Common – Heaven Somewhere lyrics

Common (talking)

Phone rang, screen said caller I'd said blocked,

But for some reason I decided to answer it.
On the other end was a french accent.

He told me we needed to rap quick,

Cause he had did some bad shit,

And would be gone for years, spending these last two days,

With his momma and his kids

When he spoke I wasn't trying to hear it, cause

I knew he was a real good person,

And this didn't seem like it was in his spirit.

He couldn't believe as much as I couldn't, what he done.

He said now it's time for him to turn himself in.

No longer could he run, from life, from God.
Start thinkin, why is doing right is so hard.

I got back to him when we was inlondon discussin the new testament

And how our lives related to it, and how we could make the best of it.

My voice became destined, so I asked him why you gotta go.

He said you know turn to Matthew 24

He said no one knows the hour, nor do they know the day,

But the kingdom is near, don't let anything lead you to stray.

As long as God is with you, everything will be okay.

So right about then, we decided to pray.

Just lyin back makin the smoke disperse a ray....

Deep into clouds (deep into clouds)

It's makin things appear to me so clearly....

Deep in the clouds (deep in the clouds)

Just lyin back makin the smoke disperse a ray...

Deep in the clouds (deep in the clouds)

It's makin things appear to me so clearly...

Deep into clouds (yeah,)


Your time

Is a terrible to waste!!!

For it's

Not one of the... Possesions that you can brang to space (yeah, it don't matter)

Its a challenge,

But the chance of seeing, is quite a dream to chase (yes it is)

I hope

I remind God of him when he sees my face (yeah)

He gon see it!


(keeps on)

The feeling just keeps on lifting me higher (ever)
And it's everflowing it's, everflowing

(keeps on)
When every thing, puts a smile on my face(ever-flowing, ever-flowing)

And I recognize the strong goal
But I keep on going, I keep on going (he keeps on going.... In the background)

I keep on going on!!
(he keeps on going echo)

Papa Lynn (talkin)

Heaven, heaven is being pops

Heaven is spending the day with your grandchildren

Listenin to they voices whenand they laughing and play

And then at the end of the day we hug we kiss and slowly they walk away

And then suddenly they turn and rush back to me and hug me round the knees
Yeah, that's heaven to me
