St. Peter says "You picked a real good day"
Your lungs fill back up with air - your worries float away
Jesus smiles - he's a handsome man
He's taller than you thought - eyes so warm - reaching out his hand

In the Holy Kingdom angels sing a hymn
For all your good behavior they handed you your crown & wings
You don't feel the sorrow, there's no pain no fear
Don't forget about me - don't forget about me
I'm still down here

Everyone knew - you were on your way
Earlier than expected, said the papers that day
You saw your family - some for the very first time
There were smiling faces, strawberry cake and a welcome home sign

In the Holy Kingdom angels sing a hymn
For all your good behavior they handed you your crown & wings
You don't feel the sorrow, there's no pain or fear
Don't forget about me - don't forget about me
I'm still down here

Here in the shadow-land - Here where there's doubt
Here where we must learn to live - With what we live with out

Clouds of silver and streets of gold
Where no shadow is cast - and nobodies growing old
You find an old friends and take a walk around
But believe them when they say - "tell you one thing - just don't look down"

In the holy kingdom - angels sing a hymn
Stay there above the clouds now - don't ever she'd one tear
Don't forget about me - don't forget about me,

I'm still down here...
