First into Heaven, rush through the pearly gates,
You can’t hear me, I can’t see you,
No more time to wait.
First into Heaven, fly past the sunlit stairs,
I won’t lose you, you won’t lose me,
There’s too much time to care.
First into Eden, clipping the crimson rose,
Thorns and sorrow, leave for tomorrow,
Lost here in the glow.
First into Eden, garden without the rain,
Come tomorrow, there’ll be no sorrow,
If you’re coming back again.
Lost in the heavens, forgetting the earth below,
Don’t you see that what we’re feeling,
Only we can know.
Lost in the heavens, drift through the empty clouds,
What’s that you say? You’re leaving today,
No I don’t think that’s allowed.
Back in the garden, barren without the rain,
The trees are dying, I’m not crying,
I have no tears for pain.
Back in the garden, why did they close the gates?
You look so blue now, your lips don’t move now,
Don’t tell me it’s too late.
