BABYLON (LYRICS)
By Sarah Hawker
*Dedicated to all those who die
alone in an unfamiliar land

Oh dear mother, what I'd give
you'll never know
to hear you say baby it's alright
and comfort me while I go

Can you hear me daddy?
Can you find me and carry me home
and lay me out on my dying bed?
I don't want to leave alone

Goodbye, so long
I am leaving Babylon
Goodbye, so long
Close your eyes and I'll be gone

I pray lord you're out there
and I pray my soul you shall keep
for I hear no angels,  I see no wings
and I'm so afraid to sleep

It won't be long now
will it be liquid or glass
that breaks or drowns this poor heart
and washes me away at last?

Goodbye, so long
I am leaving Babylon
Goodbye, so long
Close your eyes and I'll be gone
