Show Me Heaven Lyrics

There's a moment in the mornings when the birds refuse
to sing
When the wind blows in it's cargo and the eyes begin to
sting
And you can't see these Elysian Fields for the bodies
on the ground
So you grope the dead for souvenirs that are lying all
around

Lay your head down on my pillow and show me heaven
Lay your head down on my pillow and show me heaven

I killed a little boy today; I put a bayonet in his
breast
They said I was a hero and pinned a medal on my chest
But I will not kill another for now I know it to be
wrong
That young man had a mother and for her I must be
strong

So lift your skirt up a little higher and show me
heaven
Lift your skirt up a little higher and show me heaven

In the morning they'll be waiting and before the day is
done
I will make my peace with Jesus, I will walk toward the
sun
And they'll take me to the bloody war, where the ones
before me fell
And I'll go to meet my old friends, yes and my enemies
as well

So put your sweet lips against my body and show me
heaven
Put your sweet lips against my body and show me heaven

Show me heaven, show me heaven
Show me heaven, show me heaven.
