Wariner, Steve - Holes In The Floor Of Heaven Lyrics

One day shy of eight years old, my grandma passed away
I was a broken hearted little boy, blowing out that birthday cake
How I cried when the sky let go, with a cold and lonesome rain,
Mamma smiled, said don't be sad child, grandma's watching you today

Cause there's holes in the floor of heaven
And her tears are pouring down,
That's how you know she's watching,
Wishing she could be here now,
And sometimes if your lonely,
Just remember she can see,
There's holes in the floor of heaven,
And she's watching over you and me,

Seasons come, and seasons go, nothing stays the same
I grew up, fell in love, met a girl who took my name
Year by year, we made a life, in this sleepy little town
I thought we'd grow old together, Lord, I sure do miss her now

But there's holes in the floor of heaven,
And her tears are pouring down,
That's how I know she's watching,
Wishing she could be here now,
And sometimes when I'm lonely,
I remember she can see,
There's holes in the floor of heaven,
And she's, watching over you and me,

Well my little girl is twenty three, I walk her down the aisle
It's a shame her mom can't be here now, to see her lovely smile
They throw the rice, I catch her eye, as the rain starts coming down
She takes my hand, says daddy don't be sad,
Cause I know mamma's watching now

And there's holes in the floor of heaven,
And her tears are pouring down,
That's how you know she's watching,
Wishing she could be here now,
And sometimes when I'm lonely,
I remember she can see,
Yes, there's holes in the floor of heaven,
And she's, watching over you and me

Watching over you and me
Watching over you and me

  4. Jodi McDaniel

    I lost my dad when I was 3 I remember as he was leaving for work one of my sisters was begging my dad not to go he said daddy's got to go to work and he walked out the door and was heading to work as he was driving to work he ended up in a car accident and was hit head on by a drunk driver the EMTs tried for an hour to resuscitate him but they couldn't and when they got him to the hospital the coroner pronounced him dead at the doors of the emergency room. That was the day our lives changed

  5. DelGloTa

    Monday January 27 2020 will make 1 year since I lost my dad. Came back across this song at the right time. Cause God knows I need all the pick me up I can get...

  6. Travis Mullins

    I lost my grandma earlier this year in July, and it absolutely shattered me.. the woman helped raise me and lived with me for my whole life... I miss her terribly and this song brings back so many good memories and I can’t help but cry as well... Love you grandma

  7. LegenDusty

    This song has always hit hard ever since mid 90s when I lost my mom at only 5 years old.

    My grandmother passed away in Oct 10 , it still hard to pass her house , the home where her and papa lived at. Christmas and Thanksgiving won't be the same , I still see her and papa holding hands swinging on the porch swing , I'm sorry but that is a piece that will never get back agian !

  10. Rae Gibson

    This reminds me of Tonight I Wanna Cry by Keith Urban. That sound came out when my Grandpa was dying and all of these remind me of him. My Baba loved Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle. We played that song at my sister's wedding for the Dad and Daughter dance. My Baba was still alive for a few more years but I printed it out for her funeral two years ago along with a letter that I wrote to her. My Mom and sister each wrote a speech. At the end of the funeral we put all of them in this blue bag and put it with her in the coffin. It was comforting being able to see her one last time as it was open casket and she was wearing red her favorite color. The hardest by far was the grave side ceremony at the end. Kissed her casket and we walked back to the cars. I've only been to the cemetery a few times since but I still have trouble talking about her or driving by her house. I know it gets easier but it's still sad. I lost my other Grandma in December 2018. It's still surreal because sometimes it feels like I could still go and visit each of them like I used to. Praying for all of you and them today...

  11. hottforsixx

    This song has always made me cry. Even more so now since my grandma just passed.

  12. RuneThePageMaster

    I just lost my grandma three days ago and I heard this song the other day for the first time in a while and I just lost it. I’ll miss you Grandma Bobbi.

  13. conrailman

    Today as I post this, it marks 7 years since my grandma died in 2013 and when I got up that morning, I saw it was raining and thought immediately of this song and broke down crying. But I have lived the rest of this song as well. When I got married in April 2016, it rained on my wedding day and that's how I knew my late grandma and adopted mom were watching me that day and wishing they could be there to see it. Then two years ago in 2018, after my wife unexpectedly died, I played this song at her funeral and while it didn't rain, I saw a couple flower petals fall to the floor as if it were her sign letting me know she was watching that day. So yes I cry when I hear this song as I have basically lived out all 3 verses in one way or another.

  14. Erik Novak

  30. Andy King

    My grandma/momma passed away a few years ago.. Her and my papa raised me bc my daddy was a alcoholic... My papa passed away 3 years after my brother was killed.... My grandma I can remember use to cook and bake all the time. But when my papa and brother passed within a couple years, she stopped doin a lot of her cooking.... My papa was 63 yrs old when he passed. That was in 96... My grandma lived to be 84 so that tells you how many years she lived after her husband of 40 years passed away... When she passed I knew she was ready to see them again, bc thats all she talked about weeks up till she passed.... I will always love and miss you grandma😘😘😘

  36. memelord77_

    My grandma passed in a house fire and we recovered a note book that had this song in it as she said she wanted this to play at her funeral.... we found it after the funeral.

  37. Cody M

    The music video was directed by Michael Salomon, who directed Toby Keith and Sawyer Brown's music videos. The video consisted of Wariner singing in a living room, intercut with shadows portraying the song's storyline, and he sat throughout the whole time. During the last scene of the video, "holes in the floor of heaven" appear, each one giving off a blue light.

  38. Rachael Stephens

    Ok so my face is soaking wet. I think about my little sweet grandbabies. 😢😢😢
