Closest Thing To Heaven

Tears For Fears

 Twenty eight days of rain, Flash floods in February,

 Back in our boats again, Bath water and the baby.

 What am I gonna do ? There's been a lot of drinking,

 Looking at ghosts of you, While all the world is sinking.

 Ten thousand miles into the atmosphere,

 My body shakes, Is there a welcome here ?

Refrain :

         Closest thing to heaven

         How do you do it ?

         Closest thing to heaven, heaven.

Verse 2 (Repeat Verse 1 Chords) :

Throw you arms round the world, Make love your destination,
Here we go boys and girls, Act like a generation,
Give me that ball and chain, By now it must be hurting
Dragging your feet again,Just like a beast of burden.

When one and one and one and one make two
I know I'm high because I've captured you, yeah

Refrain :

Closest thing to heaven
Yeah, it's you
Closest thing to heaven, heaven


 Look the world right in the eye

 Eat the countries that are making billions

 Sweet as homemade apple pie

 Saved by crumbs for all the starving millions, yeah       
Closest thing to heaven

Refrain (ad lib) :

                 Closest thing to heaven

How do you do it?
Closest thing to heaven
Closest thing to heaven
