Tears In Heaven Lyrics - Eric Clapton

Review The Song (50)

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I'll find my way
Through night and day,
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,
There's peace I'm sure,
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

I feel for you | Reviewer: someone | 4/8/13


I just wanna say I feel for you all guys.
You're so strong and brave. I don't know I could if I were in your shoes. But one day we'll meet each other in heaven. God bless you all!

Sandy Hook Elementary | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/19/12

I thought of this song many times since the horrific tragedy on December 14 in Newtown, CT. It is such a moving song of a breaking heart trying to deal with loss. Thanks, Eric, for sharing it with the world. <3

I was touched... | Reviewer: Kerry | 11/4/12

I was touched by the outpouring of sadness over loved ones who have gone on to the other side, ahead of us. I prayed for strength and comfort for these precious souls who posted their comments and who shared in memories, of losing close loved ones. My own mother passed away on December 28, 2006, and I have visited her grave everyday without fail, since. I miss Mom, dearly but still have a loving father, brother, sister, niece, and girlfriend. Then, there is hope, too, because Mom was a dedicated Christian who loved God and His Son, Jesus, her family and all whom she knew. I know that Mom will be in Heaven, and I want to be there with her but don't know at times if I can make it. I try to be like my parents, but they, to me, were and are, super heroes. I am a 62-year old, retired secondary education school teacher, and I still cry at times over Mom's passing. We should never outgrow love, nor should we become, "too big," to allow ourselves release the pains of grief. I beleive that tears can be a balm for healing. I truly believe in God and in His concern for all our sorrows...So to all of you who read this and to all who are in pain, my prayers are with you with hope that your tears will, One Day, be dried by our Lord. Thank you, Eric Clapton, for your song, "Tears In Heaven." I have just prayed for you, too. May God bless and comfort each of you. -Kerry

For my sister Karen | Reviewer: Angelus Mortis | 8/13/11

I was a kid when I first heard this song, I wasn't aware of the story behind this song that time. I remember my sister Karen when I hear this song, she died 11 years ago, she got blind by her brain tumor. It pains me as much as it pains her when she lost her sight. That time I can't do anything to help her. I didn't even become a good brother to her. Until now I can't forgive myself for not caring for her when she needed it most. I'm sorry Ate Karen... I'll take care of Mom for you. I promise.

Eric Clapton is a genious in music | Reviewer: kitti wagoner | 8/5/11

It is such a beautiful song and it fits with so many peoples lives, just like Layla, and so many other songs that Eric Clapton plays on his guitar and sings. Tears in Heaven was played at my 2nd uncles funeral, I wasnt there but my brother said it was beautiful. Thank you Eric Clapton

This song... | Reviewer: Gozeroo | 4/16/11

This is so far the only song that makes me cry everytime I hear or sing it... my dad has cancer and it doesn't look very well. This song just makes me think about what could happen. I don't want to lose him yet and I can't bare seeing him suffer...

My Love | Reviewer: Mira | 2/6/11

The man I fell in love with when I was 18 and that was 29 years ago has passed and went to the other side. It hasnt been a week yet I thought of this song and found all these reviews and it makes me feel better to see I am not alone.
Michael died of lung cancer and fought it for a year I was there for every step of the way.
I dont know where or what to do next.
I hope i can survive all this because I just feel like curling up in a ball and dying as well. I think I need to stay busy and change my environment different scenery different people. Please say a prayer for me so I find my way in life again.

See you in heaven Somayeh | Reviewer: Behzad | 1/5/11

Somayeh died last year
she was 28
she was arrested by the Iranian police during demonstration against the fraud in the presidential election.

She disappeared for 45 days
No one gave any information about her whereabouts and the police, army, prison hospitals, had no information .. or so they said

after 45 days her mother was notified to receive her broken body

She had been raped, tortured, mistreated and the scars were everywhere.

Her ribs brokeen, all nails removed and hundreds of signs of cigarette burns on her nipples, chest, legs ...

The criminals who kidnapped and tortured her were part of the government of Iran.
I cried and cried for her for months although I never had seen her.
I just had heard her name after her disappearance.

she was the classmate of my girlfriend for TOEFL and IELS English class.

