Hedley – Heaven's Gonna Wait lyrics

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

    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.

    It's about a girl who has always been conservitive and has never done anything out side the box. She is living how people have told her instead of doing what she feels is right. Now she is taking the "other road" with someone who is showing her another side of life. The song is about doing something that she wants to do but doesn't think would be right. The speaker of the song is saying, do what you want and everything will be fine, because you only live once and you can be perfect when you go to heaven.
