No joy in heaven
Although the sun may shine
I need the warmth of gin inside

I see the golden track
Blurred in sand and dust
Where burnt out cars decay and rust


No joy in heaven
Despite the glittering stars
Their jagged shapes just tear my heart

Between the sand and stone
The flowers of hope may grow
Then trodden on by commandos



Chanting these words out like a prayer
(A letter from afar)
Hoping someone’s listening up there
(A letter from afar)
Reach for a face that isn’t there
(A letter from afar)
Fooled by my mind again i fear
(A letter from afar)

Too much is not enough
I need to feel your touch
I need to have you close to me

Desert suns and guns
Mosquito nets and bombs
I watch them from my swimming pool

Chanting these words out like a prayer
(A letter from afar)
Hoping someone’s listening up there
(A letter from afar)
Reach for a face that isn’t there
(A letter from afar)
Fooled by my mind again i fear
(A letter from afar)



Chanting these words out like a prayer
(A letter from afar)
Hoping someone’s listening up there
(A letter from afar)
Reach for a face that isn’t there
(A letter from afar)
Fooled by my mind again i fear
(A letter from afar)
A letter from afar
A letter from afar
(Too much is not enough)
A letter from afar
(Too much is not enough)
A letter from afar
I need to feel your touch
I need to feel your touch
(Too much is not enough)
I need to feel your touch
(Too much is not enough)
I need to feel your touch
(Too much is not enough)
I need you close to me
(Too much is not enough)
I need you close to me
(Too much is not enough)
I need you close to me
(Too much is not enough)
I need you close to me
(Too much is not enough)
Close to me
(Forever)
Close to me
(Forever)
