songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange / I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range / I used to care, but things have changed / I’ve been walking forty miles of bad road / If the Bible is right, the world will explode / I’ve been trying to get as far away from myself as I can / Some things are too hot to touch / The human mind can only stand so much / You can’t win with a losing hand (Bob Dylan)


cryin’ in a beer is commonplace around here

Cryin’ in a beer is commonplace around here / But when the sun goes down, nobody’s wearing a frown / That’s the life that we live every night / That’s the way that it is, honky tonkers don’t cry (Dale Watson)


never saw my hometown until I stayed away too long

One & a half year of waiting. The old love left just to return one day. While the night was dark. While the night was cold. And that big ol’ moon was shining like a polished dime …

Everything was set for a night full of pleasures & welcome with all kinds of new friends …

Luckily the old friends still around for cigarettes & drinks, telling past & future stories …

All amazed & bathed in that beautiful light you keep spreading & the way you changed …

Ready to fall in love. Ready to roam the streets. Ready to light up these city nights …

Ready to talk things over ’cause you’ve been away too long but this night now is ours …

© C/O Berlin, Berlin, 2014, Florian Fritsch

& it will be a night to remember filled with smiles & tunes, filled with memories & future …

Because you & I were in love with each other & with the city & it’s time to start anew …

I never saw the morning ’til I stayed up all night / I never saw the sunshine ’til you turned out the light / I never saw my hometown until I stayed away too long / I never heard the melody until I needed the song (Tom Waits)

Folks, after more than a year of despair the C/O Berlin finally welcomed us in its new quarter. And though I already knew what I missed the last year it sometimes feels like you are realizing what you got until it’s real, real gone. Luckily times have changed …
