Alphaville – Ivory Tower lyrics

Here is the news from my little hideaway
My sweet Ivory Tower
I've sent you songs about so many thing
Mighty moondogs skipping waves
Dolphins playing their lives away
Golden circus girls and pharaohs
Fallen angels, streetside Romeos
Patricia's park and Anyway
Eternal youth and neverending summer days
Lonely girls, music halls, the mysteries of love
In the event that I don't return
Please take this message to understand...
In the event...
I am a stranger in a strange land
Welcome, stranger, to the land of the free
Welcome, Carol, to Phantasy
Oh my God, I feel so alone
A million lightyears far from home
It seems to be a tragedy
How can I live in Germany?
Another house is burning down
It's time to face the cruel reality
This is a game no more
Disasters in the 20th Century
In the event that I don't return
Please take this message to understand
In the event that I don't return...
