  • Lyrics
  • A stone's throw from Jerusalem
    I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
    And through a million stars were shining
    My heart was lost on a distant planet
    That whirls around the April moon
    Whirling in an arc of sadness
    I'm lost without you I'm lost without you
    Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
    And fall into the sea
    I'm mad about you I'm mad about you

    And from the dark secluded valleys
    I heard the ancient songs of sadness
    But every step I thought of you
    Every footstep only you
    And every star a grain of sand
    The leavings of a dried up ocean
    Tell me, how much longer? How much longer?

    They say a city in the desert lies
    The vanity of an ancient king
    But the city lies in broken pieces
    Where the wind howls and the vultures sing
    These are the works of man
    This is the sum of our ambition
    It would make a prison of my life
    If you became another's wife
    With every prison blown to dust
    My enemies walk free
    I'm mad about you I'm mad about you

    And I have never in my life
    Felt more alone than I do now
    Although I claim dominions over all I see
    It means nothing to me
    There are no vitories
    In all our histories, without love

    A stone's throw from Jerusalem
    I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
    And through a million stars were shining
    My heart was lost on a distant planet
    That whirls around the April moon
    Whirling in an arc of sadness
    I'm lost without you I'm lost without you
    And though you hold the keys to ruin
    Of everything I see
    With every prison blown to dust,
    My enemies walk free
    Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
    And fall into the sea
    I'm mad about you I'm mad about youWriter/s: DON EDWARD FAGENSON, PAUL REISER
