S200 groups: Layla Musselwhite, "Heaven"



"Heaven"

Well, I run so fast I'm a streak of black moonlight
You see my shadow moving, my footprints burning bright
I'm gonna use this morning to bring me through this cold night

The fields shine like silver, the people shine like gold
The fields shine like silver, the people shine like gold
And my poverty falls from me like stewed meat off a bone

When I leave you, honey, [I] leave my heart behind
I leave you honey, leave my heart behind
I'm gonna hang you up, be a star in my sky

Nobody knows where I was born
Nobody knows where I was born
If you see my soul in heaven, don't tell them where I'm from
You see my soul in heaven, don't tell them where I'm from
If you see my soul in heaven, don't tell them where I'm, don't tell them where I'm from.
