Tracy Lawrence - Heaven For A While Lyrics




You know someone told me once
That angels don't exist
And that paradise was just a poor mans dream
Without hesitation
I can say he was mistaken
Cause I've wrapped my arms around celestial wings
But for reasons we don't know, some aren't meant to be here long,
And then one day the good lord calls them home

[Chorus:]
Now I may never find peace or fulfill some destiny
I may be cursed just to walk this earth alone
And I never will erase the memory of her gentle face
But I can go to the other side with a smile
Cause I knew heaven for a while

The other day I took a drive
To that place up on the hill
I brought flowers and I laid them on the stone
And I sat there for some time
With this runnin' through my mind
How much we take for granted till it's gone
Then I got back in my car and slowly drove away
Knowing she was in a better place

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]
The world turns and seasons change
And rivers keep on runnin' to the sea
Tears dry and hearts heal
And what is meant to be will always be

[Repeat Chorus]

    You know someone told me once that angels don't exist

    Without hesitation I can say he was mistaken
    Cause I've wrapped my arms around celestial wings

    But for reasons we don't know,
    Some aren't meant to be here long,
    And then one day the good lord calls them home

    Now I may never find peace or fulfill some destiny
    I may be cursed just to walk this earth alone
    And I never will erase the memory of her gentle face
    But I can go to the other side with a smile

    I may be cursed just to walk this earth alone
    And I never will erase the memory of her gentle face
    But I can go to the other side with a smile
    Cause I knew heaven,I knew heaven,I knew heaven
    for a while,for a while....

    i love this song Tracy it is a very pretty song it makes my smile & cry at the same time the reason why is it reminds me of my great niece the smiling part is seeing my great niece smile in pictures the sad part is that is the only way i am going to see her she passed away a few years or more ago from heart failure she wasn't even two years old i miss her every day

    I met Tracy when he and Tracy B. When a weekend show called fire on the swamp in FL 1994 or 95. I wanted to see Tracy so bad! I didn't make it back to meet him but my son did which at the time Tracy signed a poster that said
    Love Tracy
    Candie.
    I keep that poster with me when I moved. I no longer have the poster because a fire in my home.
    But the REALLY sad part of this is that my son who got it for me was killed in a car accident about for yrs ago:(.
    So after saying all that if anyone from Tracy group reads this?
    I WOULD LOVE TO MEET him in memory of my son.
    Thanks for all that reads this.
    If anyone can help me?. I think my email is on here
    Thanks so much and God Bless you
    Candie
