Walls came tumbling down

20 years have passed.

When all the greyness went away.
When we all felt so small and so full of worlds to explore.
When all primary colours, and not just red, became parts of our lives.
When everything we had disappeared in a day.
When the air was filled with expectations.
When our skies became broader.
When a second world was gone forever.

I was just a kid and yet I remember that the historical import was so clear to me.


Sono nata in Bulgaria e sono cresciuta in Italia. Mi occupo di traduzioni e revisioni creative, pignole e attente alla qualit√† per importanti clienti internazionali. Vivo in Olanda con il caro D. Lavoro con l’inglese, l’italiano, occasionalmente con il bulgaro.

  1. Thanks to Paul Weller:

    You don’t have to take this crap
    You don’t have to sit back and relax
    You can actually try changing it
    I know we’ve always been taught to rely
    Upon those in authority –
    But you never know until you try
    How things just might be –
    If we came together so strongly

    Are you gonna try to make this work
    Or spend your days down in the dirt
    You see things can change –
    YES an’ walls can come tumbling down!

    Governments crack and systems fall
    ’cause Unity is powerful –
    Lights go out – walls come tumbling down!

    The competition is a colour TV
    We’re on still pause with the video machine
    That keep you slave to the H.P.

    Until the Unity is threatend by
    Those who have and who have not –
    Those who are with and those who are without
    And dangle jobs like a donkey’s carrot –
    Until you don’t know where you are

    Are you gonna realize
    The class war’s real and not mythologized
    And like Jericho – You see walls can come tumbling down!

    Are you gonna be threatend by
    The public enemies No. 10 –
    Those who play the power game
    They take the profits – you take the blame –
    When they tell you there’s no rise in pay

    Are you gonna try an’ make this work
    Or spend your days down in the dirt –
    You see things CAN change –
    YES an’ walls can come tumbling down!
