  • Lyrics
  • Living life from day to day
    And reading books from page to page,
    I know life is just my stage
    And I wish I could, I said I would,
    I know I should do something good
    And my God, I fear I'm shedding tears,
    The colors change from year to year
    Around here

    And I said
    How do I get to Heaven from here,
    I wanna know
    How do I get to Heaven from here

    Holy Toledo, where does the time go
    My dreads are locked,
    My watch is stopped,
    My glass are full, my gun is half-cocked
    How do I redeem my sins
    Well, I sure hope
    St. Peter's gonna let me in Holy Toledo...

    Now I've said too much, I'm losing touch
    Step on the gas and off the clutch
    Oh, I'm gonna leave Toledo,
    Have no fear and time goes slow
    But I'm shifting gears

    And I said
    How do I get to Heaven from here,
    And I wanna know
    How do I get to Heaven from here

    Holy Toledo, where does the time go
    My dreads are locked,
    My watch is stopped,
    My glass are full, my gun is half-cocked
    How do I redeem my sins
    Well, I sure hope
    St. Peter's gonna let me in Holy Toledo...

    Said how do I get to Heaven from here,
    And I wanna know how in the hell
    Am I gonna to Heaven from here

    Holy Toledo, where does the time go
    My dreads are locked,
    My watch is stopped,
    My glass are full, my gun is half-cocked
    How do I redeem my sins
    I sure hope St. Peter's gonna let me in...

    Said how do I get to Heaven from here... Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
