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
Cries 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?
