Two Thousand Years

Billy Joel2014年1月20日


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
