No thanks, close this window
The seeming simplicity in children and what they say and think can be incredible. I had no idea what to do musically with the lyrics until I started watching the show LOST. The simple, strong, well spaced piano chords create longing and hope.
"How can I get to Heaven?"
A little man asks his Dad
"I'd like to touch the stars and
Gather the sun's rays in my hand
The father scratches his head
And has to look the other way
He says, "Why do you want to know?"
And then gently lays his head on down
"If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord
My soul to take....
Take me where?
We never say.
I just want to know in case He
Doesn't take me there
