You know that feeling you get when you hear of something awful and just have to help? This is a song I wrote after visiting a war zone and meeting teenagers my age, dealing with a whole host of other problems.


Oh, Heaven


Gather fighters every day
From dark corners with no name
From east to west,
Gather round

Cold and scared and all alone
But we’ve got a fire that’s all our own
And we stand up,
And we’ll hold our own

Oh Heaven,
Give me a chance to fight
Just one chance,
For the secrets clandestine,
For the cries, if you listen,
So I can keep my soul alive,
For those who didn’t need to die.
Oh-oh Heaven,
Give me strength and give me power,
The strength,
To set things right

Fight for a home for everyone
Where there’s no need to carry a gun
We know,
We know where we’ve been
Oh!
So don’t follow what the others do
Instead, let them follow you
Rock and roll,
It’s time to speak up (OR You know, you know what to do)
Oh!

Oh Heaven,
Give me a chance to fight
Just one chance,
For the secrets clandestine,
For the cries, if you listen,
So I can keep my soul alive,
For those who didn’t need to die.
Oh-oh Heaven,
Give me strength and give me power,
The strength,
To set things right

And if I die today
Will I have the scars for your eyes?
Oh!
And in a world full of knowledge,
No one is truly wise
Oh!
So we fight,
Enough to feel alive

Oh Heaven,
Give me a chance to fight
Just one chance,
For the secrets clandestine,
For the cries, if you listen,
So I can keep my soul alive,
For those who didn’t need to die.
Oh-oh Heaven,
Give me strength and give me power,
The strength,
To set things right

Oh Heaven,
Give me a chance to fight
Just one chance,
For the secrets clandestine,
For the cries, if you listen,
So I can keep my soul alive,
For those who didn’t need to die.
Oh-oh Heaven,
Give me strength and give me power,
The strength,
To set things right
