Thinking of you, dad.
What does it look like in Heaven?
Is it peaceful? Is it free like they say?
Does the sun shine bright forever?
Has your fears and your pain gone away?

Here on Earth it feels like everything,
good is missing, since you left,
and here on Earth everything's different,
there's an emptiness.

I hope you're dancing in the sky,
And I hope you're singing, in the Angels choir,
I hope the Angels know what they have,
I bet it's so nice, up in Heaven since you arrived.

Now tell me what do you do up in Heaven?
Are you days filled with love and light?
Is there music? Is there art and invention?
Tell me are you happy? Are you more alive?

Coz here on Earth, it feels like everything,
good is missing, since you left,
and here on Earth everything's different,
there's an emptiness.

I hope you're dancing in the sky,
and I hope you're singing, in the Angels choir,
I hope the Angels know what they have,
I bet it's so nice, up in Heaven since you arrived,
since you arrived.
