Chris Rea – Tell Me There's A Heaven lyrics

The little girl she said to me
What are these things that I can see
Each night when I come home from school
And mama calls me in for tea
Oh every night a baby dies
And every night a mama cries
What makes those men do what they do
To make that person black and blue
Grandpa says their happy now
They sit with God in paradise
With angels' wings and still somehow
It makes me feel like ice

Tell me there's a heaven
Tell me that it's true
Tell me there's a reason
Why I'm seeing what I do
Tell me there's a heaven
Where all those people go
Tell me they're all happy now
Papa tell me that it's so

So do I tell her that it's true
That there's a place for me and you
Where hungry children smile and say
We wouldn't have no other way
That every painful crack of bones
Is a step along the way
Every wrong done is a game plan
To that great and joyful day

And I'm looking at the father and the son
And I'm looking at the mother and the daughter
And I'm watching them in tears of pain
And I'm watching them suffer
Don't tell that little girl
Tell me
Tell me there's a heaven
Tell me that it's true
Tell me there's a reason
Why I'm seeing what I do

Tell me there's a heaven
Where all those people go
Tell me they're all happy now
Papa tell me that it's so

    I think it is about a child who sees images of domestic violence of children on the news, and is clearly upset, so that her grandfather reassures her. That it is all part of gods plan, and they are in a happier place, and wouldnt have it any other way, as they no longer have to suffer on earth.
    The childs father, despite having passed on the words of wisdom, yearns for the same paternal reassurance as he struggles to comprehend the inhumanities of other parents.
    Please note this is only my interpretation and may differ vastly from the mr rea's unbelievably emotive composition.
