Got a picture of your house
Your were standin' by the door
It's black and white and faded
And it's lookin' pretty worn
I see the factory that I've worked
Silhouetted in the back
The memories are gray but man, they're really comin' back
I don't need to be the king of the world
As long as I'm the hero of this little girl
Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say

How I loved the way you moved
The sparkle in your eyes
There's a color deep inside you like the blue suburban skies
When I come home late at night
And your in bed asleep
I wrap my arms around you
So I can feel you breath

I don't need to be a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan

Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
We'll find a way

Now the lights are going out
Along the boulevard
The memories come rushin' back and it makes it pretty hard
Like 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

I know were gonna find a way
Ohhh, heaven
Ohh, heaven
Heaven, it's not too far away
Ohhhh, yeahhhh
