I've got a picture of your house
And you're standing by the door
It's black and white and faded,
It's looking pretty worn.
See the factory that I worked
Silhouetted in the back.
Memories are grey, but man they're really coming back.
I don't need to be the king of the world
As long as I'm the hero of this little girl
Chorus:
Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it everyday
And no matter what your friends might say

How I love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There's a color deep inside them like a blue suburban sky
When I come home late at night
And you're in bed asleep
Now I wrap my arms around you so I can feel you breathe

I don't need to be a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan
Chorus:
Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it everyday
And no matter what your friends might say
We'll find our way
Now the lights are going out,
Along the boulevard
Memories come rushing back and makes it pretty hard
I've got nowhere left to go
And no one really cares
I don't know what to do
But I'm never giving up on you

    This song always brings a smile to my face, when I hear it I can see my mom and me singing it in my car that one hot summer day while driving around. She passed away almost a year ago now so hearing this song means so much to me now more than ever, thank you!
