claire in heaven lyrics – capercaillie

i was no more than three days old
too young to speak, too young to count my toes
i think of fields where i might run
this moral twilight i was plucked from
up here we have no goals
you tear your hearts, you claw your souls
i wonder at this life that p*ssed me by
but still i smile

although i’m not with you down there
i sit alone up here and stare
it’s me, my name is claire
claire in heaven
claire in heaven

i wait for my next life patiently
i’m in no rush because of what i see
it’s hard for me to understand
i gaze from poisoned sea to poisoned land
up here we see a new tomorrow
your world’s not round, your world is narrow
for me, i just had a while
but still i smile

although i’m not with you down there
i sit alone up here and stare
it’s me, my name is claire

although i’m not with you down there
i sit alone up here and stare
it’s me, my name is claire
claire in heaven
claire in heaven
