You can see it in the eyes of a dying man... It's like there's something there he can't comprehend. Call it fear or uncertainty, there's always this lingering question about eternity. Can't help but think about... where am I going when it's said and done? Or is there anything after life under the sun? So I slip away in my thoughts, I think about my rights and my wrongs and I realize this life is just a breath. 'Cause time is shorter than I know but somewhere deep inside I just can't wait to go...
I'll lift this veil from my eyes and I'll fly away... I've waited all of my life for this day. When I step my dirty feet through the pearly gates, and I finally see my best Friend face to face... I'm in Heaven
I start walking down the streets of gold, in a moment surrounded by everyone I've ever known... I can't help but notice there's a perfect smile on every face, shouts of joy that call my name... overwhelmed by a peace that I can't describe. So I slip away in my thoughts, I think about the world that I lost and I realize the world that lays ahead... There's no more crying, no more pain, no more death or suffering 'cause all my sin and all my shame has finally passed away
