Lyrics

Little Bits of Heaven

music and lyrics by Johnny Schaefer

I met up with a wise man
and I told him my life story
how I always seem to feel things in extremes
I'm either dancin' on a mountain top
or crawlin' through a valley
don't seem to get too much time in between
Now why is it that sometimes life goes easy,
and I just feel so happy day to day?
I taste a little bit of heaven and it frees me, yeah.
then all at once, the feelin' goes away
and he say
Chorus
You take the little bits of heaven
and you string the together
into memories of things you love so well
and then the little bits of heaven
will hold you together
as you struggle through the little bouts of hell
hey. hey , yeah, yeah

I asked "how 'm I gonna live a life of passion
when I also want to live a life of peace?"
and he said "Balance is the highest form of action, yeah,
but sometimes most difficult to achieve.
Watcha do?
Chorus
Bridge
Well, heaven is a state of mind
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
woah, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Well, whatcha look for, you will find
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
woah, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

And, so, my friend, the next time you're dejected
Frustrated, and devoid of all your dreams
just conjure up some happy memories you've protected, yeah
Then sing this song
an Acoustic Remedy
here we go...
Chorus
Spanish Chorus

Tomas tus trocitos de cielo
Y los haces recuerdos O
Cosas que te hagan sentir bien (muy bien)
Y asi tus trocitos de cielo te
sacan del abismo cuando sientes que te CAes dentro de el
El cielo esta en tu corazon
Busca y encontraras
no hay espacio, ni tiempo
hey. hey , yeah, yeah

Repeat Chorus and fade out
