lyrics

Heaven

And when I get to Heaven, I'll dance amongst the stars
And dust from magic moonbeams will cover up my scars
And when I get to heaven, I'll see who really cares
I'll log on Jesus' facebook and count the likes and shares

I'll look down on my service, and watch the teardrops fall
And listen as the preacher says, there was no need to this at all
And then my guardian angel will soothe and comfort me
When I get to heaven, that's how it's gonna be

But if you're looking for a sign, maybe this is it
If you're looking for a sign, maybe this is it
This is it, this is it....

But what is there's no heaven, and everything is black
And even if I wanted to, well there's just no going back
And what if there's no heaven, and living is the key
And all these tribulations are sent to strengthen me

And those who persecute me, a week or two from now
Will whisper of that poor strange kid
Who would have done it anyhow
And there's no gaurdian angel to meet me at the gate
Well if there is a heaven maybe heaven can wait

But if you're looking for a sign, maybe this is it
If you're looking for a sign, maybe this is it
This is it, this is it, this is it......
