Of the ocean deep and blue
I held my breath and watched
The western sunset's golden hue

I've flown above the mountain peaks
And valley's wide and green
But you're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

You're the nearest thing to heaven, yes you are
I have searched for happiness so long and far
But my search for love was through
The day that I found you
'Cause you're the nearest thing to heaven, yes you are

I confess that I've been tempted
