  • Got a picture of your house and you're standing by the door
    It's black and white and faded and it's looking pretty worn
    I see the factory that I worked silhouetted in the back
    The memories are gray but, man, they're really coming back
    I don't need to be the king of the world
    As long as I'm the hero of this little girl

    Heaven isn't too far away
    Closer to it every day
    No matter what your friends might say, we will find our way

    How I love the way you move and the sparkle in your eyes
    There's a color deep inside them like a blue suburban sky
    When I come home late at night and you're in bed asleep
    I wrap my arms around you so I can feel you breath
    I don't need to a superman
    As long as you will always be my biggest fan

    Heaven isn't too far away
    Closer to it every day
    No matter what your friends might say
    We'll find our way yeah

    Now the lights are going out, along the boulevard
    Memories come rushing back and it makes it pretty hard
    I've got nowhere left to go, no one really cares
    I don't know what to do but I'm never giving up on you

    Heaven isn't too far away
    Closer to it every day
    No matter what your friends might say, yeah

    Find our way
    Heaven, far away
    Heaven, far away
    Heaven, isn't too far away
    Is not far away
    Is not too far way
    Is not too far way
    Is not too far Writer/s: Eric Turner, Jani Lane, Jerry Dixon, Joseph Cagle, Steven Chamberlin

  • Dan Gillespy. from Courtenay Bc.A very nice beautiful power ballad that would be good for a slow dance.
  • Alex from ArizonaIt’s clearly about a guy singing to a girl about their daughter. “As long as I’m the hero of this little girl”.
  • Tj from SacramentoToo bad Jani actually ripped off that song from another singer/band back in the day when they had rehearsal space in the same place. Do the research on the lawsuit. Warrant settled, and got to keep the publishing rights in the end.
  • Dorothy Margaris from NyWhat happened to clothes from heaven video? All those great jackets with their names on them?
