Berlin – The World Is Waiting lyrics

She never sleeps, never laughs, never feels the sun
And when you ask her how she is
Tired and broken

She works alone, eats alone, drinks alone at night
She has a family far away
And she doesn't know them

And every day goes by like a silent dream
Behind the same four walls closing off her screams
Captured, inside a trance

And once upon a time she had hopes of her own
But as the tears go by she sinks like a stone
Is there someone somewhere who cares

One day she woke up to a life
Without anyone to hold at night
She looked up to the sky

The world is waiting
Take what you want
Release yourself from the past

The world is waiting
Step through the door
Finding a way at last oh-oh

He never cries, never talks of the youth he's lost
And when you ask him what he needs
It's just dignity

Cause every day he's pulled like a man on a string
9 to 9 he's working down on his knees
To feed the children he never sees

One day he turned out the light
Without anyone to hold at night
Then he opened up his eyes

The world is waiting
Take what you want
Release yourself from the past

The world is waiting
Step through the door
Finding a way at last oh-oh

Don't look back
There's just one track
The weight on your shoulders
Is only in your mind
The future's here
Leave the rest behind...
