A Long Way From Heaven

Michael McDermott

 wandering streets with rain and light
i'm not feeling like myself tonight                
 crossroads and signs we cannot read
 i'm not sure what it is you think i need                          
 its a city of ghosts where no one trusts
 its a city of wings that turn to rust                     
 i'm turning and i still can't find
these things i need to leave behind
yeah we're a long, long, long way from heaven            

twilight leaks through and open book
i know what your saying with every look
danger dances in these half lit rooms
confusion reeks in these saloons
hey Lazarus where have you been boy
is death something you still enjoy?
you're a long, long, long way from heaven

the lord he giveth and the lord he take              
i've broken laws that i couldn't face             
between the colors of your love and hate                
its a time to murder and a time to create            

the din of despair and broken drunken tongues
who are these people we've become
i feel it do you feel it to...happiness always eluding you
i'll weave you a liars blanket, snug
and show you what i've learned from love
yeah we're a long, long, long way
such a long, long, long way
such a long, long long way from heaven
