My Heaven

(From 2002 cd The Child Behind My Eyes - words & music by Laurie McClain)
my utopian dream song, sure hope it's true...
in my heaven the jokes are all funny
and you don't need money cause everything's free
and in my heaven
no need for pretending
cause you can be whatever you want to be
and in my heaven
nobody cares what race or religion you are cause life's fair
there's no natural disasters no famine no wars
and no terrible secrets behind closed doors

and the lions and tigers and bears oh my
will lick your face and walk by your side
and no one gets killed cause nothing can die
in my heaven, my heaven, my heaven, oh my

in my heaven you don't need a car
you just wish to be upon any star
you can fly with the eagles or glide with the seagulls
in my heaven you could stay right where you are

and your great great grandbaby and your great great grandma
can dance with your great great great great great grandpa
cause time comes together for the whole human race
for always and ever in infinite space

and in my heaven every one can swim and scuba dive without oxygen
and the water is clear no toxins dumped in
and all of the sharks are vegetarians
and you can be silly and no one will glare and it's okay to laugh loud and it's okay to stare
and you're always learning but it never feels like school
there are no grades to earn and no meaningless rules

and in my heaven all the mommies and daddies
do what mommies and daddies are supposed to do
just like the Banks family after Mary Poppins left
and all of the children are little angels too

and everyone's healthy and no one gets sick
if you get gum in your hair it will not stick
and the stars and the sun are brighter than bright
but you never get sunburn cause love is the light

and your great great grandbaby and your great great grandpa
can dance with your great great great great great grandma
cause time comes together for the whole human race
for always and ever in infinite space
and the lions and tigers and bears oh my
will lick your face and walk by your side
and no one gets killed
cause nothing can die in my heaven, my heaven, my heaven, oh my
