A fire upstairs in heaven

There’s a cold cold wind blowing, the wine is on the table
And the radio is playing music that makes you feel at ease
In our room there’s still the Christmas tree and the sheperds near the stable
I thought that New Years Eve could only bring us peace

Then we raise our glasses and we make a wish, we reveal our new intentions
And we open up the curtains just to see the fireworks
Then the phone rings loud, the sirene sounds there’s a fire upstairs in heaven
I know that New Years Eve will never be the same

There’s a fire upstairs in heaven
And there’s a soul that cries out in pain
And all these boys and girls ‘ll go to heaven
Leaving all they’ve left behind down in the rain

When we rush down town and we park our car we see so many worried people
But there’s no-one there to tell us just what is going on
But we’re scared to death for our youngest girl is there upstairs in heaven
I’m sure that New Years Eve has never been so cold

And it crossed our mind if we could rewind we would never let her go there
But we find our girl shaking, barefoot in the snow
for she lost her boots cause the floor’s too hot in the fire upstairs in heaven
I know that New Years Eve will never be the same

There’s a fire upstairs in heaven
And there’s a soul that cries out in pain
And all these boys and girls ‘ll go to heaven
Leaving all they’ve left behind down in the rain

There’s a fire upstairs in heaven
But I think that we will see them all again
