Adam

Adam please don’t blame yourself
the gates of Eden are meant for somebody else

Adam my dear, no matter what they say or do
I don’t care as long as I can be here with you

I took an apple down from the tree
now they want to see the back of you and me
ah, let them keep their paradise
I wouldn’t think about it twice

bless my soul, oh can’t they understand
it’s not so hard to leave the promised land

– vocalise

I took an apple down from the tree
now they want to see the back of you and me
oh, let them keep their paradise
I wouldn’t think about it twice

Adam baby, don’t you look so sad
how we gonna miss what we never really had

– vocalise
