Heaven Somewhere - Common feat. Omar Lye-Fook, CeeLo Green, Bilal, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige & Erykah Badu

Phone rang, screen said caller ID blocked
But for some reason I decided to answer it
On the other end was a French accent
He told me we needed to rap quick
Cause he had did some bad shit
And would be gone for years, spending these last two days
With his mom and his kid
When he spoke I wasn't trying to hear it
'Cause I knew he was a real good person
And this didn't seem like it was in his spirit
He couldn't believe as much as I couldn't, what he had done
He said now its time for him to turn himself in
For no longer could he run, from life, from God
Start thinkin', why is doing right so hard
I thought back to him when we was in London discussin' the new testament
And how our lives related to it, and how we could make the best of it
My voice became desperate, so I asked him why you gotta go
He said you know turn to Matthew twenty-four
He said no one knows the hour, nor do they know the day
But the kingdom is near, don't let anything lead you astray
As long as God is with me, everything will be okay
So right about then, we decided to pray

Just lyin' back makin' the smoke disperse away
Deep into clouds
It's makin' things appear to me so clearly
Deep in the clouds
Just lyin' back makin' the smoke disperse away
Deep in the clouds
It's makin' things appear to me so clearly

Deep into clouds

Your time
Is a terrible thing to waste
For it's
Not one of the possessions that you can bring to space
It don't matter
It's a challenge
But the chance of seeing, is quite a dream to chase - yes it is
I hope

I remind God of him when he sees my face
He gon see it

The feeling just keeps on lifting me higher
And it's ever flowing, it's ever flowing
When every thing, puts a smile on my face

And I recognize the strong goal
But I keep on going, I keep on going
I keep on going on

Oh mighty love
Watching over me
A smile, brilliant
All over, constantly
Warm, comforting

Perfect, like nothing
No hate, no confusion, no strain
Simply peace, simply
Simply, simply, simply

No fear! Heaven is to me

No fear of destruction
Understanding who he is
His name is Christ
Heaven, heaven is to me
Wisdom, understanding, knowledge

Streets of gold and pearly gates

Halos wings all dressed in white
Angels sing and cymbals glare
No one's rich, no one's poor
People dreaming they live free
Making love while they in love
Wonderful dream wake me when you're home

Heaven, heaven is being pops
Heaven is spending the day with your grandchildren
Listenin' to they voices in laughter and play
And then at the end of the day, we hug, we kiss and slowly they walk away
And then suddenly they turn and rush back to me and hug me round the knees
Yeah, that's heaven to me
