heaven gets closer every day lyrics – waterboys

i was talking to barry who says there’s a change in the air
he’s just found a magic kite that can fly him anywhere
he leans on his window as the trash daytime radio plays
he’s got all the shelter he needs, and heaven gets closer everyday

i got a postcard from mandy; the farmers are bringing in the hay
our friends will be home in the morning, and heaven gets closer… everyday

we don’t think too much about a crisis in the west
because it couldn’t happen here again and anyway; all men are equally blessed
they say a war is coming but it all seems so far away
because where we live the sun shines, and heaven gets closer everyday

i got a postcard from mandy; the farmers are bringing in the hay
our friends will be home in the morning, and heaven gets closer… everyday

i got a letter from london; tanks are rolling over the hay
soldiers will be here in the morning, and heaven gets closer…
