Two Thousand Years

Billy Joel2014年1月20日

Lyrics

In the beginning

 

There was the cold and the night

 

Prophets and angels gave us the fire and the light

 

Man was triumphant

 

Armed with the faith and the will

 

That even the darkest ages couldn't kill

 

Too many kingdoms

Too many flags on the field

So many battles so many wounds to be healed

Time is relentless

Only true love perseveres

 

It's been a long time and now I'm with you

 

After two thousand years

 

This is our moment

 

Here at the crossroads of time

 

We hope our children carry our dreams down the line

 

They are the vintage

What kind of life will they live

 

Is this a curse or a blessing that we give

 

Sometimes I wonder

 

Why are we so blind to fate

Without compassion there can be no end to hate

 

No end to sorrow

 

Caused by the same endless fears

 

Why can't we learn from all we've been through

After two thousand years

 

There will be miracles

After the last war is won

Science and poetry rule in the new world to come

Prophets and angels

 

Gave us the power to see

 

What an amazing future there will be

 

And in the evening

 

After the fire and the light

 

One thing is certain: Nothing can hold back the light

 

Time is relentless

 

And as the past disappears

 

We're on the verge of all things new

 

We are two thousand years
