I'll Build A Stairway To Paradise

This song is by Rufus Wainwright and appears on the movie soundtrack The Aviator (2004) and on the box set House of Rufus (2011).

All you preachers who delight
In panning the dancing teachers
Let me tell you there are a lot
Of features of the dance that carry you
Through the gates of Heaven

It's madness to be always
Sitting around in sadness
When you could be learning
The steps of gladness
You'll be happy when
You can do just six or seven

Begin today, you'll find it's nice
The quickest way to Paradise
When you practice, here's the thing
To do, simply say as you go

I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step every day
I'm going to get there at any price
Stand aside, I'm on my way

I've got the blues and up above it's so fair
Shoes, go on and carry me there
I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step every day

I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step every day
I'm going to get there at any price
Stand aside, I'm on my way

I've got the blues and up above it's so fair
Shoes, go on and carry me there
I'll build a stairway to Paradise
With a new step every day
