Warrant - Heaven - Meaning of the song
This tender pop ballad was Warrant's biggest hit. Their frontman Jani Lane was also their primary songwriter, and in this track, he sings about how heaven is right here on Earth as long as he's with the girl he loves. This one is definitely for the ladies, as Lane makes it clear he is devoted to this special girl ("I'm never giving up on you") and he doesn't care what everyone else thinks about it ("No matter what your friends might say").
Heaven - Lyrics
I've got a picture of your house And you're standing by the door. It's black and white and faded, And it's looking pretty worn. See the factory that I worked Silhouetted in the back. The memories are gray but man they're really coming back. I don't need to be the king of the world As long as i'm the hero of this little girl Heaven isn't too far away Closer to it everyday No matter what your friends might say How I love the way you move And the sparkle in your eyes There's a color deep inside them Like blue suburban skys When i come home late at night And you're in bed asleep I wrap my arms around you So I can feel you breathe I dont need to be a superman As long as you will always be my biggest fan Heaven isn't too far away Closer to it everyday (Ah, ah) No matter what your friends might say We'll find our way, yeah Now the lights are going out, Along the boulevard Memories come rushing back and makes it pretty hard I've got nowhere left to go And no one really cares I don't know what to do But I'm never giving up on you. Heaven isn't too far away Closer to it every day ohhhh ohhh No matter what your friends say I know we're gonna find a way (Heaven) Whoah, oohh, ohhh Whoah, oohh, ohhh (Heaven) It's not too far away Whoah, oohh, ohhh Yeah yeah yeah
