Leaving Heaven - Poem by Robert Barnes

angel eyes angel eyes
would you always be there
would you keep out all the lies
would you overflow me with your care
cause i can see the things i really want to see
i can see inside of you what i really want to be
i can remember back when your kiss
made something spark inside of me
i was lost in your bliss
your touch always felt like destiny
so if i called your name would you turn around
if you did the same i would be heaven bound
if i needed you if i needed to be saved
what would you do to keep me from the grave
if you needed me to pick you up from your knees
you would see i would search down the darkest alleys
i'd come full force and save the princess
i'd have no remorse for making you joyous
your smile would warm my heart
knowing all the while i'd never part
but i can't stay here in your grace
can't stay in your beautiful heaven
i can see it in your face
i don't belong here in heaven
you've got another one
another who has your heart
for him it's me youd shun
for him youd make us part
i made the mistakes
and i'm sorry for that
but i'd do what it takes
even just to get shot in the back
but i must be strong
i must do what i can
it hurts to carry on
i die trying to stand
but i fight my way
through every night and every day
just to be close to you close to my love
i'm at a loss of what to do because i can't catch the dove
so don't look at me as you turn away
don't want you to see what happens that day
because angels lie with angel eyes
your angel eyes always make me cry
my god it's amazing that we got this far
because i was the devil and shot down your stars
so look at me with your angel eyes
and i'll melt in their sight
because i don't care if innocent angels lie
i am graced just to be in your light
but it hurts to think that the one i love
the one i gave my heart to
is the one i shove
and the one whos heart i ripped in two
so as you have me up above the clouds
before you deny me of your love again
i'll put on the shroud
so you don't see the tears as i leave your heaven
