Lyrics

Babies In Babylon M.Worthy

We walked these streets
We owned the night
At least we acted that way
We sparked the gap
Strolled the avenues
With a pirates swagger and sway

Babies In Babylon
Too precious to be true
Babies in Babylon, in Babylon
That was me and you
That was ... me and you

The tavern lights burned bright, safe harbour
We moored our Huckleberry raft
Heaven was a chorus of "Good Night Irene"
And another tray of draft

Babies in Babylon
Too perfect to survive
Babies in Babylon, in Babylon
That was you and I
That was... you and I

Hold on, hold fast the water's risin'
The storm will rage and thrash
When the fire fades
All that remains
Are the ghosts of memory
Innocence's ashes

Babies in Babylon
Just laughin' at the moon
Babies in Babylon, in Babylon
Over all too soon
It was over all too soon

Babies in Babylon
Was ever so, was always thus, always thus
Babies in Babylon, in Babylon
That was all of us
That was... all of us
Was all of us
That was all of us
All of us
