Heaven

  • Eh-oh oh oh, eh-oh oh oh

    I'm underneath it all tonight
    Out my window there's a million lights
    Thousand hearts feeling just like me
    Man, it feels like Heaven out here in the street
    I know I got a lot to learn
    Breaking bottles only left me hurt
    Play with fire 'til I burn myself
    Don't you know that love will bring us somewhere else?

    So you take the left, I'll take the right
    Under arrest, we're under fire
    Oh oh oh oh
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in
    You take the low, I'll take the high
    You lock the gate, I hear the quiet
    Everybody got a problem with the way I live
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in

    Maybe I should take my time
    And build this life by my own design
    With no direction that is in between
    Everything I love and everything I need
    So bring it back, all I want is understanding
    To live my life the way that I planned it
    Wouldn't change a thing
    Man, it feels like Heaven underneath my feet

    So you take the left, I'll take the right
    Under arrest, we're under fire
    Oh oh oh oh
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in
    You take the low, I'll take the high
    You lock the gate, I hear the quiet
    Everybody got a problem with the way I live
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in

    So raise 'em up, raise 'em up
    All I ever wanted was a shot at your love
    I know, and I believe
    Everything we got is everything we need
    Oh, love will get you higher
    I set my heart on fire
    I know, it's what you see
    Don't wanna go to Heaven if they don't want me

    'Cause I'm no criminal
    I'm not your enemy
    All I have is life
    And I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in

    So you take the left, I'll take the right
    Under arrest, we're under fire
    Oh oh oh oh
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in
    You take the low, I'll take the high
    You lock the gate, I hear the quiet
    Everybody got a problem with the way I live
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in

    Oh, yeah, raise 'em up, raise 'em up
    Everything you wanted is inside your cup
    Drink up
    Love will get you higher
    Oh, oh, all that your rhythm needs
    I never met no criminal
    And in the end I'll do it again
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in

    Oh, I'm not a criminal
    Yeah, I'm no enemy
    It's just the way I live
    I don't wanna go to Heaven if I can't get in Writer/s: MARC ANDREW ROBERGE, RYAN BAHARLOO, DEREK A E FUHRMANN, GREGG WATTENBERG
