Toni Childs – Heaven's Gate lyrics

A man I met in my youth
Came to me in the light of truth
A beautiful dream that was
Till he died one rainy fall
There I was a child bride
Widowed at ninteen, defied
Never would I let him go
Go to the place that heaven knows

On the evening of his death
My shoulders felt a brushing breath
Cold were his hands on my breast
The man that I loved and put to rest
He came to me and held me close
We danced til dawn in the early snow
There I felt him cry and cry
"i'll never leave, leave your side"

Oh the madness
This town thinks I'm mad
Sixty years, has it been a dream
This man I'm haunted by, I see

I'm eighty years and on my bed
Awaiting death, that final breath
He sits by and looks to me
"soon you will come and be with me"
Now I feel all warm inside
As I leave this mortal body behind
Seems it is eternal's way
We're waltzing into heaven's gate
