"Stairway to the Skies" as written by Sharon J. Den Adel, Robert Westerholt and Martinus J. E. Martijn Spierenburg....
Seven seconds to the rise
Can't believe I'm still alive
And heaven was waiting for me
I thought this would be the end
But I know you'll understand
All that is keeping me here

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
Whenever you call for me
Know that I'm only one step behind

I sense this time I may have changed
But one this still remains
I'm torn and the hate still lingers
I slowly start to realize
We won't reunite
I still have to march on through

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
Whenever you call for me
Know that I'm only one step behind

Is it a curse or a fortune?
Have I been blinded by regret?
Redemption awaits
My soul is at stake
Will I find a stairway to the skies
In the end?

I dream of a stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
Whenever you call for me
Know that I'm only one step behind
Know that I'm only one step behind
