"Eden Is Burning" as written by and Mellencamp....
Diane and Jack went to the movies
They went to see Richard Pryor
Screamin' on his knees for his lover
How could have I been wrong about you?
How could I have been so wrong about you?

[Chorus:]
Eden is burning
I can see it from my window
Better take it to the water
Eden is burning
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Eden is burning
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Thinking of Havana
Eating cream and bananas
You and me in the sunshine
How could have I been wrong about you?
How could I have been so wrong about you?

[Chorus:]

How could have I been wrong about you?
How could I have been so wrong about you?
With love on our side
With love on our side

Here's the masquerade of our living
Well, I hope it makes you feel better
It's for our own protection
I thought we were forever, me and you
But nothin's forever, I guess it's true

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]

    General CommentYet another song about a guy missing his girl and questioning their times together. I didn't realize there were this many songs with this theme.

    General CommentI think this song is more about a marriage falling apart and trying to remember the good times.
