The last remains of Pompeii burned 
The gadabout had just returned 
To see the ashes covering the town 

Empires burned and cities fell 
While lovers kissed and said farewell 
And laid their fragile bodies on the ground 

	But I'm not scared to burn 
	To dust, I will return again 
        If you'll stay by my side 
	I'll lay down and I won't hide from fate 

Vesuvius was growing colder 
Embers that had hotly smoldered 
Settled into lifeless dust below 

The gadabout was still alive 
But not another soul survived 
So through the blackened streets he walked alone 


The centuries will come and go 
The sun will shine, the wind will blow 
And we will curse the passing of the years

But time's eternal, day by day
It's us who pass, and blow away		 
Soon no one will remember we were here