Somayaeh's name was never published anywhere like thousands of other girls an guys totured and killed during the demonstrations against the government .
She did not become famous like Neda Aghasoltan.

Her family was threatened to keep the funeral very low key or else all of them would be arrested

45 days in solitary confinement and torture of an innocent girl.

she was getting ready for IELS English test to go to the usa.

She died before the tests.
Where is her god?

her killers and torturers are still free and still killing other young people in Iran to keep this brutal Islamic regime intact

I still cry for her and for all brave people who die for their higher callings, to bring democracy in their country.

She is in heaven I hope ...

Good bye Somayeh

beautiful...... | Reviewer: Karen | 12/7/10

Every time I hear this song, I think of lost loved ones - and smile. I hadn't heard the song in a long time, until yesterday and couldn't stop humming it all day (with a tear in my eye at some points). My health has been poor and I've decided to have this song performed by my cousin at my funeral. What a beautiful, meaningful song...

I miss my mom and dad | Reviewer: erick manurung | 12/4/10

About one years ago I lost my mom and my dad. At July 22nd my mom was died and at July 24th my dad was died too. I don't understand what just happened to me, to my family. I'm 19 years old, and I still need them.I really miss them, I miss their laugh, their jokes, and their sounds when they wake me up at morning. But I promise to be a successful guy, I want make them proud of me. And we'll meet in heaven. God Bless you guys

losing a loved one... | Reviewer: Justina | 8/15/10

I really cannot hear this song without tearing up because it just makes me think of the loved ones that I've lost. It makes you think about when you go to heaven and whether the people you knew on Earth will know who you are. I lost my grandma nearly 6 years ago and it still feels fresh. A dear friend of the family died just short of a week before. Then just recently a close high school friend of mine was killed. Those were all the most tragic times in my life so far and listening to this song brings tears to my eyes everytime. When I learned of why Eric Clapton wrote this song I couldnt help but feel sad. Whether or not you know him, you can't help but feel his pain. It's a tragic thing and that's why songs like these are here because they come from the heart and they are definitely comforting to all of us who have lost a loved one <3

Sweet moments | Reviewer: John Santo | 3/25/10

I lost a son and a daughter within 3 years. It is very hard to experience these lost but every time i hear this song I think of them with a smile. This song brightens up my life. I miss them very much but still this song fills the empty place within me. It brings back the sweet moments I had with them. Thank you Eric Clapton.

The most beautiful and sad song I've heard! | Reviewer: Alan Lantz | 3/24/10

Conor died when I was a little baby, do not know anything about this child, neither his father Eric, this song and what had happened.
I know now after reading everything on the internet and was really a horrible tragedy. The worst thing for a parent is to lose a son.
This song has the lyrics that I have stolen more tears in my life. They are very touching, sad but beautiful lyrics. I think Connor sees his father in heaven, and can not wait to see him again, I think Eric knows his son will always be with him, in their heart and soul. I think this way so he could continue with life and thus make this song so magical. The talent of a genius and experience of a proof of life, we all have, and really are very, very painful. That is why the magic of this song that leaves a clear message, that is not to give up and go, and accept it, because it was what God said. Without knowing these situations lead to one, sometimes, to be stronger. Ultimately I think that Connor would be proud of his father because he never under the arms and continued paddling. It is a thorn that Eric always carried with him. But I think Connor will live forever in his father until the last moment. It was very unfair what happened, I guess God needed another angel in heaven.

Timothy Paul | Reviewer: Jo | 3/9/10

I heard this song this morning and I wanted to hear it again and again. When I try to read or sing the lyrics, it makes me cry. I lost my son 5 years ago. His name was Timothy Paul. He was the most wonderful, loyal, funny, loving, son, brother, father and friend anyone would ever want to meet. Losing him broke our hearts. His dad died 20 months before him, and that was painful but nothing as painful as losing Timothy. He was 25 years old. Our lives will never be the same. As a mother I felt cheated because I was supposed to go before any of my children. But I guess that's the way it is sometimes. Thank God for people like Eric Clapton who can write such beautiful lyrics and music. Thank you for your site!
