Annotationen

Barclay James Harvest hatten den viel grösseren Erfolg auf dem Kontinent als in der britischen Heimat. Dieser Song ist eine Liebeserklärung an Berlin, wo die Band am 30. August 1980 ein Gratiskonzert bei der Mauer spielte. Später als der Erfolg auch in Deutschland und der Schweiz nachliess, hatten sie eine grosse Gefolgschaft im Ostblock.

Lyrics

Came to your border Looking back into the night Falling down on the city lights far away Tell me the answer Who knows the wrong from the right? Years may come and years they go You've seen your bridges burning And the wheels of time keep turning Like a ship in the night You passed along the highways of my life And now my mind you're always in And the ten-thirty flight will soon be headed my way As she sails across the skyway of Berlin Thought I heard your bells cry Bringing the life to your face The time for tears has passed away Can't you see the night is lifting And the sands of time are shifting Like a ship in the night You passed along the highways of my life And now my mind you're always in And the ten-thirty flight will soon be headed my way As she sails across the skyway of Berlin Oh, and to think of all the changes you have seen Oh, and reflect upon the way it might have been Like a ship in the night You passed along the highways of my life And now my mind you're always in And the ten-thirty flight will soon be headed my way As she sails across the skyway of Berlin
