leaving heaven lyrics – matthew west

“leaving heaven”

well, it’s been real nice living way up here
in paradise, over the atmosphere
but i can’t stay long, gotta make my way
i’m leaving heaven today

you see the world is dark and it needs a light
i’m gonna hang a star in the eastern sky
so everybody’s gonna know where i touch down
i’m leaving heaven right now

i’m gonna walk around that broken earth
trading in these streets of gold
so if you ever wonder how much you’re worth
you should know
that you’re the reason why i’m leaving heaven

ain’t gonna be no kingdom, ain’t gonna be no crown
just a little old manger, in a little old town
but it’ll do just fine for this humble king
i’m leaving heaven let all the angels sing

i’m gonna walk around that broken earth
trading in these streets of gold
so if you ever wonder how much you’re worth
you should know
you’re the reason why i’m leaving heaven

and when my time comes to an end
i’ll lay down my life like a truest friend
and when i get back home, i’m gonna make some room
so, don’t you worry, ‘cause i’m coming back for you

and you will say goodbye to that broken earth
you’re gonna walk on streets of gold
and if you ever wonder what my love is worth
well you should know
that i’m the reason you’ll be seeing heaven
oh, you’re the reason why i’m leaving heaven
i’m leaving heaven
