Heaven Is A Lonely Place (Album Version)

Heaven Is A Lonely Place (Album Version)

John Mellencamp

Barry Barry, he's with Mary
Look like they could fly
Grandma's off her medicine
I think that I know why
People standing naked
Outside in the yard
Power ball slot machine
Looking for the winning card
Tryin' to get my mind straight now
It's a little bit narrow but I know somehow
Thou shalt not kill thou shalt not steal
But you know thou always will

Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Takin' 'em down
Board by board

Cheap vulgar innocence
Wears a wedding dress
Homophobic hypocrites
Scarin' us half to death
Journalistic lap dogs
Can't seem to find the truth
Crystal meth with the paymaster
Sippin' on a hundred proof
Ain't you so hip now

You sure look cool
Wonder what the price will be
For actin' like such a fool
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Takin' 'em down
Board by board

See the people cryin'
See the people cryin'
See the people cryin'
See the people cryin'

Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Takin' 'em down
Board by board

So I guess it'll never end
Brother hell enemies friends
The fire's burning out of control
In my soul tonight
There's just no hope for me
Might as well nail me to a tree
Here I am just another case
Who cannot see the light
I guess I can't take a hint
Of what was said and what was meant
Somehow we always come out blind
When it comes to our heart

Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Takin' 'em down
Board by board

See the people cryin'
See the people cryin'
See the people cryin'
See the people cryin'
