Light gets in my eyes
In the night time
When the world is painted black
What am I seeing?
City sleeps in doubt
Fade to blackout
Maybe this will bring it back
What am I seeing?
Too high for anyone to know
Must be the light beyond the holes
In the floor of heaven
Above the world
Holes in the floor of heaven

Once I saw a star
If that's what they are
Distant worlds on fire
Set by my maker's hand
Believing just because
Child that I was
In the thing I still desire
To hold my maker's hand
Just like they did so long ago
Must be up there beyond the holes
In the floor of heaven
Above the world

One by one by one by one, ten thousand
Lights came on and on
Last night I thought I saw the hand of God
Above our house
So I waited and watched 'til now
For the presence of your being
Maker of all, seen and unseen
The safety of your arms
Protecting me
Holding me
Don't deny me, please

Please just let me stay here
Where I lay myself down
Don't send me home now
Here, listening to your heart beat
A warm and lonesome sound
Don't send me home now
Blue-green planet lies below
Beneath the light, beyond the holes
In the floor of heaven
Above the world
