HEAVEN'S REMAINS

HEAVEN'S REMAINS
Songwriter/Artist: Frank Trainor

I WAS AMBITIOUS
MY BLOOD WAS COLD WATER
MY BROW POURED WITH SWEAT WHEN IT RAINED
THE HEAT THAT CAME DOWN ON MY HEAD NEVER BURNED
LIKE MY PASSION FOR HEAVEN'S REMAINS

I LIVED IN A MANSION
DOWN SOUTH BY THE BEACHES
WHERE THE MONEY TAKES DIFFERENT NAMES
A PORSCHE IN THE DRIVE AND A PORCH WITH A SIGN
THAT SAID "WELCOME TO HEAVEN'S REMAINS"

WHERE THERE'S NOTHIN' TO LOSE
AND NOTHIN' TO GAIN
THERE'S NOTHIN' AT ALL
BUT A MOURNFUL REFRAIN
PARADISE IS A SONG
PRIDE ACHES TO RECALL
EVERY DREAM OF ITS OWN
A FAR CRY FROM HOME
HEAVEN'S REMAINS

WHEN I RETURN
TO THE ASHES AND MUD
WHEN THE DUST COMES TO SLEEP IN MY VEINS
THERE SHOULD BE A QUOTE ON MY TOMBSTONE ENGRAVED
THAT SAYS "GOOD-BY TO HEAVEN'S REMAINS"

WHERE THERE'S NOTHIN' TO LOSE
AND NOTHIN' TO GAIN
THERE'S NOTHIN' AT ALL
BUT A MOURNFUL REFRAIN
PARADISE IS A SONG
PRIDE ACHES TO RECALL
EVERY DREAM OF ITS OWN
A FAR CRY FROM HOME
HERE IN HEAVEN'S REMAINS
