The Republic Of Heaven

lyrics

here, at the end of your road
i stand without a story of my own
i commit to the ground
your sceptre and your shroud
i am not their subject anymore

there are no Signs in the sky
no angel wings brushing by
what i have is what i see
the best in you to the best in me

there are no bushes burning
Fair Folk not returning
what we have is what we’ll be
the Love in you to the Love in me

and i’m left here to build my own republic of heaven

i will look for you in the twilight
every summer wind will bear your name
the robins who came and flew away again
i will honor you in everything

Mama, the war is over
the war is over in my heart
and i’ll stoop down
touch my head and my heart to the ground

we’re left here to build our own republic of heaven
we’re sent here to build our own republic of heaven
our own heaven
