lyrics

Forty years of winter, we never saw the sun
We never smiled at strangers, or talked to anyone
For there were walls between us, so no one came too near
And who knows who'd have seen us, we never lost that fear
We bowed our heads in silence, we all lived by their law
They ruled us with their violence, and the knock upon the door
We clung to hope with sorrow, tried not to hear the screams
Tomorrow and tomorrow, but still we had our dreams

Of spring again, the first we'd see
Of spring again, when we'd be free
The tales we'd tell of how we'd stand
As tyrants fell, across our land
Let Spring return once more to Prague
Take down the wall, disarm the guard
It's time to sing our long lost song
They said was dead, they said was wrong
Let Spring return, let playwrights rule
Let poets rhyme the sins of fools
Let Spring begin in Bucharest
And in Berlin, let Spring begin


Then we heard the whispers, they echoed on the wind
We stood in darkened corners where the posters had been pinned
Someone said "Together" someone said "We may"
Someone said "No, never" then someone said "Today"
So suddenly it happened, we never stopped to think
We filled the square with people before the guards could blink
They lost their day forever when they washed the stones with blood
The people were a river, then the river was a flood

It's Spring again, the first we'll see
It's Spring again, and we are free
The Summer calls, but we must stand
As tyrants fall, across our land
Let Spring return once more to Prague
Take down the wall, disarm the guard
It's time to sing our long lost song
They said was dead, they said was wrong
It's Spring again, the playwright rules
The poet rhymes the sins of fools
Let Spring begin in Bucharest
And in Berlin, let Spring begin
