In The Wide Ruin - David Crosby

There was a city in this desert
Shining with fountains
And pools of clear sweet water
So many clouds of white birds soaring
It might have been the sea and there was music

Deep in the wild heart
Nothing ever changes
Deep in the wild heart
Nothing remains

A palace of stone
A tower of glass
Where bells of hammered brass rang the hours

Deep in the wild heart
Nothing ever changes
Deep in the wild heart
Nothing remains

[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]

Over the horizon
Into the majesty
As far as I can see
There is nothing of humanity

In all your windy spaces
There is no trace of us
I want to see a human heart
Show it to me, show it to me

Deep in the wild heart
Nothing ever changes
Deep in the wild heart
Nothing remains

Sleep wild heart
In the wide ruin
