Long Way From Heaven

 

Wandering streets with rain and light

Iím not feeling like myself tonight

Crossroads and signs I cannot read

Iím not sure what it is you think I need

 

Itís a city of ghosts where no one trusts

Itís a city of wings that turn to rust

And Iím wandering and I still canít find

These things I need to leave behind

 

Yeah, weíre a long, long, long way from Heaven

 

And twilight leaks through an open book

I know what youíre saying with every look

Danger dances in these half-lit rooms

Confusion, it reeks in these saloons

 

Hey, Lazarus, where have you been boy

Is death something you still enjoy

 

Weíre a long, long, long way from Heaven

 

The Lord he giveth and the Lord he take

Iíve broken laws that I couldnít face

Between the colors of your love and hate

Thereís a time to murder and a time to create

 

The din of despair and broken, drunken tongues

Who are these people weíve become

And I feel it, do you feel it too

Happiness always eluding you

 

Yeah, Iíll weave you a liarís blanket snug

And Iíll show you all Iíve learned from love.

 

Yeah, weíre a long, long, long way

Such a long, long, long way

Such a long, long, long way to Heaven
