about

Georg Berlin, Germany

Georg never travels without a guitar. So whereever he goes his songs will follow. But the while his style is like rock-on-the-road quieter moments allow some rest along the way.

Track Name: Lightning & thunder
I can hear a distant cry
Will someone tell me why
First lightning then thunder
First lightning then thunder

What’s the voice that got me here
Where’s the voice that'll get you there
Still my hope’s in a wonder
Still my hope’s in a wonder

You’ve set my feet on a wide land
I’m protected by your hand
Liberate the prisoners
Liberate the prisoners
Track Name: Rose on the beach
CHORUS
I've seen a rose on the beach
Red rose on the beach
And somewhere a love has grown cold

Beautiful flower lying there in the evening sun – abandoned
Where the waves hit the shore
Red petals and the green leaves below
Touched by the wind
The mighty water flows by

CHORUS
...

Purple sky and the seagulls that cry
God's creation no one can deny
I gaze up and the sun has set behind the church tower
And still there lies my lonesome flower

The sun has set behind the church tower
And still there lies my lonesome flower

CHORUS
...
Track Name: Train downtown
Ballerina, señorita, in the hallway,
Leaning against the wall
Restless lady, lonely skies, sad sad eyes
Are peering through the rain
(she asks me)

CHORUS
When is the train going downtown?
When is the train going down?
When is the train rolling downtown?
When is the train going down?

Life’s broken promise, disillusion, mad confusion,
Let me comfort you my dear
When will we get there to the blissful city?
Lord have pity
Is our hope all in vain?

CHORUS
When is the train going downtown?
...

Night has fallen, let me guide you outside
Feel the fresh breeze; we’ll follow the morning dawn
Take the thorny path to the moonshine mountain
Uncover your eyes, you’ll be surprised by the view you’ll get

CHORUS
Still the trains are running downtown
...

(Solo)

CHORUS
Ooohh, light’s flickering uptown
Yeah, light’s flickering uptown
Ooohh, light’s flickering uptown
Yeah, light’s flickering uptown
Track Name: Timmy disappears
Timmy gazed out on the street
She had to disappear
She was looking for a special love
She couldn’t find anywhere near

For the first time in her life she understood
What hopelessness means
In yonder man’s burning eyes
No room for dreams

Timmy stood out there on the road
Wind had cast away her fear
She gazed onto the horizon
Relief was somewhat near
