Kent - Berlin Lyrics Translation

(View Original Swedish Lyrics)
Album: Tillbaka Till Samtiden
Lyrics: Joakim Berg
Music: Joakim Berg / Martin Sköld


Sure the night is black, sure the ground is cold
But we freeze together,two skeletons rattling to the same beat
You're standing outside, I'm standing outside
From disappointment and shame slowly came a sense of power

They whisper "you're timeless" when they mean outdated
A nastiness that turns into the greatest compliment
You said you wanted stolen black roses on your grave
A Fleur De Lis in gold on black next to your name

You are life
You are the long miles to Berlin
You are life
You are the long miles to Berlin

They can become something big, they can get the work done
Their task this year is to not give a shit about anything we said
We surrender at last, we abdicate now
And the decay starts just as we turn 37

Darling, I've never been able to teach you anything
At best I can contribute with a feeling
You smell slightly of wet, white roses, old soil
A Fleur De Lis in gold on black next to your name

You are life
You are the long miles to Berlin
You are life
You are a fight in the car to Paris

You are life
You are the long miles to Berlin
In my life
You were a fight in the car from Paris

You are life
Your are the long miles to Berlin
