Words & Music by Henry Gross
The Lyrics
I KNOW YOU'RE WATCHING EVERYTHING I DO
AND HEARING EVERYTHING I SAY
AND THAT SOMEDAY I'M GONNA BE WITH YOU
IF I DON'T GET LOST ALONG THE WAY

I GET A FEELING EVERY NOW AND THEN
THAT TELLS ME YOU’RE AROUND AGAIN
I SEE THE SIGNS EVERYWHERE I GO
THAT ONLY YOU AND I WOULD KNOW

AND MY EYES ARE GOING BLIND
SEARCHING‘TILL I LOSE MY MIND
AND ALL I SEE ARE MOUNTAINS I’VE GOT TO CLIMB

HEAVEN SEEMS SO FAR
BUT THAT’S WHERE I KNOW YOU ARE
IT’S ONLY JUST BEYOND THE STARS
BUT HEAVEN SEEMS SO FAR AWAY

YOU ALWAYS SAID THAT YOU’D BE THERE FOR ME
AND SOMETHING TELLS ME NOTHING’S CHANGED
BUT JUST THE SAME I GET DOWN ON MY KNEES
AND PRAY I’LL SEE YOUR SMILE AGAIN

WITH FULL FAITH I TAKE A LEAP
ACROSS RIVERS WIDE AND VALLEYS DEEP
‘CAUSE I’VE GOT MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP

CHORUS

AND IF I DIE FROM THIS HEARTBREAK
I PRAY THE LORD MY SOUL TO TAKE
AND KEEP IT NEXT TO YOURS FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE

CHORUS

HEAVEN SEEMS SO FAR AWAY
