Goodbye Berlin V3 (Acapella)

by Parralox



Happy New Year!

Goodbye Berlin was originally planned for release in 2019, but then something happened which changed our gameplan (along with the rest of the world!) so of course the best laid plans...

We filmed the music video in Manchester in March 2019, shortly after our live performance at FAC251 (yes, the legendary Factory Records club).
Of course the world changed in literally a week after that.

But the wheels are now turning, and we hope to release Goodbye Berlin very soon indeed.

As our first Bandcamp Subscriber Exclusive download for 2021, we are happy to share the Acapella version with you.

Much love,



Goodbye Berlin
Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
I spent 3 days walking in the rain
You take me into hell
And then back again

Pre Chorus 1
Don't keep me here
I can't bear to stay!
Oh I'll come back again
On another day

Goodbye Berlin
The world is turning
Away from all that we love
You know it like I do, like I do

Verse 2
A darker world
Deeper underground
That only you can find
Only in your mind

Pre Chorus 2
Just for now we should say goodbye
To keep the love alive
Let the Eagle fly

Chorus 2
So Goodbye Berlin
My heart is burning
To run from all that I love
You know that I can't stay or remain

If ever there was a new electronic pop band to encapsulate and emulate the legendary stylings of Depeche Mode, The Human League, Erasure, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and the spirit of Madonna in her 80s day-glo era, then Australia’s Parralox are that modern-day reincarnation. ... more
