"Berlin" as written by Didi Gutman and Sabina Sciubba....
These sore red eyes explore the room again.
The signed pictures of film stars who stayed here in eras
That knew of no wall.
Berlin...Berlin... Berlin...Berlin...

Part of the old world lives
On this island in Germany
And still out there through the window at six in the morning. The essence survives.
Berlin...Berlin... Berlin...Berlin...

Come they told me, down to the dark clubs at night
They'll surprise you , the one's who are asleep when it's light
So outrangeous, like tropical birds in a cage
Out from underneath their stones.

Berlin...Berlin... Berlin...Berlin...
Berlin...Berlin... Berlin...Berlin...
Young faces new ideals, in search of paradise
They merge into the history, the theatre of memories

That make up the feel of
Berlin...Berlin... Berlin...Berlin...

    General CommentRed Skies Over Paradise was one of my favourite albums in 1981! So I`ll try to comment on every song, trying to remember, what it meant for me and means now. Interresting project, i guess...

    OK. Berlin. First song. It`s a hymn to the Western Berlin culture scene then. At this time, 1981, West Berlin really is an "island in Germny", surrounded by the communist GDR with the infamous WALL. An island of western culture, freer than even the western countries themselves. Many artists and free thinking people went to Berlin. West germans fled there from being drafted.Berlin never slept, so at six in the night it was the best time to meet most interresting people. Bowie was in Berlin at that time too.

    So the song is all about the fascination of being in West Berlin in the 80s.
