I am busy writing a new song….and I don’t know where it is going just yet. A song about a city I never visited essentially. Also, I am writing about a city …as it is now as well as a city before WW2.
Here are some of the lyrics
My heart belong to Berlin// to the blinding lights so cold// I never see him in the sunlight, only under bridges where memories are sold
My heart belongs to strangers// who offer prayers at ancient walls// To them his arms are a cathedral, but they weren’t with him when ruin came to call…
I like the sound of this song and the nostalgia I intend to create. Berlin, a place I can’t wait to visit and perform in. Also, I have a picture, one of my favorite of Doug stationed in Berlin during the war. So I am keen to discover how the song will end…It has a very Marlene Dietrich feel to it, does this new song.
