Closest Thing to Heaven Lyrics

28 days of rain
Flash floods in February
Back in our boats again
Bath water and the baby
What am I gonna do?
There's been a lot of drinking
Looking at ghosts of you
While all the world is sinking

10.000 miles into the atmosphere
My body shakes
Is there a welcome here?

Closest thing to heaven
How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven, heaven

Throw your arms round the world
Make love your destination
Here we go boys and girls
Act like a generation
Give me that ball and chain
By now it must be hurting
Dragging your feet again
Just like a beast of burden
When one and one and one make two
I know I'm high because I've captured you,

Closest thing to heaven
Yeah, it's you
Closest thing to heaven, heaven

Look the world right in the eye
Eat the countries that are making billions
Sweet as homemade apple pie
Saved by crumbs for all the starving millions, yeah

Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven
How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven

Closest Thing to Heaven Meanings

So...I know little or next to nothing about song writing...I was in hs in the 80's so I didn't even have most of the words correct to my then fav songs.....but I'll give this a shot. (...because I have seen TFF 3 times live and had every that makes me the expert into their not)....but I think or feel the song is about marriage....a long marriage that has hit that spot...the spot where the couple have been together for many years and things are sort of dull at the moment. Lyrics say to me, marriage is dull...but I love you and don't want the marriage to end....but what the hell do we do now? tiny thoughts.

You are the most saddest person i think i ever read...i think you should just do what you and your parents want jump off that roof m8
