The Waterboys Too Close To Heaven Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2013 03:27:52 AM

All your trouble will be over
So will your pain
You are gonna see those blue skies
Bursting right through the rain
The higher you climb
The lower you fall
You got too close to heaven, that's all

Now in the morning you can cry all that you want to
We'll spend the whole day weeping
Right now I want you to lay down your weary head
And let me see you sleeping
You've been walking around baby, inflamed and ashamed
Feeling like you're one inch tall
You got too close to heaven, that's all

You're way, way too hard on yourself baby
You got some pretty basic things wrong
You wouldn't believe me if I told you
Why I wrote you into this song
You're looking at your heart baby, you're calling it black
But like Icarus and like Saul
You got too close to heaven, that's all

Now I know this hurt that you're feeling
I've felt these same things too
I've got spaces way down deep inside of me
That are just the same as you
You wanna wrap your arms around your head, turn out the lights
And roll yourself into a ball
You got too close to heaven, that's all
You got too close to heaven
You got too close to heaven

Now are you blinded by the brilliance?
Are you dazzled by the light?
Why is it I see nothing but emptiness
In your cold beaten eyes that once were bright
I know you just can't help but run
When you hear that sweet voice call
You got too close to heaven, that's all

I walked a mile for you baby
So won't you smile for me baby?
