Do you miss the sea?
Though you've never been there
I imagine you would
You never went anywhere
Still everyone came to you
If you could meet the sea, would you like to, would you like to?

Do you miss the sea?
Though you've never been there
I imagine you would
You never went anywhere
Still everyone came to you
If you could meet the sea, would you like to, would you like to?

Berlin, do you remember when my lover and I
We walked along your river on a cold summer's night
As the sun laid to rest, the drunks came rolling in
And I heard laughter from across the street
And laughter from within

My heart jumped every step we took
My lover wore all white
Berlin, you wore your greenest dress
And we stayed up all night

I whispered to my lover then:
"Oh, how blessed we are to walk here"
And I forgot all sorrows
And he forgot to talk

Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never, never, never

But that was many years ago
Berlin, I went too far
I hear you're growing colder
Well, many of us are

Some of us bury our roots deep
We like our seasons to be four
We don't do well with carefree sunshine
And we are not young anymore

Do you recall the greatest lie you told
You made me feel like I could be
Just anything, just everything
Like you could see things hidden in me

Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never there
Oh no, I was never, never, never

They say that rain is coming in again
I got us tickets to an early flight
I'll show you how to swim
