Alphaville – Jerusalem lyrics

Standing on the empty bridge
watching river's waves go by
feeling mellow, lighting a cigarette
silver moon floats through the night
eris, princess of the isles, disperse your
Sparkling trace
lead me on to the house of love
where the gods may turn his eyes

to jerusalem we pray, it's time to meet you
lets take love to jerusalem, oh yeah
lets take love

you might be the one i'm waiting for, i
Think we've met somewhere for sure
chasing shadows leaves you feeling blue
this situation needs a cure
new assassins, new messiahs, keepers of the
Balanced law
strangest lovers of the fire which ignates
The halo of our souls

to jerusalem we pray, it's time to meet you
lets take love to jerusalem, oh yeah
lets take love

big yellow cadillac, carry me back home
on glory roads of pure delight we head out
For the stars...
