A great day for freedom

On the day the wall came down, they threw the locks on to the ground

And with glasses high we raised a cry for freedom had arrived
And on the day the wall came down
The ship of fools had finally run aground.
Promises lit up the night like paper doves in flight.

I dreamed you had left my side. No warmth not even pride remained--

And even though you needed me, it was clear that I could not

do a thing for you.
Now life devalues day by day
As friends and neighbours turn away.
And there's a change that even with regret can not be undone.
Now frontiers shift like desert sands,
as nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey.
I woke to the sound of drums.
The music played, the morning sun streamed in.
I turned and I looked at you,
and all but the bitter residue slipped away,
