about

Written, of course, upon my return to the USA. The coda at the end was written and recorded during my previous trip to Germany, in which I spent a summer working in southern Germany. You can hear the birds chirping through the open window.

lyrics

After a year of living the dream
It's become hard to recollect it all
All the pictures and the memories
They're all that I have to show for it now
After the dream is over and done
How should it feel when it's all in the past
It all seems distant and so impossible
Now I wonder if it really happened

I ran to Berlin whenever I felt lonely
Meet some friends then head to Tacheles
Or I'd find myself at the steps of the Kölner Dom
Cross the bridge or go walk along the Rhein
Spent the weekends always on a train
Chasing Bauhaus or World Heritage Sites
The mines of Rammelsberg, the Gardens of Wörlitz
The old town of Lübeck, the palace of Würzburg
Museums and churches, the Christmas markets

And at the end, it came in a rush
It must have been some kind of strange dream
Readjustment is no easy task
Should I go back and relive the dream
