    Lyrics

    Phone rang, screen said caller ID 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 its 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 in London 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 twenty-four
    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
    It's makin' things appear to me so clearly
    Deep in the clouds
    Just lyin' back makin' the smoke disperse a ray
    Deep in the clouds
    It's makin' things appear to me so clearly
    Deep into clouds

    Your time
    Is a terrible to waste
    For it's
    Not one of the possessions that you can bring 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
    He gon see it

    The feeling just keeps on lifting me higher
    And its ever flowing it's, ever flowing
    When every thing, puts a smile on my face
    And I recognize the strong goal
    But I keep on going, I keep on going
    I keep on going on

    Hey mighty love
    Watching over me
    A smile, brilliant
    All over, constantly
    Warm, comforting
    Perfect, like nothing
    No hate, no confusion, no strain
    Simply peace, simply
    Simply, simply, simply

    No fear! Heaven is to me
    No fear of destruction
    Understanding who he is
    His name is Christ
    Heaven, heaven is to me
    Wisdom, understanding, knowledge

    Streets of gold and pearly gates
    Halos wings all dressed in white
    Angels sing and cymbals glare
    No one's rich no one's poor
    People dreaming they live free
    Making love while they in love
    Wonderful dream wake me when you're home

    Heaven, heaven is being pops
    Heaven is spending the day with your grandchildren
    Listenin' to they voices when and 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
