Story

The 1st. track from my debut solo CD "All Things Considered." It's a litany of stuff, which I first wrote over 10 years ago when I lived in a little cold-water flat by the beach.

Lyrics

How many dreams that never come true

How many reasons you can see right through

How many more times till we get it on

How many miles to Babylon

How many stages where the scenery falls

How many dark and disturbing phone calls

How many slips of your stupid tongue

How many miles to Babylon

Something in my eyes lets you see what I have done

Don’t you realise that you’re coming with me-To Babylon

How many pieces can shatter & break

Before you understand just what it takes

How many times will you get back on

How many miles to Babylon

How many tired horses in the sun

How many cigarettes, how much fun

How many nights when your life weighs a ton

How many miles to Babylon

Something in my eyes lets you see what I have done

Don’t you realise that you’re coming with me-To Babylon

How many dreams that never come true

How many lies, baby, what can you do?

How many times have you heard this song

How many miles to Babylon…
