Heaven by Los Lonely Boys

I'm sure if you love music, you will be familiar with a song, titled Heaven. I often listen this song many times when driving to work or driving home. It is sung by a rock band, named Los Lonely Boys.

First time I didn't know about their profiles at all, I just enjoyed their music very much. Yesterday when I went to church, the music members sang this song in the end of their performance. Wow, I would like to stand up and move my body to dance, but I just kept seating, clapped my hands and moved my head and shoulder. I love this song, especially its lyric, it is simple but gives us a deep thought: How far is heaven?

I tried to search their video and found out their profiles. Gosh, I was wrong! I thought they are one of the Americans rock band (pure), NO, they are Mexican - American rock band. I was so impressed.

Below is their video I would like to share with you, guys!! ENJOY!!!

by Los Lonely Boys


Save me from this prison
Lord, help me get away
'Cause only you can save me now
From this misery

Well I've been lost in my own place
And I'm getting' weary
How far is heaven?
And I know that I need to change
My ways of living
How far is heaven?
Lord, can you tell me?

I've been locked up way too long
In this crazy world
How far is heaven?
I just keep on prayin', Lord
I just keep on livin'
How far is heaven?
(Oh, Lord, can you tell me?)
How far is heaven?
(I just gotta know how far it is)
How far is heaven?
(Oh, Lord, can you tell me?)

Tu que estas en alto cielo, hechame tu bendicion.
[translated from Spanish: you that's in a higher place, send me down a blessing]

'Cause I know there's a better place
In this place I'm livin'
How far is heaven?
So I just got to show some faith
And just keep on givin'
How far is heaven?
(Oh, Lord can you tell me)
How far is heaven?
(I just gotta know how far it is)
How far is heaven?
(Oh, Lord, can you tell me?)
How far is heaven?
I just gotta know how far
I just wanna know how far


What am I doing right now?

Los Lonely Boys are comprised of the Garza brothers from San Angelo, Texas. They are Americans of Mexican decent. As a matter of fact, they just came back from Iraq where they were entertaining the troops. You can see video and pictures of the trip on their Fan Forum:
If you like Heaven, you might also enjoy "Forgiven" from their latest CD entitled, FORGIVEN. Many of their songs on FORGIVEN and their second CD, SACRED, have religious connotations.
