Lyrics for Wind Of Change by Scorpions:

Intro
(Whistling)

Verse 1
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change
(Whistling)

Verse 2
The world is closing in
And did you ever think?
That we could be so close?
Like brothers
The future's in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Chorus
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change
(mmmmmmm)

Verse 3
Walking down the street
And distant memories
Are buried in the past forever
I follow the Moskva
And down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Chorus
Take me (take me) to the magic of the moment
On a glory night (glory night)
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
With you and me (you and me)
Take me (take me) to the magic of the moment
On a glory night (a glory night)
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change (wind of change)

Bridge
The wind of change blows straight
Into the face of time
Like a storm wind that will ring
The freedom bell for peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to sing (sing)

Guitar solo

Chorus
Take me (take me) to the magic of the moment
On a glory night (a glory night)
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
With you and me (you and me)
Take me (take me) to the magic of the moment
On a glory night (a glory night)
Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
In the wind of change (wind of change)

Outro
(Whistling)

Song Facts

The 4th track and 3rd single of Scorpions‘ 1990 album Crazy World. Written by vocalist Klaus Meine, “Wind of Change” is a power ballad about the various social and political changes that were happening in Eastern Europe at the time, especially in Moscow, Russia where the band got their inspiration to write the song after performing in a large festival there for the first time and noticed just how big they were there. It was eventually used as the anthem for hope after the fall of the Soviet Communist regime, the Berlin Wall, and by extension the end of the Cold War.

“Wind of Change” ended up as one of the biggest-selling singles of all time, selling over 14 million copies while also becoming the best-selling single from a German artist. A gold record of the single was presented in 1991 to Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union.
