Song title: When I leave Berlin

( Wizz Jones)

When I leave Berlin

When morning comes and I leave Berlin
My mind is turning, my heart is yearning for you and Berlin
In Amsterdam I'll see my lady, I hope she'll love me
'Cause I'm gonna need her when I leave Berlin

Here today, but the wall is open, gone are the soldiers and their guns
Here today, the gates are open, mothers in the arms of their sons

When morning comes and I leave Berlin
I know for certain that I'm a free man when I leave Berlin
In Amsterdam I'll see my lady, I hope she'll love me
'Cause I'm gonna need her when I leave Berlin

Here today, the wall is open, gone are the soldiers and their guns
Here today, the gates are open, mothers in the arms of their sons

When morning comes and I leave Berlin
My mind is turning, my heart is yearning for you and Berlin
In Amsterdam I'll see my lady, I hope she'll love me
'Cause I'm gonna need her when I leave Berlin


When morning comes and I leave Berlin
I know for certain that I'm a free man when I leave Berlin

Notes: 1973 Wizz Jones song Bruce sang for the first time in Berlin in 2012, rendered acoustically to open the night.
These are the lyrics of the Bruce version.
