So Close to Heaven


Lyrics & Info

Performances (4)

I was just a child when you took my hand 
We set the whole damn world on fire 
You showed me what it was to be loved by a man

But one day the axe just fell 
And the whole world got shot all to hell 
There's a hole in my heart

We were so, so close to heaven 
We were almost as good, as good as it gets 
And you were almost an angel 
That was almost heaven-sent 
So close to heaven, so close

Our love was crazy and wild 
Tender and mild, slow and strong 
Two hearts are set on fire as noble as a storm 
The lightning fell from your eyes 
Suddenly, there was no goodbyes 
There's a hole in my heart

We were so, so close to heaven 
We were almost as good, as good as it gets 
And you were almost an angel 
That was almost heaven-sent 
So close to heaven, so close

Wax wings that flew too close to the sun 
But wasn't it so fun to fly 
It's far better to love and to lose 
Than never to love than to die

Oh, we were so, so close to heaven 
We were almost, almost, almost as good as it gets 
And you were almost an angel 
That was almost heaven-sent 
So close to heaven, 
So close to heaven, 
So close to heaven

So Close to Heaven
