Trace Adkins My Heaven Lyrics
Everybody has their own idea of heaven
What kind of paradise they'll see.
Pearly gates, streets of gold
No gettin' sick or growing old.
Sounds like a beautiful place to be.
But as for me
My heaven is a wood frame house with a great big porch going all the way around
Sittin' on the swing listening to the sounds of the birds sing
My heaven is a warm summer day in the backyard while the kids all play.
Flies and mosquitoes all stay away while we eat watermelon
That's my heaven.
You're always going to find a few non-believers.
Those who stay lost in the dark, but I believe there is a place full of light,
Love and grace and I don't believe that it's all that fun
In my heart my heaven is a cell phone ring while
I'm at work and the only thing that you have to say is you miss me
And get home in a hurry.
My heaven is the very worst day that I spent with you
And you were so mad but I still knew nobody believes
Cause that don't happen in my heaven.
My heaven is where I am now on the front porch
Of a wood frame house swinging with you
Just lookin' around at all that I've been given
And this life I'm livin' is my heaven
