Brad Paisley – When I Get Where I'm Going lyrics

(Feat. Dolly Parton)

When I get where I'm going
On the far side off the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm goin
There'll be only happy tears
I will she'd the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

Yeah when I get where I'm goin
There'll be only happy tears
I will she'd the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm goin
Oh When I get where I'm goin
There'll be only happy tears
Hallelujah
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going

    My meaning to "when i get where i'm going" is the loss of a loved one and how they don't want the family to cry for them but to be happy that they are no longer on earth suffering to survive through the toubles and obstacles of everyday life. This song to me, portrays the feeling that we'll get when and if we all go to heaven to see our wonderful and beautiful makers face. To me, this song is just a glance into what its going to be like when we reach that far side of the sky.

    The writers are saying that they know where they will go when they leave this life. To heaven. It will be a place of only happiness, and they will love, and without doubt, be, without fear. (we) I will have nothing to worry about, so don't worry about me when I am gone. Their troubles are over, and you are left to carry on.
    I have alot left to do, but when I get to heaven. Don't worry about me then.
