And I can see the lights go down on Bethel town
And I can see the banners fly tonight
Somewhere out there the cannon's lighting up the sky
And everything is faded into white
I saw on high an angel fly
And looking down upon me there
The stars tonight
Light up the sky
And everything is quiet
Don't take me wrong
And as I stand here wondering
I can't breathe at all
I can't breathe at all
I can't breathe at all
Oh no no

Thomas I don't know what will become of me
And I have never seen this sort of thing
And I have never felt so many miles away
And everything I know I keep it in
And I heard a sound
And looked around
But everyone was quiet
Then from on high
An angel choir
A million voices singing
Don't take me wrong
And as I'm down here watching
I can't breathe at all
I can't breathe at all
I can't breathe at all

Someone's singing songs out there tonight
Li li li li
High li li li li li
High li li li li li
High li li li li li

And still I'll get on
When there's nothing but songs
And there's nothing but songs
In my head
In my head now
In my head
Oh whoa whoa
