04. Leaving Heaven (Feat. Vince Gill)

The Heart of Christmas
by Matthew West



 

Well, itís been real nice living way up here / In paradise, over
the atmosphere / But I canít stay long, gotta make my way / Iím
leaving Heaven today // You see the world is dark and it needs a
light / So, Iím gonna hang a star in the eastern sky / So everybodyís
gonna know where I touch down / Iím leaving Heaven right now //
Iím gonna walk around that broken Earth / Trading in these streets
of gold / So if you ever wonder how much youíre worth / You should
know / Youíre the reason why Iím leaving Heaven // Ainít gonna be
no kingdom, ainít gonna be no crown / Just a little old manger, in a
little old town / But itíll do just fine for this humble King / Iím leaving
Heaven let all the angels sing // And soon My time will come to an
end // Iíll lay down my life like a truest friend / And when I get back
home, Iím gonna make some room / So, donít you worry, Ďcause Iím
coming back for you // And you will say goodbye to that broken
Earth / Youíre gonna walk on streets of gold / So if you ever wonder
what My love is worth / You should know / Iím the reason youíll be
seeing Heaven / Oh, youíre the reason why Iím leaving Heaven
