"A Shout In the Dark" as written by and Hay/kooymans....
It's rainin' on a summer night
I'm gonna take a ride on a dreamboat
Don't know 'bout it's destination
Higher than the clouds and the angels

Further than a million roads forever away
From the death-patrol
'Cause when I close my eyes, I dream of freedom
And when I open 'em, I see a multitude of good reasons

To get the hell out a here
Tonight I'm breaking out
Tonight I made a vow
That any minute now

I'm gonna climb the wall of freedom on my own
Yeah, tonight I'm full of doubt
Tonight there's no more doubt
That any second now

I'm gonna face a life of treason on my own
I hear a shout in the dark
A scream in the alley
It seems like the devil runs this whole city

I hear a shout in the dark
A scream in the alley
It seems like the devil shows me no pity
I'm going home

Tried it all day, lord
Time for me to kick off my working shoes
There's nothin' left to lose
Behind the tired buildings

Places that are haunting me, lie lingering
Beyond the Berlin Wall
I hear it whisper, I can hear it call
At night the sky for my hungry eye, hides a rainbow

Behind the concrete door
Tonight I'm breaking out
Tonight I made a vow
That any minute now

I'm gonna climb the wall of freedom on my own
Yeah, tonight I'm full of doubt
Tonight there's no more doubt
That any second now

I'm gonna face a life of treason on my own
I hear a shout in the dark
A scream in the alley
It seems like the devil runs this whole city

I hear a shout in the dark
A scream in the alley
It seems like the devil shows me no pity
I'm going home
