Forever, you'll be remembered as the one who played it cool 
Whenever they speak your name they'll say it's you who broke the golden rule 
But here's what I really want to know 
Did you see the writing on the wall 
 
Babylon 
How long can this foolish magic carry on 
Babylon 
Who will love you when the fantasy of youth is gone 

Babylon is it true that your streets were paved with gold 
And did you play beneath the stars 
Babylon did you know it would all come down to 
How you played the dealer's cards 

Remember how you loved the laughter 
A kingdom on the rise 
Crys in the night would turn you to song 
And when they call ooh you sang along 

Here's what I really want to know 
Did you see the writing on the wall 

Babylon 
How long will this foolish magic carry on 
Babylon 
Who will love you when the fantasy of youth is gone 

Babylon is it true that your streets were paved with gold 
And did you play beneath the stars 
Babylon did you know it would all come down to 
How you played the dealer's cards 

It's over you rate two pages in some book 
Your legacy 
Lost in the night and still you sing your song 
For those who will take heed 

Here's what I really want to know 
Did you see the writing on the wall 

Babylon 
How long will this foolish magic carry on 
Babylon 
Who will love you when the fantasy of youth is gone 

Babylon is it true that your streets were paved with gold 
And did you play beneath the stars 
Babylon did you know it would all come down to 
How you played the dealer's cards
