Lyrics[]

In Excelsis, that's where you'll find me
Up above the rain cloud
Gliding past the blinding sunbeams
It's a new day
Sky blue, fresh air, ooh
I spent all of the daytime admiring the violent ocean
There's none certain and good things take time
I call out to the angels
They'll send me a sign to pray for
Little blue jay come to my window
I've been waiting all day
To watch you fly beneath the rainbow

Let me take you back to Excelsis
Out where all of the angels, stars and moon collide around you
Took a new plane that no one else sees
Where I spend all the daytime
Watching the day go by
Watching the time go by me
Watching the day go by
Watching the time go by me

Rolling water floral isles
Boy my love will take you the tops of mountains
Feel the sweet escape
I know I'm gonna take you to a blissful cloud now
Let's get away I know a place where no one ever will find you and me

Rolling water floral isles
Boy my love will take you the tops of mountains
Feel the sweet escape
I know I'm gonna take you to a blissful cloud now
Let's get away I know a place where no one ever will find you and me
