Head and shoulders above all the rest, you climb to the top of the list. My love, the strain on my shoulders reminds me of the night when I first gazed up a face that makes eyes swell. With tears that just won't quell this riotous beat of a heart that can only feed on the darkness of a hell below us. Overwrought tearing apart our every thought of hope to save one soul a hope to make me whole again. Down from a hundred to one. Count: down from a hundred to one. Lord, pray that you bring us a sun tomorrow. Out of a wedlock cosmo torn, a place where healing starts, holding a Berlin heart. Are you fading? Don't stop waiting. Donors of excitement in this Berlin heart. Fight our way to the top of the list without anything but a fistful of a glory that can only come form a power that gives and takes us all. Don't come for me I'll come to you. Don't come for me. I'm counting. Down from a hundred to one. Count: down from a hundred to one. Count: down from a hundred to one. Count: down form a hundred to one.

    General CommentGreat song. Just an unaffected love song about the struggle of a person being torn apart by crushing hopelessness of the world, and how their special person saves them from this.

    General CommentAlso, the reason he calls it a "Berlin heart"? Because Berlin was divided into several parts (I think five seperate sections) after World War 2, and became a very different city depending which one you were in. The Berlin wall then divided east from west Germany.

    He's saying his heart is constrained, sectioned off, suffering the pain of seperation from his loved one.
