Heaven – Song Lyric Sunday – Photo IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 9/9/18

***

Today for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt word ‘photo or photograph’. I would add picture to that, too, as lots of us just say we’re taking a picture with our camera.

Thanks, Helen!

This song is the first one I thought of. It’s one of my favorites from this group. I liked all their songs, and this one I pretty much could, and can sing all the lyrics without looking, since I listened to it so much back then. The song is telling a story of looking at a faded photograph, and all the memories that it brings back, of better days.

I was sad to hear of the passing of Jani Lane in 2011. He had a wonderful voice, and songwriting abilities. He, and his band, Warrant, were popular in the ‘glam metal’ genre. It would have been great to see how they evolved in later years, had it not been for his struggle with alcohol and drugs.

“Heaven”, by Warrant, was released as a single from the album, “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich”, in 1988. It was written by Jani Lane, and is on the Columbia label.

I’ve got a picture of your house
And you`re standing by the door
It`s black and white and faded
And it`s looking pretty worn

See the factory that I worked
Silhouetted in the back
The memories are gray
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

Heaven isn`t too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
We`ll find a way

How I love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There`s a color deep inside them
Like a blue surburban sky

When I come home late at night
And you`re in bed asleep
I wrap my arms around you
So I can feel you breathe
I don`t need to be a superman, ah ah
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 rushing back
And it 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

Heaven isn`t too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
Yeah, we`re gonna find a way

Heaven
Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh
Heaven
Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh oh

Heaven
It`s not too far away
Eh yeah
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
