Lyrics

 
It's a lonely road to heaven
when you're just this side of hell
and the darkness of the night time hides your fear
the dreams cry of forever
the emptiness stares  back
the innocence of youth forever lost
you've been here in this silent room
so many nights before
you know the dreams will come
they always do
you beg the Lord's forgiveness
for the cruel heart of man
you pray the scars you bear
will someday  heal
so you close your eyes   pretend you can not feel
and the lonely road to heaven rises up     just this side of hell
How many nights  you've lain awake
and prayed there'd be a day
the empty pain you hold and cannot share
would be set free one magic morn
   darkness cast away
light would fill    your empty heart once more
until then you'll close your eyes
no one will ever know
the dark place        your heart goes to each night
you beg the Lords forgiveness
for the cruel heart of man
you pray the scars you bear
will someday heal
 you close your eyes   pretend you can not feel
and the lonely road to heaven rises up    just this side of hell
