Heaven by Los Lonely Boys

What do you think?

‘Heaven’ was written after Los Lonely Boys guitarist Henry Garza’s baby son died from SIDS. Henry was only 18.

As he said in an interview with San Antonio News Express “That was the biggest turning point of my life. Those first couple of years I was just searching. It was either up or down for me. That was the biggest experience of my life, man. I found the Lord Jesus through that experience.”

In an interview on NPR Radio, Henry said “It laid a big impact upon our whole family. And I think it gave us a lot more strength and appreciation towards life and each other – even more. And the music, on top of that, just got even more real and more sincere. Just like when I played a note, I was actually crying behind that note.”

 

 

Lyrics

Vamonos!
Save me from this prison
Lord, help me get away
Cause only you can save me now from this misery
I’ve been lost in my own place, and I’m gettin’ weary
How far is heaven?
And I know that I need to change my ways of livin’
How far is heaven?

Lord, can you tell me
I’ve been locked up way too long in this crazy world
How far is heaven?
And I just keep on prayin’, Lord, and just keep on livin’
How far is heaven?
Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?
How far is heaven? (Cause I just gotta to show some faith, yeah)
How far is heaven? (Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?)

Tu que estas en alto cielo
Echame tu bendicion
Cause I know there’s a better place than this place I’m living
How far is heaven?
So I just got to have some faith and just keep on giving
How far is heaven? (Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?)
How far is heaven? (Cause I just got to know how far, yeah)
How far is heaven? (Yeah, Lord, can you tell me?)
How far is heaven? (Cause I just gotta know how far)
I just want to know how far
