  • Running to Babylon
    Run all the way to Babylon
    Meet you there in Babylon
    Meet you there in Babylon

    Running to Babylon
    Run all the way to Babylon
    Meet you there in Babylon
    Meet you there in Babylon

    Marooned again, you were the one that threw me into life
    Marooned again, you were the one that looked through the sadder light
    I liked the way we slept on rooftops in the summertime
    If we were all marooned again, I'd give my soul to save you

    Marooned again, you were the one that put me in defense
    Marooned again, you were the one that took my confidence
    I liked the way we slept on rooftops in the summertime
    If we were all marooned again, I'd give my soul to save your life

    Running from Babylon
    Run all the way to Babylon
    Meet you there in Babylon
    Meet you there in Babylon...
