Merzen wir, Berlin, Deutschland
We have our dreams too
Get out of your own way
European dreams, German dreams, Polish dreams
Get out of your own way
Portuguese dreams, a Spanish dream, an Irish dream
Get out of your own way
Europe
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
A U.K. dream
Get out of your own way
 
Love hurts
Now you’re the girl
Who’s left with no words
Your heart’s a balloon
But then it bursts
It doesn’t take a canon, just a pin
Your skin’s no covering

And resistance
Love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies of assistants
The amorous, the glamorous
A kiss, a fist
Listen to this, oh

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

I can sing it to you all night
All night
If I could, I’d make it alright
Alright
Nothing’s stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight

Fight back
Don’t take it lying down
You gotta bite back
The face of liberty’s starting to crack
She had a plan and then she took a smack
In the mouth and it all went south

Like freedom
The slaves are looking for someone to lead ‘em
Master’s looking for someone to need him
The promised land is there for those who need it most
And Lincoln’s ghost said

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

I can sing it to you all night
All night
If I could, I’d make it alright
Alright
Nothing stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight
Your fight

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

C’mon, c’mon

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

Blessed is Berlin
For it rose from the smoke and ashes
Blessed are the Berliners
‘Cause they crept from the ruins and just got on with their day
Blessed are the white taxis
And the women who drive them
Blessed are the weissbier makers
And the weissbier drinkers
Blessed are the bears in the zoo
And the bears in the Bergheim
Blessed is the blue
Above the Europe we share
And may those yellow stars
Never fall upon our heads
