What Are They Doing In Heaven Today

This song is by The Be Good Tanyas and appears on the album Hello Love (2006).

I'm thinking of friends whom I used to know
Who lived and suffered in this world below
They're gone up to heaven, but I want to know
What are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today
Where sin and sorrow have all gone away?
Peace is flowing like a river, they say
Oh, what are they doing there now?

There are some whose hearts were burdened with care
They spent their moments all frightened and scared
They clung to the cross in trembling and fear
But what are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today
Where sin and sorrow have all gone away?
Peace is flowing like a river, they say
Oh, what are they doing there now?

There's some who were poor and often despised
Who looked up towards heaven with tear-blinded eyes
The people were heedless and deaf to their cries
But what are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today
Where sin and sorrow have all gone away?
Peace is flowing like a river, they say
Oh, what are they doing there now?
But what are they doing there now?
