FOREIGN NIGHTS (WORKING DOG IN BABYLON)

(For Jenny)

 

I’m a working alien in a land of heat and stone

a casualty of an economic war

that took me away from home.

It’s the politics of money and power

It’s the hope that we can build a future in a world

getting smaller everywhere

 

BRIDGE:

I can hear the siren in the work yard

another shift and I’ll be closer to you

I’m a working dog in Babylon and only

your love can get me through.

 

CHORUS:

Foreign nights - took you away from me

Foreign nights - are not where I belong

Foreign nights - filled with dust and dreams

Foreign nights - trapped here in Babylon

 

As long as I keep moving

I know I will be allright

‘cause if I stop to think I’ll drown and sink

in this sea of foreign nights

I’ve got to keep my hands busy

got to keep pushing through

got to learn to deal with this time away from you

 

BRIDGE:

I can hear the siren in the work yard

another shift and I’ll be closer to you

I’m a working dog in Babylon and only

your love can get me through.

 

CHORUS:

Foreign nights - are filled with future dreams kept on hold

Foreign nights - are filled with the promises of fools gold

 

Quiet moments in the dark are hardest to face

the sun goes down but not the pain

I want to be with you all the time

I want to be with you, to be with you all my life

I’m going to have to get through…Foreign Nights.
