Lyrics
Deep in a corner of the night, we were lying in the middle of the road
Counting the planes as they flew by inconceivable imagining them go
And drunk we set the world to rise as we fell and hit our heads upon the curb
You make me laugh until I die, can you think of any better way to choke?
Stories told to me and stories told to you and did you ever feel like they were ringing true?
And all their words were glory well they all, well they sounded empty
When we're looking up for heaven, looking up for heaven
And way down here upon the ground when we're lying in the dark
There's no looking up for heaven, looking up for heaven

Not everything you come to plan but we made the best of what we had, you know
Passing the drink from hand to hand we admit we really know nothing at all
Stories told to me and stories told to you and was it feeling real and they were ringing true?
And all their words were glory well they all, well they sounded empty
When we're looking up for heaven, looking up for heaven
And way down here upon the ground when we're lying in the dark
There's no looking up for heaven, looking up for heaven

I'll take my chances on the curb here with you
We watched the plans leave us behind on the curb here with you
We watched the plans leave us behind and, and then you put your hand in mine
And pulled me back from things divine, stop looking up for heaven, waiting to be buried
And all their words were glory well they all, well they sounded empty
When we're looking up for heaven, looking up for heaven
And way down here upon the ground when we're lying in the dark
There's no looking up for heaven, looking up for heaven
