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

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 ...

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

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

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.
