"Wind Of Change" as written by and Peter Kenneth Frampton....
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future's in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night (the glory night)
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change (the wind of change)

The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
With you and me (with you and me)
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change (in the wind of change)

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me too, I'm from West Berlin. I was 19 when the Brandenburg Gate was opened in November 1989 and we all ran through the cordon of soldiers and stepped on East German soil for the first time in our lives. Our whole lives before that had been lived under the spectre of nuclear war. The start of the 1990s with the reunification of our country, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Wall, the freeing of the Warsaw Pact countries, was so full of hope and possibilities. I remember thinking that this was the year my life REALLY began. I still cry when I hear this song.

    General CommentThis song is about everything that was happening in the world then. everything from the end of WWII,through the cold war, the spring of 1968 revolutions, the USSR war in Afghanistan, the Kosovo and Bosnia conflicts, the fall of communism, and the fall of the berlin wall, and the US on the brink of war in the gulf war. the world had gone through hell for almost 50 years, and it seemed like it may finally be over, and the song is about listening to the winds of change, and hoping that they are a good one. sadly, we know now that more wars, and massacre was to follow.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about the destruction of the Berlin Wall, and it's a fuckin awesome song.

    General CommentWhat a great song...what's sad is that friends of mine who are freshmen in college have never heard this song, or if they have, are clueless as to what it means. I was young when the Berlin Wall came down, but I remember it vaguely...I have more of an association of it coming down to this song than to memory. What a great song...:)

    General CommentThis seriously is one of the greatest songs ever made. And the first time it really hit home for me was when a bunch of my mates from Romania performed it acoustically. Incredible.

    General CommentI may not have been around for the fall of the berlin wall (i was born in late '85) but i'm at a turning point in my life, leaving home for college in a year. So this song really means a lot to me, maybe in a different way than it does to some of you guys, but it's still amazing.
