if you can't find heaven here

two brothers caught camping in the pourin’ rain,
got soaked to the bone when that storm came,
now they huddled up together for the rest of the night,
already forgot about that mornin’s fist fight,



they’ll protect each other through anything,
doesn’t brotherly love have a heavenly ring.

way too often we all lose sight,
of all of the beauty that is our lives,
step back for a second and it might seem clear,
that everything your needin’, lord it’s all right here.


it was Friday morning when she got the call,
now all her problems, lord they seem so small,
driving fourteen hours through the sleet and snow,
hoping to see daddy for’ god calls him home.

she hadn’t talked to her sister since they had that fight,
over that boy on homecoming night,
as the door swings open they meet in embrace,
as their tears got blended on each other’s face.



way too often we all lose sight,
of all of the beauty that is our lives,
step back for a second and it might seem clear,
that everything your needin’, lord it’s all right here.


he was sittin’ with molly on that ol’ porch swing,
his hands were shaking as he pulled out the ring,
she had waited so long for this day to get come,
he had cried when he told momma he had found the one.


way too often we all lose sight,
of all of the beauty that is our lives,
step back for a second and it might seem clear,
that everything your needin’, lord it’s all right here.


if you can’t find heaven in what you have,
then you mighta lost sight of the bigger path,
if you can’t find heaven in what’s surrounding you,
how you gonna find it when this life is through,

it takes a step back from that fast pace,
to see you’re surrounded by Amazing Grace.
