C’mon, oh yeah
A city of blinding lights
Right now, at this time in the world
Berlin

The more you know the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now

Neon heart, day glow eyes
City lit by fireflies
They're advertising in the skies
For people like us

And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground
Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Don't look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs, purple irises
The camera can't see

I've seen you walk unafraid
I've seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me

And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground
Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Freulich, c’mon now

Time, time, time, time
Time won't leave me as I am
Time won't take the boy out of this man

Oh, you look so beautiful
Oh, you look so beautiful
Oh, you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for, others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel
Luckily
Blessings
