Alan Parsons Project, The - Closer To Heaven Lyrics




Rising and falling lighter than air
Silently calling no one is there
Oh, bird that is flying so high and
so free
Closer to heaven than you and me

Voices of strangers keep me from
sleep
Guardian angels watch over the
deep
A ship that is sailing way out to
the sea
Closer to heaven than you and me

Visions of rain fall out of blue
skies
Rivers of tears flow out of dry
eyes
Answer my question tell me no
lies
Is this the real world or a fool's
paradise?

Wind that is blowing so wild and
so free
Closer to heaven than you and me

Closer to heaven longing to be
Closer to heaven than you and me

Visions of rain fall out of blue
skies
Rivers of tears flow out of dry
eyes
Answer my question tell me no
lies
Is this the real world or a fool's
paradise?

Love that lies sleeping wakes in
the night
Secrets for keeping that won't
see the light
I look to the future and I hope it
will be
Closer to heaven than you and me

Closer to heaven longing to be
Closer to heaven than you and me

    This song takes me out of the cruel, cold world, away from the *tragedy,* the *pain,* the *sadness,* all the *anger,* my DangerZone and takes me to my Tranquility. To my #SafePlace, maybe... Yeah..... Maybe even to the corner edge of *Paradise.*
    I love this song more than words can express.....

  33. David De Jager

    This is one of the great miami vice moments,no show that compers it

    AD77

    +David De Jager Hell yeah! Vi La Crockett!

    Antonio Washington

    David De Jager , I totally agree. This track was hard to find and to figure out who sung this until now. This track was by far bar none when it comes to be great explanatory on the Miami Vice episode when the miami detective play by "Lou Diamond Phillips" was risking his life to go after the person who killed his partner and Detective Tubbs was in the mix and the person that did it risk his life to prevent himself for turning himself in. It goes to show you that you never ever know where life has it's unexpectations, It's so uncertain. What's more certain is when we get to heaven that would be the best place that, profit, money and power has to offer because God brings power to our lives. Great inspiring track by The Alan Parsons Project that keep there videos in low key profile and great emotional scene of this song that they use on the "Miami Vice Episode."☺

    Dojocho

    super great ending it was episode "red tape"
