The Gates of Eden

The Gates of Eden
(Difford/Hewerdine)

He drove his car down to a beach
And watched the people bathing
He climbed up upon an old broken wall
Where he saw the sailboats sailing
He thought the storm would never come
And he would not be leaving
Without begging on his knees
At the Gates of Eden

The sun went down the moon came up
The waves began to swallow
A light that cam down from the sky
Where strangers seemed to follow
And all the lovers hand in hand
His loneliness was beaten

To put down the drink
Move away from the window
What did you think
That you would be achieving
By leaving your friends
Without really leaving

The morning came with blackened clouds
And winds from every corner
He sat alone and watched his world
Become a little smaller
From his room he saw the light
It shone down like a beacon
His hands passed like a child
Through the Gates of Eden

In his room as life was saved
He had the final reason
To put down the drink
Move away from the window
What did you thin
That you would be achieving
By leaving your friends
Without really leaving
