up here in heaven (live) lyrics – chris de burgh

up on the hill, i see it begin
markin’ the heroes, where they fall
in the stone
in the stone the names of those who have gone

and over the river, there is a place
where they remember boys and men
widows talk
widows talk of all that they could have been

we can hear you
we can hear you whisper our names
we can see you
we can see you readin’ our names

up here in heaven, we stand together
both the enemy and the friend, till the end of time
up here in heaven, we are forever
there is only one god up here, for all of the world

what of the children caught in the war
how can we tell them what it’s for
when they cry
when they cry are voices heard anymore?

are you listenin’
are you listenin’ men of the war?
there is nothin’
there is nothin’ worth dyin’ for

up here in heaven, we stand together
both the enemy and the friend, till the end of time
up here in heaven, we are forever
there is only one god up here, for all of the world

there is only one god up here, the god of the world
