I Don't Want To Die

I believe in Jesus
I believe in God
I try to live a good life
But life is very hard

I try to love
So I can find Heaven in the sky
But why must I find Heaven
On the day that I die

If u lead a good Christian life
U will be rewarded in death
But I need to find Heaven
With the life I have left

Why must a cease to exist
To live with an angel on a cloud
Why can't I find Heaven
In the life I have now

My life is difficult
But I try not to commit sin
But why must I perish
For my life in Heaven to begin

Why can't I find Heaven now
Because I need Heaven in the life I now live
But yet in order to find eternal happiness
My difficult life I must give

Is there a place on this planet
Where Heaven is alive
Or must I wait till the end
Until I no longer can survive

I live in America
The land of the free and the brave
But are the soldiers in Iraq
Finding Heaven in their graves

I don't want to die and go to Heaven
I want Heaven Now
The only problem is I am sad
So someone please show me how

Show me how to find Heaven
Has anyone out there found such a place
If u somehow managed to discover Heaven
Let me know becoz my life is a disgrace

I try to find happines in the people I love
I try and find Heaven in my children and wife
But my family is also searching
Becoz Heaven does not exist in their lives

So I try and find an answer
In wine, drugs and booze
But when the bottle is empty
I feel defeated and abused

So I take a hit of a joint
Maybe I'll find Heaven when I'm stoned
But when the high of the joint ends
I am still all alone

Is there a place where happiness lives
A place where I don't have to cry
I want to find Heaven
But I don't want to die
