The cold wind made your cheeks glow
Shivering away under your coat
Berlin was all covered in snow
All I could offer was a hand to hold
So we made our way to the memorial
You traced your hand along the wall
When they put on the video
I felt your hand tighten in mine

Oh, to be lost in an Alzheimer fog
Like the grandfather I lost before I lost
To raise the root but spare the tree
And cut you out of my memory
Leave my world just black and white
Snatch the sun out of the sky
For the only colour in my life
Is the memory of you and I

Oh, for every crime that I commit
Is there not a punishment that fits?
I'm sorry is an endless corridor
Where behind each ever open door
Are my doubts, my fear, my sin
I don't know how to begin
It's a maze within a maze without within
My mind, my mind, my labyrinth

I can't forget you
I try all the time
I can't forget you
Berlin, with your hand in mine

So happy is the blameless vestals like
The world forgetting why the world forgot
Is it eternal sunshine or endless dark?
Or just a branch left hanging by the bark?
Maybe there are victories and defeats
That slip through the cracks of history
We're just two little people in the sea
But know that it meant everything to me

I can't forget you
I try all the time
I can't forget you
Berlin, with your hand in mine

The cold wind made your cheeks glow
Shivering away under your coat
Berlin was all covered in snow
All I could offer was a hand to hold
So we made our way to the memorial
You traced your hand along the wall
When they put on the video
I felt your hand tighten in mine
You were always on my mind

I can't forget you
I try all the time
I can't forget you
Berlin, with your hand in mine
