I have sailed the peaceful waters of the ocean deep and blue
I held my breath and watched the western sunsets golden hue
I've flown above the mountain peaks and valleys wide and green
But you're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

You're the nearest thing to heaven, yes, you are
I have searched for happiness so long and far
But my search for love was through, the day that I found you
'Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven, yes, you are

I confess that I've been tempted by a luring magic charms
When a smile was flashed my way and stood before two open arms
But I turned and walked away because I love you like I do
You're the nearest thing to heaven, darlin' you

You're the nearest thing to heaven, yes, you are
I have searched for happiness so long and far
But my search for love was through, the day that I found you
'Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven, yes, you are

I have watched the silver raindrops fall to earth to cool the day
Watched the rainbow at twilight when the clouds had blown away
I love the pretty flowers but they cannot buy the worth
'Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven on this earth

You're the nearest thing to heaven, yes, you are
I have searched for happiness so long and far
But my search for love was through, the day that I found you
'Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven, yes, you are
