Children Of Eden Cast Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Close to Home ADAM
All that I had to give, I gave that boy
Once he was young and once he brought my heart such joy
He'd ride my shoulders and 'cross the fields we'd roam
I still can see those moments like yesterday
I was a fool to think they'd make him want to stay
At home

YOUNG CAIN AND ABEL
One two three
Owls are in the tree
Four five six
Foxes in the sticks
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
Three two one
Now we all go home

One two three
Owls are in the tree
Four five six
Foxes in the sticks
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
Three two one
Now we all go home

ADAM (simultaneously)
It's time to make a home
Heaven knows the life's been hard
Summers brief and arid
Winters bleak and numb

Look what we call home
These old walls are stained and scarred

EVE
I can still remember
What each scar was from

ADAM
You could call it run down

EVE
Worn out

ADAM
Threadbare

BOTH
And I guess you'd come
Close to home
Close to home

ADAM
And I remember, in someone else's garden long ago
We had all we could eat

EVE
But it seems the fruit our own hands grow
Somehow tastes twice as sweet

ABEL
Six five four
Goslings on the shore
Three two one
Now we all go home

ADAM
On this barren plot

ABEL
One two three
Owls are in the tree

ADAM
We'll plant our wheat and dig our well

ABEL
Four five six
Foxes in the sticks

ADAM
And we'll be a family

ABEL
Six five four
Goslings on the shore

ADAM
Steady as a star

EVE
Look at what we've got

ADAM AND ABEL
Ba ba bum, ba ba ba ba bum

EVE
Only what we've made ourselves

ADAM AND ABEL
Eight nine ten, now we start again

EVE
Though it's next to nothing
Look how rich we are

ADAM
Funny now how Eden doesn't seem so far

ADAM AND EVE
Come sit besides me in the dying light
What storms the morning brings, we'll weather all right
Your hand in my hand
And as we sit here, huddled in the gloom
Paradise seems strangely close
Close to home

ABEL
Ba ba bum, ba ba ba ba bum

ADAM AND EVE
Close to home

ABEL
Three two one
Now we all go

ADAM, EVE, AND ABEL
Home
