I heard them say today you’d gone for good.
A few short words, and the rest was understood.
Electric words in echoes
From a man I never knew —
Vibrations in the air I breathe,
But no longer share with you.

Once more, heaven’s a brighter place.
Somewhere the sun lights your face.
And we’re lonely as stone.
Lonely, flying through space on this stone.
Caught here, under the stars, all alone.

I remember when I used to watch you play.
You believed in heaven and you seemed to know the way,
Singing for your supper,
Or to chase away the rain.
Now I don’t know where you are,
And when I’ll see you smile again.

Once more, heaven’s a brighter place.
Somewhere the sun lights your face.
And we’re lonely as stone.
Lonely, flying through space on this stone.
Caught here, under the stars, all alone,

Where our dreams die, one by one,
Fading in the bleach of a cold sun.
Our fathers die of heartache,
Our children die of fear;
Crystallized in amber age,
We can’t find our way out of here.

Once more, heaven’s a brighter place.
Somewhere the sun lights your face.
And we’re lonely as stone.
Lonely, flying through space on this stone.
Caught here, under the stars, all alone.
