heaven

i will run the streets and hostile lands
i will touch the rain with all I have
i will breathe the air, just scream it loud
my feet will never touch the ground
because the days they feel like ancient clocks
like when kids grow up and learn to walk
because your life is full of pure desire
a place so gloriously wired

the lights and sounds
oh God this is such a mess
and it's like our world
but we're the last ones left
and the hair it stands
on the back of our necks
and i swear it shows
Heaven must be just like this

do you see the hills beneath the clouds?
the Stars as trails to lead you out
can you sense the pain? it's everywhere
and if you try, you'll never care
and the love you had
when you were young
is right outside for all to come
because your life is full of pure Desire
a place so gloriously wired

the lights and sounds
oh God this is such a mess
and it's like our world
but we're the last ones left
and the hair it stands
on the back of our necks
and i swear it shows
Heaven must be just like this

if you see the light break through the clouds
and Fire up at distant towns
well the world will be begin, exactly how it ends
when you call for Love, when you are lost
for evermore or whatever it costs
and the world will begin, exactly how it ends

please stay, don't go
i’ve got you now,
are you curious?



here i am

my mum always said all the smart modern-day poets became musicians because it pays better.

those are the lyrics to 'heaven' by angels & airwaves
