View from Heaven

Album: Ocean Avenue (2003)
  • I'm just so tired
    Won't you sing me to sleep
    And fly through my dreams
    So I can hitch a ride with you tonight

    And get away from this place
    Have a new name and face
    I just ain't the same with out you in my life

    Late night drives
    All alone in my car
    I can't help but start
    Singing lines from all our favorite songs

    And melodies in the air
    Singing â??life just ain't fairâ??
    Sometimes I still just can't believe you're gone

    And I'm sure the view from heaven
    Beats the hell out of mine here
    And if we all believe in heaven
    Maybe we'll make it through one more year
    Down here

    Feel your fire
    When it's cold in my heart
    And things sort of start
    Reminding me of my last night with you

    I only need one more day
    Just one more chance to say
    I wish that I had gone up with you too

    And I'm sure the view from heaven
    Beats the hell out of mine here
    And if we all believe in heaven
    Maybe we'll make it through one more year
    Down here

    You won't be coming back
    And I didn't get to say good bye
    (good bye)
    And I really wish I got to say
    Good bye

    And I'm sure the view from heaven
    Beats the hell out of mine here
    And if we all believe in heaven
    Maybe we'll make it through one more year

    I hope that all is well in heaven
    (I'll be singing in heaven?)
    'Cause it's all shot to hell down here
    (We need you here)
    I know that I'll find you in heaven
    (Singing in heaven)
    'Cause I'm so lost with out you
    Down here

    You won't be coming back
    And I didn't get to say good bye
    I really wish I got to say good bye Writer/s: BENJAMIN ERIC HARPER, LONGINEU WARREN III PARSONS, PETER MICHAEL MOSELY, SEAN MICHAEL WELLMAN-MACKIN, WILLIAM RYAN KEY
