Prefab SproutPearly Gates

Feel the sun upon your back Someone somewhere wants to steal it Pray each night you'll catch the thief But while you sleep he comes and takes it Does that make you think little girl? Doesn't it just little boy There'll be no stampede on the pearly gates I'll say "after you" you'll say "i don't mind the wait" There'll be no stampede on those imposing doors Naked and afraid, cowering we crawl on all fours See the smile on her young face Watch life casually erase it Now I know she's all grown up She wears a look I can't quite place yet What makes you cry little girl? Maybe I'm scared little boy There'll be no stampede on the pearly gates I'll say "after you" you'll say "i don't mind the wait" There'll be no stampede on those imposing doors Naked and afraid, cowering we crawl on all fours There'll be no stampede on the pearly gates I'll say "after you" you'll say "i don't mind the wait"
