Twenty-eight 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
Lookin' at ghosts of you
While all the world is sinking

Ten thousand 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 and one make two
I know I'm high because I've captured you
Yeah

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
Who! Hey, yeah
Closest thing to Heaven
How do you do it?

Closest thing to Heaven
Who! Hey! Hey!
Closest thing to Heaven
Closest thing to Heaven
