lyrics

I’ve been dreaming of the day of judgment
Wondering what I’ll say
For the seasons I lost to sorrow
The sin of my wasted days
For the beauty I should have noticed
The kindness I did not give
The bounty I took for granted
The life that I could have lived

Held up at the gates of heaven
Held up before the light
Stretched out ‘til i was transparent
There was nowhere i could hide

The preacher he talks of glory
Of streets to be paved in gold
He’s got a book and he’s got a story
And we all have heard it told
Well I wonder how he came to thinking
That he’s speaking for the one above
‘Cause the only rule I know is true
There’s no limit to the reach of love
No Limit to the reach of love

Held up at the gates of heaven
Held up before the light
Stretched out ‘til i was transparent
There was nowhere i could hide
Sent back to the living world
I’ve got so much more to learn
Everybody makes the same mistakes
Everybody takes their turn

How can you sit in judgment
How do you cast that stone
When everybody here’s a sinner
And everybody feels alone
Brother you aren’t so broken
Sister you ain’t so small
Everybody leaves together
Or nobody goes at all

Held up at the gates of heaven
Held up before the light
Stretched out till i was transparent
There was nothing i could hide
Sent back to the living world
I’ve got so much more to learn
Everybody makes the same mistakes
Everybody takes their turn
Everybody makes the same mistakes
And everybody takes their turn
