Standing on this empty street
Watching river's waves go by
Feeling mellow, lighting a cigarette
Silver moon floats through the night
Eris, Princess of the Isles
Disperse your sparkling trace
Lead him on to the house of love
Where the gods may turn his eyes

To Jerusalem we pray
It's time to meet you there
Let's take love to Jerusalem
Oh yeah, let's make love (in Jerusalem)

You might be the one I'm waiting for
I think we've met somewhere for sure
Chasing shadows leaves you feeling blue
This situation needs a cure
New assassins, new messiahs
Keepers of the balanced law
Strangest lovers of the fire
Which ignites the halo of our souls

In Jerusalem we pray
It's time to meet you there
Let's take love to Jerusalem
Oh yeah, let's make love

To Jerusalem we pray
It's time to meet you there
Let's take love to Jerusalem
Oh yeah, oh Jerusalem

Big yellow Cadillac
Carry me back home
On glory roads of pure delight
We head out for the stars

In Jerusalem we pray
It's time to meet you there
Let's take love to Jerusalem
Oh yeah, let's make love
