Still Down Here

St. Peter says "You picked a real good day"
Your lungs fill back up with air and your worries float away
Jesus smiles, He is 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 and 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 in both places 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 and 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 in the shadow-land, here where there's doubt
Here where we must learn to live, with what we live without

Clouds of silver and streets of gold
Where no shadow is cast, there's nobody growing old
You find some old friends and take a walk around
But believe them when they say - "I 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 shed one tear
Don't forget about me, don't forget about me
I'm still down here
