Bernstein: Paradise

The last card in my hand
I bet everything on it
My heavy heart
absorbs the cold rain
layer for layer
 
We ignored the signs
Constructed our dreams
Painted them; adorned them with gold
And watched, as the rain smudged the writing
 
We built ourselves a paradise
A paradise for us alone
We created a monument
It was to be our memorial
Stone by stone
A kingdom
Wasn't enough for the two of us
The paradise
When it vanished
The dream that bound us vanished too
 
I walk around
At the edge of time
And see a piece of lost world
 
But not a thought
Takes me away
From this empty scene of devastation
 
We ignored the signs
Constructed our dreams
Staged them like a drama
And chose the path that leads into the abyss
 
We built ourselves a paradise
A paradise for us alone
We created a monument
It was to be our memorial
Stone by stone
A kingdom
Wasn't enough for the two of us
The paradise
When it vanished
The dream that bound us vanished too
 
What have we done?
Wasted land
We lost ourselves among all the lies
I see, I fly
You fly away
And are beating your burning
Wings like crazy
 
We built ourselves a paradise
A paradise for us alone
We created a monument
It was to be our memorial
Stone by stone
A kingdom
Wasn't enough for the two of us
The paradise
When it vanished
The dream that bound us vanished too
