The Lyrics Are Below


Billy Joel

Two Thousand Years



In the beginning

There was the cold and the night

Prophets and angels gave us the fire and the light

Man was triumphant

Armed with the faith and the will

That even the darkest ages couldn't kill


Too many kingdoms

Too many flags on the field

So many battles, so many wounds to be healed

Time is relentless

Only true love perseveres

It's been a long time and now I'm with you

After two thousand years


This is our moment

Here at the crossroads of time

We hope our children carry our dreams down the line

They are the vintage

What kind of life will they live?

Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?


Sometimes I wonder

Why are we so blind to fate?

Without compassion, there can be no end to hate

No end to sorrow

Caused by the same endless fears

Why can't we learn from all we've been through

After two thousand years?


There will be miracles

After the last war is won

Science and poetry rule in the new world to come

Prophets and angels

Gave us the power to see

What an amazing future there will be


And in the evening

After the fire and the light

One thing is cretain: Nothing can hold back the light

Time is relentless

And as the past disappears

We're on the verge of all things new

We are two thousand years
