  • Well, it’s been real nice living way up here
    In paradise, over the atmosphere
    But I can’t stay long, gotta make my way
    I’m leaving Heaven today

    You see the world is dark and it needs a light
    I’m gonna hang a star in the eastern sky
    So everybody’s gonna know where I touch down
    I’m leaving Heaven right now

    I’m gonna walk around that broken Earth
    Trading in these streets of gold
    So if you ever wonder how much you’re worth
    You should know
    That you’re the reason why I’m leaving Heaven

    Ain’t gonna be no kingdom, ain’t gonna be no crown
    Just a little old manger, in a little old town
    But it’ll do just fine for this humble King
    I’m leaving Heaven let all the angels sing

    I’m gonna walk around that broken Earth
    Trading in these streets of gold
    So if you ever wonder how much you’re worth
    You should know
    You’re the reason why I’m leaving Heaven

    And when my time comes to an end
    I’ll lay down my life like a truest friend
    And when I get back home, I’m gonna make some room
    So, don’t you worry, ‘cause I’m coming back for you

    And you will say goodbye to that broken Earth
    You’re gonna walk on streets of gold
    And if you ever wonder what my love is worth
    Well you should know
    That I’m the reason you’ll be seeing Heaven
    Oh, you’re the reason why I’m leaving Heaven
