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 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 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, and 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 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 want to 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
Are you blinded by the brilliance? Are you dazzled by the Light? Why is it I see nothing but emptiness in your tired 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?
