dream...
had come to life

A wail and a cry,
blue lights flashing by
In shadows of the trees,
a zone runs in between.
The young-boy soldiers filled the streets
and moved
as if a dream...
had come to life.

Can it be a nightmare?
Will you wake and still be there?
So you try to run,
frightened you're the one
left inside.

    Song MeaningMy teacher showed me this song during the Cold War segment of class.

    It's about the construction and oppression of the Berlin Wall.
