Babaji

Album: Even In The Quietest Moments (1977)
  • All of my life I felt that you were listening
    Watching for ways to help me stay in tune
    Lord of my dreams, although confusion
    Keeps trying to deceive
    What is it that makes me believe in you?

    Babaji, oh won't you come to me
    Won't you help me face the music
    Bring it out so we can sing it out
    Help me to find it before we lose it

    At night when the stars are near
    And there's no one to keep you from coming here
    And there's no one to shield me before your eyes
    Is it mine, is it mine, is it mine to know?

    I can see it's not too good to me
    To be afloat in the sea of glory
    Babaji, oh how you comfort me
    By showing me it's a different story

    Your light in the dark is real
    And I know that you know it is how I feel
    When I see the reflections that's in your eyes
    Is it mine, is it mine, is it mine to know?

    Babaji, have you a song for me
    To tell the world of its guardian angel
    Bring it out so we can sing it out
    Oh must you always remain a stranger?

    At night when the stars are near
    And I long for delusion to disappear
    The I see the reflection that's in your eyes
    Is it time, is it time, is it time to know Writer/s: Richard Davies, Roger Hodgson

  • Peter Auwerda from ArubaWhen I asked Roger Hodgson during his meet&greet on February 26, 2020 in The Villages FL, he confirmed to me that Autobiography of A Yogi was the inspiration for his song Babaji, thereby answering my 29 year old question when I as a Supertramp fan had read this book and was one day listening to Even In The Quietest Moments. I wish that Roger had read The Holy Science by Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri, who together with Paramahansa Yogananda, Lahiri Mahasaya and Mahavatar Babaji are all on the famous Beatles' album cover Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Imagine, why would the Beatles put 4 guru's of the same linneage on their cover, and not the guru's of 4 different traditions?
  • Jeffrey from Rosemead, CaThis unassuming song is as super as one can experience! I treasure it along with "Jesus" by Cat Stevens and "Jeruselem" by ELP.
