Story

Written in the late '90s, "Heaven" is one of the most requested songs of Bar's. This version is dedicated to Abigail Thomas. It was -re-recorded in late 2014 with strings arranged by Dave Hanson.

Personal note from Bar: I think this is my best work to date. I love the arrangement, the vocal, the players (woohoo!) and I loved working with Dave Cook recording and mixing. Highly recommended from me to you.

Years ago I remember holding hands                                                 

Running around and falling down                                                      

In circles then, the sun was shining everywhere

I remember my hand in your hand

And then I find that I remember holding you

In the grass in the meadow

And here I am, I’m on my knees

 

Looking to heaven so far away

Searching for my way

 

In love with you

The sun was shining down on my

I remember just lying there

The sky was turning like a movie screen

Where the clouds roll in fast

And here I am I’m on my knees again

 

Looking for heaven, far, far away

So far that I can’t find my way

 

When I am here

Roses are red, a violet’s blue

When I’m in love with you

When I am here

Ashes to ashes

We all fall down

And we get up again

We all get up

 

I’m walking all the way to heaven

Heaven here I come

I’m almost all the way to heaven

Heaven turned away

 

Why am I here?

Where roses are red and black

And no violet’s blue when I’m in love with you

Why am I here?

Ashes to ashes

We all fall down

And we get up again

We all get up
