Questions for Heaven
by Chris Rice
Feel the sun in my eyes
Swat that clumsy fly
Woke me up from a dream about heaven
Smelling coffee down stairs
Yawn a quick little prayer
And get up at a quarter to seven
The mirror catches my stare
Got some nice pillow hair
And I smile all the way to the bathroom
Scratch my wiskerly chin
Now my cranium swims
With questions I can't wait to ask you
Like why did you bother with so many stars?
Do you ever play tricks on the angels?
And what happened to all of those dinosaurs?
Where's the Garden of Eden?
And, what causes de ja vue?
Guess in heaven I'll learn
I'll be waiting my turn
To ask about quasars and feathers
I hope the line isn't long
I hope you're patients is strong
It's a good thing foreverĺs forever
Do our jokes make you laugh?
What's you're favorite cartoon?
Can you tell me what's out past the edges?
And what about UFO's, taste buds, and tornados?
Why do we dream?
Oh, and what causes de ja vue?
Time to call it a day
Time to turn of my brain
It's already half past eleven
I reach to turn out the light
And close my sleepy eyes
I save up the questions for heaven
I'll save all the questions for heaven
I'm saving up questions for heaven´╗┐
