By the waters of Babylon
Were I lay down
I watch this city burn
Burn to the ground (repeat)

And I cried
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, why did this come down?
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, it lasted so long.

By the waters of Babylon
We strolled near by
The sun was soft and warm
And high in the sky (repeat)

And I cried
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
That wasn't that long ago
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, where did the time go?

By the waters of Babylon
We built it high
Like a shining jewel
Against the sky (repeat)

And we cried
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, we wanted to tell
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, we built it so well

By the waters of Babylon
Where I lay down
My children gather near
They gather around (repeat)

They cry
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, what do we do now?
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, where do we go now?

By the waters of Babylon
It flows near by
The orange of the fire
Glows in my eyes (repeat)

I cried
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
Lord, I don't what to die
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord,
I still don't understand why

By the waters of Babylon....
