Closest Thing to Heaven Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
10.000 miles into the atmosphere
My body shakes
Is there a welcome here?
Verse 3
Closest thing to heaven
How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven, heaven
Verse 4
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,
Verse 5
Closest thing to heaven
Yeah, it's you
Closest thing to heaven, heaven
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven
How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven
