lyrics: “if heaven is here?”

It's My Life/Your Heaven

It’s My Life/Your Heaven (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

If I took a picture       of how I should be         and put it in a frame    and said it was me
I might try to pretend   that I’m like the ideal    and, with years of practice,   my lies could become real
I’m so good at faking     my personality            that I faked forgetting    that it was never me
I didn’t even plan it         when planning happened to me         I’m the one watching     all the activity
So listen close when I talk about my identity.     Do I talk about my life like it’s always victimized me?
Is life an evil villain that foiled my best intentions     Did it disappoint me and ruin everything?
I’d blame the devil    if I thought it’d get me to heaven.
but I’d thank God            if I was already here.
If I took a picture       of how life should be            and put it in a frame    and called it reality
I might try to pretend   that something’s not right      that someone’s to blame   and my job is to fight
to make life be perfect      instead of how it is now      and to prevent my enemies       from thinking I’m a clown
They all say that their way is best      but their way isn’t mine     so clearly theirs are the wrong ideals       cause mine must be right
I’d hate a devil         if I thought it’d get me to heaven.
but I’d thank God            if I was already here.
I’d blame the devil    if I thought it’d get me to heaven.
but I’d thank God            if I was already here.
If I took a picture       of how I should be         and put it in a frame    and said it was me
I might try to pretend   that I’m like the ideal    and, with years of practice,   my lies could become real
I’m so good at faking     my personality            that I faked forgetting    that it was never me
I didn’t even plan it          when planning happened to me         I’m the one watching     all the activity
So listen close when I talk about my identity.     Do I talk about my life like it’s always victimized me?
Is life an evil villain that spoiled my best intentions     Did it disappoint me and ruin everything?
