Warrant - Heaven

Heaven is a power ballad by American glam metal band Warrant. It was released in July 1989, as the second single from Warrant's debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich.

The song is Warrant's most commercially successful single, spending two weeks at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, and number three on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The track's commercial success has led it to becoming one of the best known songs by the band.

The music video starred Scottish model Tracy Allan. It was filmed during a live concert at Sandstone Amphitheater in Kansas City, Kansas and at other locations around the Kansas City Metro area as well as New York City.


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


Whoah, oohh, ohhh

Whoah, oohh, ohhh


It's not too far away

Whoah, oohh, ohhh

Yeah yeah yeah
