Berlin Syndrome

Berlin Syndrome

C#7

#streets are crowded

And #crows around

#keep flying over #our heads and bones

#strings get louder

#all sounds surround

#the cocks are crowing #so we go home

 

Refrain:

E7      D#7         D7 C#7

#no, no #we wont go home

E7           F#7       B7   C7   C#7

#no, no, oh #berlin syndrome

 

#skies are cloudy

And #no one looks

The #moon above us #moving in loops

The #cops are prowling

#to hook the crooks

#it’s time to hurry

To #fly the coop

 

-Refrain-

 

F#7               G7  F#7

#berlin so arm und sexy

#berlin da will ich hin

#berlin #so arm und sexy

F#7    E7    D7    C#7

#berlin wir lieben dich

Musical path

Nina sings since her teens and studied classical piano in her hometown, Porto Alegre, and in Strasbourg. She started composing her songs after realizing that there is no universal standard for aesthetic perfection, at least according to Bourdieu and herself. That was 2014. Later she started playing the guitar to accompany her songs.

Don’t expect aesthetic perfection and intricate complexity from her playing and songs, but rather humble and authentic compositions that often make fun of it. By the way, don’t expect too much from anything. The greater the expectations, the highest you fall from (self-) deception. (Graeff 2018)

Amen.
