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

    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.

    i just took noticed of this song being the second time i listen to it. It found at a point of my life that i am actualy find who i am and what i am supose to do in life after about 11 years of walking blidling and stubling onto my loved ones blaming them for all the bad in my life. But all i realy had to do was "go home" and tel them what i wanted from them , my self and life and ask for their help.

    OMG, I lost my son 3 yaers ago, he struggled with drugs and acohol for many years, never really felt he fit in this world and went down just like this song. I play this CD all the time and each time I hear Heaven it makes me cry, it sounds like this song was written for him. RIP Nathan
