when in heaven lyrics – kitchens of destinction

when marilyn monroe woke up in heaven
she had everything she’d need for the perfect day
the perfect man takes her walking
where no-one can stare

she goes shopping and finds the perfect clothes
to wear for the perfect sleep

but down here

we’re dreaming of cures and drinking well tonight
forgetting all our sorrows, put away our fights
until tomorrow comes around

we sit in the pub waiting for the clubs to open
we will be safe tonight and not wake up next to strangers
thinking i killed the one i loved

he’s drinking slowly, got a hangover
and a smoked up chest that’s too tight

i dream on

imagine what could happen after this drink
i’m wearing wings
join lauren bacall float up to heaven’s gate
wearing danger smiles

she’ll meet with the stars
they’ll break down doors
those shining pearls float off in sp*ce
i’m raving beautifully

when marilyn monroe woke up in heaven
she had everything i’d need

when i go to heaven and stand shivering before this god
i’ll try some complaining, “why that little tiny trick?”

give me the pearls of love, of wisdom and of smiles
give me another chance, a beautiful set of wings

in heaven
when i wake up in heaven
