Leaning on Heaven

Story Behind The Song

This is an autobiographical song- lyrics are by award-winning 2016 Indie Artist of the Year, DeDe Wedekind from her Album of the Year: Dream of You. It's quite a unique song about the frustrations of being young, wild and searching for love. Being restless, and chasing love, but not really knowing what real love is, how to find it, or how to hold on to it, and finally asking for a little help from above...

Song Description

DeDe wanted to create a song with an 80's rock feel similar to Bon Jovi or Journey, two of her favorite groups growing up. The result is this unique song about the frustrations of being young and wild and searching for love. Being restless, and chasing love, but never holding on to it and going a long ways down out of control in a downward spiral. Never really being able to recognize real love or how to find it, and not being able to hold on to it. But finally meeting your "angel", then asking for, and getting a little help from "above"...

Lyrics

LEANING on HEAVEN Lyrics by D. Wedekind, melody by K. DeClue & Wedekind Copyright 2015 - Driving Rock

V 1: Feels like I'm headin' nowhere,
But I'm everywhere at once,
Been reachin' for something
But I don't know what I want.

Well I'm tired of running
Searching for what I just don't know,
But time it's a rolling stone and,
I just don't wanna let it, just don't wanna let it go...

Chorus: My way's, always been to
Run away, then chase you
A long ways down...
A long ways down

Never drink, just taste it,
Hold love close, then waste it
I'm falling down
A long ways down...

V2: Now I'm leaning on Heaven,
Didn't know it'd be like this
Only your love can save me...
Baby, give me just one kiss.

And I'm leaning on heaven
Had it all, but let you slip away,
Lord knows I need you now and
Just don't wanna let you, just don't wanna let you go,

Chorus: My way's, always been to
Run away, then chase you
A long ways down..
A long ways down

Never drink, just taste it,
Hold love close, then waste it
I'm falling down
A long ways down...

Bridge: Oh I need that angel
Need some heaven above,
Finally let it all go
And I'm learning how to love...

Instrumental & Guitar Solo (16 measures)

Chorus: My way's, always been to
Run away, then chase you
A long ways down
Goin' a long ways down...

Never drink, just taste it,
Hold love close, and waste it
I'm falling down
A long ways down...
And I'm leaning on Heaven

Very well built song with a great beat, as well as instrumentation and vocals. Really good guitar solo.
