Here by my window in Germany 
A morning bird flies close to me 
On his wing I see a yellow star 
The lights are on in the factory 
The frost is hung on the linden tree 
And I remember where we are 
And I remember the holocaust 
I remember all we lost 
The families torn and the borders crossed 
And I sing of it now for Sasha 
A young German officer lies in his bed 
Bandages from toe to head 
A prisoner of the camps draws nigh 
If you are Abel and I am Cain 
Forgive me from my bed of pain 
I know not why we die 
It was I who ordered the building burned 
The job was over and as I turned 
A father and his son 
Caught in the flames high above the ground 
From cradled arms the boy looked down 

One leap and their lives were done 
And I remember the holocaust 
I remember all we lost 
The children gone and the borders crossed 
And I sing of it now for Sasha 
You in frozen streets of Heidelberg 
Your youth unbearded takes form in words 
And the ghosts of the past are kind 
For this was your university 
The years were long but the spirits free 
And your river runs to the Rhine 
The smoke filled taverns that you once roamed 
With the discontented who'd stayed at home 
You must have whiskey or you'll die 
The beer garden under the old chateau 
Our faces now in the candle glow 
See the memories how they shine 
But you remember the holocaust 
You remember all we lost 
The families torn and the borders crossed 
And we'll sing of it now for Sasha
