In the Wide Ruin

This song is by David Crosby and appears on the album Oh Yes I Can (1989).

There was a city
In this desert
Shining with fountains
And pools of clear
Sweet water
So many clouds
Of white birds soaring
It might have been
The sea... and there
Was music

Deep in the wild heart
Nothing ever changes
Deep in the wild heart
Nothing remains

A place of stone
A tower of glass
Where bells of hammered brass
Rang for hours

Deep in the wild heart
Nothing ever changes
Deep in the wild heart
Nothing remains

Over the horizon
Into the majesty
As far as I can see
There is nothing of humanity
In all your windy space
There is no trace of us
I want to see
A human heart
Show it to me...
Show it to me...

Deep in the wild heart
Nothing ever changes
Deep in the wild heart
Nothing remains
Sleep, wild heart
In the wide ruin
