The Most Beautifully Sad Song You'll Hear Today: 'Dancing in the Sky'

ICTMN Staff
9/25/13

"Dancing in the Sky" is a simple song about the loss of a loved one, and the video isn't going to win any awards for production value. But that's the beauty of YouTube -- who needs an award as validation when you've racked up over a million and a half views? The achingly exquisite song is by Vancouver-based duo Dani and Lizzy, who describe their sound as "hip-pop" -- although this is a straight-up ballad in 6/8 time. The song is available on iTunes; you can learn more about Dani and Lizzy at DaniandLizzy.com. Scroll down below the video for the lyrics

What does it look like in heaven?
Is it peaceful? Is it free like they say?
Does the sun shine bright forever
Have your fears and your pain gone away?

'Cause here on Earth it feels like everything good is missing since you left
And here on Earth everything's different, there's an emptiness

Oh I, I hope you're dancing in the sky
And I hope you're singing in the angels's choir
I hope the angels know what they have
I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived

So tell me what, do you do up in heaven?
Are your days filled with love and light?
is there music? Is there art and invention?
Tell me are you happy, are you more alive?

'Cause here on Earth it feels like everything good is missing since you left
And here on Earth everything's different, there's an emptiness

Oh I, I hope you're dancing in the sky
And I hope you're singing in the angels's choir
I hope the angels, know what they have
I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived
