Lyrics

I know who shot Kennedy/
Stonehenge ain't no mystery to me/And the Mona Lisa herself/Told me why she smiled

You won't believe all the things that I see

As I walk on the stars, sleep in the clouds/I hear you at night, when you cry out loud/
Here, there's no pain, there's no fear/
But I can see my house from up here

I saw our Amy's class play/
Hard to believe she's already eight/And you wished I could be there/But how would you know that I was

'Cause I left this world so suddenly/With so many people depending on me/I only wish that there'd been more time for goodbye/I couldn't speak but I tried

Now I walk on the stars, sleep in the clouds/I hear you at night, when you cry out loud/Here, there's no pain, there's no fear/But I can see my house from up here

If a streetlamp burns out as you pass underneath/Or you swear someone's there so you turn round to see/Or the radio's on and they keep playin' our song/And you fall back through time's open door/
That's me tryin' to touch you once more

Now I walk on the stars, sleep in the clouds/Move on with your life, go make me proud/Here, I'm away but I'm always near/'Cause I can see my house...from up here
