I think the material is excellent. I’ve benefited so much. I’ve now begun to improvise with some confidence and have written songs that feel authentic. I can now develop musically in a broad and rich way. Your work has illuminated an exciting path forward.– Roger

Friday night I’m going nowhere, all the lights are changing green to red
Turning over TV stations, situations running through my head
Well looking back through time, you know it’s clear that I’ve been blind, I’ve been a fool
To ever open up my heart to all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule

Saturday I’m running wild and all the lights are changing red to green
Moving through the crowd I’m pushing chemicals all rushing through my bloodstream
Only wish that you were here, you know I’m seeing it so clear, I’ve been afraid
To tell you how I really feel, admit to some of those bad mistakes I’ve made

If you want it, come and get it, crying out loud
The love that I was, giving you was, never in doubt
Let go your heart, let go your head and feel it now
Babylon, Babylon

Sunday all the lights of London, shining sky is fading red to blue
I’m kicking through the Autumn leaves and wondering where it is you might be going to
Turning back for home, you know I’m feeling so alone, I can’t believe
Climbing on the stair, I turn around to see you smiling there, in front of me

If you want it, come and get it, crying out loud
The love that I was, giving you was, never in doubt
||: Let go your heart, let go your head and feel it now :|| x4
Babylon, Babylon, Babylon
