Lyrics

NEXT STOP IS HEAVEN
© 2018 Richard Bruce Eells

My life’s a train track with many stations
I started slowly, but then I built up speed
Sometimes it’s too slow and tries my patience
Sometimes it’s too fast and I get more than I need

But the price for all that speed was too much sorrow
It’s not nice to know the line could end tomorrow
Don’t think twice, get on the train, no need to borrow
Just take a seat, He paid the fare, Next Stop Is Heaven.

For years the line that I was on was surely wasted
The stations on it they all flew by as I passed
The bitter smell of smoke was all I tasted
I thought each station was gonna be my last

But the price for all that speed was too much sorrow
It’s not nice to know the line could end tomorrow
Don’t think twice, get on the train, no need to borrow
Just take a seat, He paid the fare, Next Stop Is Heaven

Jesus died, He did it for me-he
Crucified so I could go free-he
Just believe and you will see-he… He-he-he!

The time and days for words are surely over
And nothing matters but matters of the heart
The life I’m leading now is clean and sober
I’ve got a chance to make a brand new start

And the price for all that speed was too much sorrow
I’m not afraid to know the line could end tomorrow
Don’t think twice, get on the train, no need to borrow
Just take a seat, He paid the fare,
Next Stop Is Heaven.
Next Stop Is Heaven.
Next Stop Is Heaven.
Next Stop Is Heaven.
