Lyrics

The Way Back To Heaven

There?s a journey you make when it?s time to be born
And you leave a safe darkness that none of us recall
You move from the womb to the arms of the world
And you learn how to cry, how to laugh, how to fall

There?s the first day you dress yourself and tie your own shoes
And your parents drop you off for your first day at school
You look for a friendly face and try not show you?re scared
And you learn how to write your name and you learn the Golden Rule, And you learn that Golden Rule

chorus
We all come to the world so helpless and tender
Out minds a blank slate, our bodies fragile and small
And spend our whole lives trying to remember
The way back to heaven, wondering if it?s there at all,

There?s a passage you make when it?s time to leave home
Some people leave too soon and some never really do
Some people break the rules and some just play the fool
Some never see the light and some let it just shine through
Just shine through
Some people live their lives like it was all a game
Others give up all their dreams but go on living just the same
Some people choose to think that nothing matters in the end
While others spend their whole lives just looking for a friend
Some people see only one road out of town
Some people lose themselves and some are never found
