Lyrics

As formless as fire

Transparent as glass

As warm as the summer sun

And soft as the grass

 

There’s California

In a frame by my bed

But there’s nothing but cotton

Where I lay my head

 

It’s a long way to heaven

And it’s hard to see clear through the rain

But I’m following the angels

And I know that I’ll get there some day

 

I’m looking for something

To keep me alive

I’ve felt the heartache

And I’ve told the lies

 

But maybe I’m missing

The point of this game

If you take the first step

Then I’ll do the same

 

It’s a long way to heaven

And it’s hard to see clear through the rain

But I’m following the angels

And I know that I’ll get there some day

 

All these tears are forgiven

All this water runs clean

I can breathe

I can see

I can love

I can be

Anything

I want to be

 

It’s a long way to heaven

And it’s hard to see clear through the rain

But I’m following the angels

And I know that I’ll get there some day
