Closer To Heaven

By Alan Parsons Project


Rising and falling,
lighter than air.
Silently calling;
no one is there.

Oh bird that is flying
so high and so free
closer to heaven
than you and me

Voices of strangers
keep me from sleep;
guardian angels
watch over the deep.

A ship that is sailing
way out to the sea
closer to heaven
than you and me.

Visions of rainfall
out of blue skies;
rivers of tears flow
out of dry eyes.

Answer my question,
tell me no lies:
is this the real world?
Or a fools paradise?

Wind that is blowing
so wild and so free;
closer to heaven
than you and me.

Closer to heaven,
longing to be
closer to heaven
than you and me.

Love that lies sleeping
wakes in the night
secrets for keeping
that won't see the light.

I look to the future
and I hope it will be
closer to heaven
than you and me.

Closer to heaven,
longing to be
closer to heaven
than you and me.


This "poem" is actually the lyrics to the song "Closer To Heaven", by Alan Parsons Project, from their album Gaudi. This is one of my all-time favorite rock&roll songs.
