Lyrics
Sometimes baby when you're really down
There just don't seem to be a ray of hope around
And everybody that you meet kinda wears a frown
It's cold and lonely in the heart of town
I've got to tell you all there

There's a place that's called heaven
Don't you ever forget
I once heard about a heaven, yeah
I'm gonna get there yet

Some days you laugh, some days you cry
Sometimes it feels like the world
Has passed you right by
But everybody's got to find
A peaceful place to hide
You oughta look until you look inside
And I think you'll find it.

There's a place that's called heaven
And I think that's kinda swell, whoa, whoa, yeah
If you don't believe in heaven, yeah
You ain't never been

They'll try to bring you down to their way
Of thinking, yeah
But don't you do it, no, no
Don't you let IT GET BY
A little voice inside will tell you
Exactly what you're gonna do
Don't feel blue, ooh, ooh, yeah

You don't have to go lookin' near of far
'Cause you can find happiness
Standing right where you are
Just open up the windows that are in your heart
And let the light shine then your life will start
We believe it's better

There's a place that's called heaven
It's filled with joy and peace, whoa, whoa, yeah
Once you get a look at heaven, yeah
You'll find a love that you seek
When all the world is fallin' down
You'll find a world
Filled with peace AND JOY AND LOVE
For every girl and boy
And all your troubles will cease

You know somebody said to keep on pushin'
'Cause there's a change that's got to come
She said, "Thank the Lord."
And everyday I thank you Lord
For all the stars and all the seas
And all the birds and all the bees.
