I got lost out there in this world
Looking for a brand new way to fall down
It's no urprise that things have gotten worse
And I thank god tha he never let me down

But I didn't have to lie to myself for so long
I didn't have to let myself get so far gone
I didn't have to make the ones I love feel so alone
I didn't have to die to go to heaven
I just had to go home

While I was having the time of my life
I think my soul died a little every day
I always called to say I'm sorry
You said it's ok, but you should be
Through it all you never walked away

But I didn't have to lie to myself for so long
I didn't have to let myself get so far gone
I didn't have to make the ones I love feel so alone
I didn't have to die to go to heaven
I just had to go home
into the arms of an angel
Into the peace I left behind
All I had to do to save my own life
Was to look into your eyes

But I didn't have to lie to myself for so long
I didn't have to let myself get so far gone
I didn't have to make the ones I love feel so alone
I didn't have to die to go to heaven
But I didn't have to lie to myself for so long
I just had to go home
I just had to go home
I just had to go home

    I think ,every day that we can breathe, its just one reason to feel that here its heaven.. Its just an earthly place... A single place and i would bet everything that we have just what our world has!!! The beauty oceans, an only sky .. All you can see with you eyes.. Is heaven

    The place where we can find peace and where we'll be forgiven for all our mistakes and live in a wonderful place that we never saw like before with the people we love and for ever ever ever ..

    I listen to this song all the time, but it wasn't until I was told to find a song that relates to me for school that I realized how true it was. I always blame the ones I love when I'm upset and for everything that goes wrong in my life. I just feel this song seems exactly like my life. It reflects on my really well.
