Somewhere in Babylon

Somewhere in Babylon

Life is only as good
as those who live it
Love is only as good
as those who give it
The world is only as good
as those who change it
An idea is only good
if you exchange it

They say we lost
each other there
in Babylon...
And the promises
of tomorrow
have all been withdrawn.
But perhaps we'll
meet again,
somewhere in paradise
And I'll see you
in the morning
at the sunrise.

This world seems
so much emptier
without you.
And perhaps there
is a heaven,
I hope it's true...
Because I'll miss
all the conversations
that we never had
And to think that
your gone forever
would simply drive
me mad...

Perhaps we never
really knew
each other...
But I never
would have traded
you for another.
And though I
know theres
no rest for me,
I must move on.
Perhaps we'll
find each other
there in Babylon.


Life is only as good

Love is only as good

as those who change it.

if you exchange it...

I suppose I always
thought there would
be tomorrow...
or perhaps there
would be more time
that we could borrow.
But it all seems so
much grayer here
without you...
and it's hard to
close the book,
although the stories
through.

It seems that time
was wasted,
by simply wasting
time
And though the clock
was ticking,
we never heard it
chime...
But every now and then
I sit and think of you...
and how if you were here
the things I'd say
to you...

Life is only as good
as those who live it.
Love is only as good
as those who give it.
The world is only as good
as those who change it.
An idea is only good
if you exchange it...

The world is getting
colder, and I must
move on...
I look to my side,
and I find your gone...
But that light way up
ahead there surely
must be dawn...
and perhaps we'll
meet again
somewhere in Babylon...
