His Jeweled Floor

  • written by Rickie Lee Jones


    And when you arrive
    ­shining and new
    Forgotten by the fear and pain
    you put your body through

    On His Jeweled Floor
    We are every one
    Laying in His starry arms,
    On His Jeweled Floor we are standing now
    See me as I am...

    You’ll come in the afternoon
    of a hard travelin’ day
    Blown by a stromy sky
    that finally passes away

    On His Jeweled Floor
    We will meet again
    He holds us all in His starry arms
    On His Jeweled Floor I am standing now
    Can you see me as I am?

    There are no demons, only angels
    Life will surely fade
    Spend it loving tenderly
    Or Shiva at your grave,
    Sit shiva at your grave,

    On His Jeweled Floor
    we will all be there
    He holds us all in His starry arms
    On His Jeweled Floor no one ever falls
    Can you see me as I am,
    as we dance a thousand suns?
