Marianne Faithfull - In Germany Before The War Lyrics




In Germany before the war
There was a man who owned a store
In nineteen hundred thirty-four
In Dusseldorf
And every night at fine-o-nine
He'd cross the park down to the Rhine
And he'd sit there by the shore

I'm looking at the river
But I'm thinking of the sea
Thinking of the sea
Thinking of the sea
I'm looking at the river
But I'm thinking of the sea

A little girl has lost her way
With hair of gold and eyes of gray
Reflected in his glasses
As he watches her
A little girl has lost her way
With hair of gold and eyes of gray

I'm looking at the river
But I'm thinking of the sea
Thinking of the sea
Thinking of the sea

We lie beneath the autumn sky
My little golden girl and I
And she lies very still

    In Germany Before The War
    There was a man who owned a store
    In nineteen hundred thirty four
    In Dusseldorf
    And every day at fine o nine
    He'd cross the park down to the Rhine
    And he'd sit there by the shore

    I'm looking at the river
    But I'm thinking of the sea
    I'm looking at the river
    But I'm thinking of the sea

    A little girl has lost her way
    With hair of gold and eyes of gray
    Reflected in his glasses
    As he watches her
    A little girl has lost her way

    I'm looking at the river
    But I'm thinking of the sea
    Thinking of the sea
    Thinking of the sea

    We lie beneath the autumn sky
    My little golden girl and I
    And she lies very still
