lyrics

Daughter of heaven

daughter of heaven, oh daughter of now
drifting away and you don’t make a sound
we’ll cry when we hear that you ran from this town

she’s gone to a new place now
she’s gone to a new place now

daughter of heaven, oh daughter of now
the stars are your jewels, the moon is your crown
we all stand in awe at your right to astound

she’s gone to a new place now
she’s gone to a new place now

daughter of heaven, oh daughter of now
your eyes they were closed and your hands they were bound
there’s a time in the past that I helped you come down

she’s gone to a new place now
she’s gone to a new place now

daughter of heaven, oh daughter of now
drifting away and you don’t make a sound
we’ll cry
when we hear that you ran from this town

she’s gone to a new place now
she’s gone to a new place now

she’s gone to a new place now
she’s gone to a new place now

she’s gone to a new place now
