​By the Waters of Babylon I Drove My Car

This song is by Dudley Saunders and appears on the album Restore (1996).

By the waters of Babylon I drove my car
With you beside me
It was not far
You traced the map-roads with the edge of a knife
By the waters of Babylon
I lost your life

By the watb ers of Babylon a-headed west
You told me stories that had no sense
I looked at your sweet lips
That spoke once so fine
By the waters of Babylon
I lost your mind

Down through the windshield
On a ray of sun
The crows swept down
And it was done
I looked in the darkness
Where their beaks had pried
By the waters of Babylon
I lost your eyes

By the waters of Babylon
That car broke down
I laid you out upon the ground
Dust covered you over
The car still won't start
By the waters of Babylon
I lost your heart
