Written by Les Holroyd who was inspired by the plight of the city of Berlin, which, at the time the song was written, was divided by the infamous Wall separating East and West Berlin. (from www.bjharvest.co.uk)
Came to your border
Looking back into the night
Falling down on the city lights far away
Tell me the answer
Who knows the wrong from the right?
Years may come and years they go
You've seen your bridges burning
And the wheels of time keep turning

Like a ship in the night
You passed along the highways of my life
And now my mind you're always in
And the ten-thirty flight will soon be headed my way
As she sails across the skyway of Berlin

Thought I heard your bells cry
Bringing the life to your face
The time for tears has passed away
Can't you see the night is lifting
And the sands of time are shifting

Like a ship in the night
You passed along the highways of my life
And now my mind you're always in
And the ten-thirty flight will soon be headed my way
As she sails across the skyway of Berlin

Oh, and to think of all the changes you have seen
Oh, and reflect upon the way it might have been

Like a ship in the night
You passed along the highways of my life
And now my mind you're always in
And the ten-thirty flight will soon be headed my way
As she sails across the skyway of Berlin
