Lyrics

Wishing I Was Germany

Copyright 2004
Dan Pelletier

They tell me you’re in Germany, lucky fucking Germany,
They tell me you will be there ‘til the spring
I’ve always loved my country, but right now I can’t really see
Over Germany, how it’s got anything

I wish that I was Dusseldorf, I wish that I was Bonn
I wish that I was anywhere that you may have gone
I wish that I was Regensburg, far across the sea
Cause tonight I’m New York City, wishing I was Germany

You know never I brought you flowers, stupid, stupid flowers
I thought that they could make it right and fine
But Heidelberg has flowers and Munich, flowers of flowers
I somehow think more beautiful than mine

I wish I’d met you that I might meet you yet
And do the things I should have done, say what I should have said
Wish I was on the Bergenstrasse and you bumped into me
Cause tonight I’m New York City, wishing I was Germany

You know I lit the candle, lit the silver candle
I still can see your face there in it’s light
I watched the wax drip slowly and as the flame flickered and faltered
I could swear I heard your voice call in the night

That’s why I wish that I was Dusseldorf, I wish that I was Bonn
I wish that I was anywhere that you may have gone
I wish that I was Regensburg, far across the sea
Cause tonight I’m New York City, wishing I was Germany
Tonight I’m New York City, tonight I’m New York City,
tonight I’m New York City, wishing I was Germany

Alternate:
Oceans, borders, timezones can’t change a thing somehow
There’s a bierhaus out in Liepzig where you are playing now
If just before the soundcheck, you listen quiet and still
My heart beats right there with you and it always will
