“Floating In Heaven” lyrics (Via AZ Lyrics)

“It’s time for me to say goodbye
And search for pastures new
Our future lies above the clouds
Beyond the sky so blue”

“I’ve never seen the moon so white
I’ve never seen the sun so bright
I’m floating in heaven
I’m so high”

“Now the world’s so far away
The planets all explored
The promise of a brand new day
And all that came before, oh yeah”

“I look down on our earthly home
It makes our troubles seem to small
I’m floating in heaven
I’m so high”

“I will send you signals from above
From places never seen before
I will travel for a million miles
To find what we’ve been searching for”

“I’ve seen the light so clear
I’ve never seen the stars so near
I’m floating in heaven
I’m so high”

“Wave the world goodbye”

Brian May is currently on the road with Queen in Europe this July, playing in Italy, France, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
