  • Vamonos!

    Save me from this prison
    Lord, help me get away
    Cause only you can save me now from this misery
    I've been lost in my own place, and I'm gettin' weary
    How far is heaven?
    And I know that I need to change my ways of livin'
    How far is heaven?
    Lord, can you tell me

    I've been locked up way too long in this crazy world
    How far is heaven?
    And I just keep on prayin', Lord, and just keep on livin'
    How far is heaven?
    Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?
    How far is heaven? (Cause I just gotta to show some faith, yeah)
    How far is heaven? (Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?)

    Tu que estas en alto cielo
    Echame tu bendicion

    Cause I know there's a better place than this place I'm living
    How far is heaven?
    So I just got to have some faith and just keep on giving
    How far is heaven? (Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?)
    How far is heaven? (Cause I just got to know how far, yeah)
    How far is heaven? (Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?)
    How far is heaven? (Cause I just gotta know how far)
    I just want to know how far Writer/s: HENRY GARZA, JOEY GARZA, RINGO GARZA

  • Kelly Collier from Whitmire, ScI love the song, and l love the singers. It is a very touching song. Much love sent ya'lls way. Thank You!!!!
  • Jesse from Dallas, TxWhen this song is performed in concert, the whole place just comes apart. Such a great feel-good song to jam out to, and such a great message too. Orale!
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOMG! Love these people! FINALLY, true talent! lol I love this!
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkThis is a perfect song to close any memorial service. It's hopeful in the face of despair. I picked it for child-loss memorial service and later found out that it was written for a SIDS baby.
  • Jake from Columbia City, InGreat Song. It's horrible that he lost his son that way. I'd be asking the same question...
  • Robert from Houston, TxLos Lonely Boys (Henry, Jojo and Ringo) were a little surprised that this song got the most airplay of all the songs on their first album and was their "breakthrough" hit. They felt they had a better shot with "Real Emotions" or the blistering "Crazy Dream." They attribute their success to "The Man Upstairs."
  • David from Port Saint Lucie, FlThe Christian group Salvadore also has a version of this song.
  • Gary from Indianapolis, InI feel for the lead singer of the song. I know exactly how he feels. I lost my seven year old son to Leukemia last April. I felt the same way. How far is Heaven? I don't believe there is any pain greater than losing a child.
  • Brandon from Peoria, IlOf all the songs that i have listened to on the radio, this song has gotten the most play on many different stations. I have heard Heaven on two country stations, a lite rock station, a modern mix station, AND a smooth jazz station. It's such an amazing tune that you can't place the genre, which in my opinion makes this song one-of-a-kind. I haven't heard anything else from LLB, but i am sure they all have a simmilar sound. Excellent song.
  • John from Fort Worth, TxI have been wrapped up in this song since I first heard it. I don't hear it too often though. Tonight I listened to the lyrics more closely and I'm happy to have this wonderful site where I have learned some valuable information. Staci's songfact about the inspiration for the song was heartbreaking.

  • Mary from San Jose, Cai listen to The Los Lonely boys, i like the way they mix up the music with a little spanish and english. Heaven is my favorite song of theirs and it's hard to explain why, only that i feel locked up sometimes and want to be in a better place.
  • Dennis from Anchorage, AkThey sound to me like a nice blend of Santana and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Hope they can make it stick.
  • Emory from Suwanee, Gaone of my fave songs EVER!
  • James from Sarasota, FlThey're not really following Santana's footsteps too much. They said in an interview that they want to be the first Mexican family-oriented country stars.
  • Charlie from Thomaston, Cti kinda like the los lonely boys there pretty good following santana's footsteps!
