The ancient King of Babylon passed the Hammurabi code of laws

It was carved on black diorite 3700 years ago

You stand before the display, looking intently at the carvings

I stand aside, quietly admiring your face, which I deeply adore

Verse 2
Offerings, alter, war, bow & arrow, whose past do they belong to?

I love how you belong only to me in the midst of this crowd

We pass the Sumerian Goddess

And I wish in the name of the Goddess

My missing goes on like the Tigris River

When what is left of the Ancient Civilization is but an illegible language

The myth becomes a never-ending poem

*Chorus
My love for you has been written before this Century

And it has been buried in the flatlands of Mesopotamia

Uncovered after many centuries

We find the wordings to be still clear & intelligible

My love for you has been written before this century

And it has been buried in the flatlands of Mesopotamia

The promise of forever carved in cuneiform

The promise that has been eroded for thousands of years, will be re-enacted now

*Repeat Verse 1
*Repeat Chorus

I feel exhausted, I am far away from home

I am afraid that I will never be by your side again

*Repeat Chorus
