Three Birds In Babylon
by The Gray Havens

Album: She Waits
by The Gray Havens


[Verse 1]
Deep in the heart of stone
The walls are cold and scarred
Where the phantom, shadow figures are
Down by the gates, there sang a lark
She comes at the break of dawn
The rays fall on her dress
You know, she used to be a silhouette
Deep in the heart of stone

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And everyday, she comes to say
"Look up, look at the dawn"
Yes, I escaped the shadows once
I listened to His Son

[Chorus 1]
They say
Look how she goes
She gave herself away
Her crown, her throne
Like a fool, like a renegade
Now wasting her days and her better youth
On tricks and charades, but we see right through
Look how she goes

[Verse 2]
Deep in the heart of stone
No fire, no flame, no spark
Can overtake or tame the dark
Of freedom, they're very fond
Sing along, three cheers for Babylon
She goes at the break of dawn
In that same sun-golden dress
You know, she's waiting for the silhouette
Then sang the nightingale

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And everyday, she comes to say
"Look up, look at the dawn
Yes, I escaped the darkness once
I heard and sang along
But no one sang along"

[Chorus 2]
They say
Look how she goes
She gave herself away
A desert rose
What a delusional run-away
Got stars in her hair, walks on the moon
It's a moonlight mirage, but we see right through
Look how she goes

[Bridge]
And down by the gates, a dove
Sang with the girl
And suddenly the song heard the morning call
They held with their eyes the dawn
And three cheers for Babylon
Sounded strange as they turned to say...

[Chorus 3]
Look how she goes
She gave herself away
No heart of stone
We've been fools, we've been renegades
Now wasting our days, and the better youth
On these tricks and charades, now we see right through
Look how she goes (she gave herself away)
Look how she goes
Look how she goes
