Lyrics

Taillights makin' a long red snake
Slips through the darkness in the wake
Of a morning rush that's underway

Another morning, stifled yawning
Mesmerized before the dawn is
Fading out to gray

Then up over the rise our hearts take flight
As the view ahead unfolds
The sky fills up with unearthly light
Of fiery rose and gold
Fiery rose and gold

Chorus
Heaven - This must be the light of heaven all around me

Clicking on the keyboard, ringing on the phone
We'll drown in the office drone
If we don't get away
Lookin' at the clock it ticks so slow
Hours til it's time to go
Never make it through the day

Then there is music comin' from the radio
Seems to lift up from the ground
Moving thru the rhythm, basking in the glow
We rise up on the sound
Rise up on the sound

Heaven - This must be the sound of heaven all around me
Heaven - This must be the music of heaven all around me

We live out our routines
Beneath a veil of black and white
But there are colors rarely seen
And they're shimmering on the other side
Shimmering on the other side

Another day down shot for good
Tied up in a traffic jam
With a little bit of time alone
Wondering if I'm living the way I should
What am I doing, where am I going?

Later in the evening we've got some time to spare
And you give me a smile so bright
And I know my answer hovers in the air
Somewhere near that light
Somewhere near that light

Heaven - This must be the light of heaven all around me
Heaven - This must be the sound of heaven all around me
Heaven - This must be the music of heaven all around me
