Always walking straight home
Like the other good girls do
Careful what you wish for
It could never be like you

It's not the right thing baby
Bu t the right thing suits so few
Let's take the other road baby
Cause it looks so good on you

So hold on tight,
It's gonna be a wild wild ride
And tonight, you won't need your wings to fly
Cause angels got a lot to lose

So hang on tight,
I'm gonna make you come to life
And when your there,
You won't need to say your prayers
Cause heavens gonna wait for you

All your golden crosses
Hangin by a single thread
Remember what you are
And forget what the good book said

It's not the right thing baby
Bu t the right thing suits so few
Let's take the other road baby
Cause it looks so good on you

So hold on tight,
It's gonna be a wild wild ride
And tonight, you won't need your wings to fly
Cause angels got a lot to lose

So hang on tight,
I'm gonna make you come to life
And when your there,
You won't need to say your prayers
Cause heavens gonna wait for you

Only the good die young
How can it feel so real and be so wrong
Only the good die young

So hang on tight,
I'm gonna make you come to life
And when your there,
You won't need to say your prayers
Cause heavens gonna wait for you

So hold on tight,
It's gonna be a wild wild ride
And tonight, you won't need your wings to fly
Cause heavens gonna wait for you

Heavens gonna wait for you (x2)
Just a little bit longer (x2)
Heavens gonna wait for you
Just a little bit longer

Heavens gonna wait for you

    Almost died a few years ago I feel like I can connect to it. I was just a girl who lived like a normal life. I then got very sick and everyone said I was close to dying. I even thought I was going to die. It was scary. But it's Like a miracle happened and said I couldn't die yet. After I lived life carefully, always scared. And then I clued in I almost died. That means life is not promised. Live while your young and have fun and just live on the edge and do things because heaven will wait. You don't have to sit and pray every night to have faith. Just go out and live and do what makes you happy.

    I think this song is about a goody two shoes type girl who becomes very ill and starts dying. The guy who loves her wants to help her live every day like it's her last and when she recovers from illness, the lyrics heavens gonna wait for you means that she got better and isn't gonna die. Personally i like the way people use this with the hunger games as a reference to katniss winning the games.

    This is an amazing song and to me it tells us all that its ok to step away from the right path, the one chosen for us, the one that is considered good, to become something better a person willing to take chances abd live a little because as long as we respect ourselves heaven will wait
