City sidewalk Bright Saturday morning Beggar with a halo shuffles up to me
He asks me for a coin
Says thank you and god bless you
Good deeds and halos I'm not sure what I believe He asked me if there's something I can give back to you
How bout this halo

Now I'm sneakin' into heaven With a borrowed halo
Hopin' no one notices my broken wing Peekin through these gates and thinkin lord have mercy I'm never gonna make it if it's up to me
 Apostle Peter
Taps me on the shoulder Said son are you lost
I said can you show me around I'll be bound to
Tell me what brings you to heaven today
I've always wondered what the fuss is all about I feel like a kid flashin a fake id Tryin to slip past the authority 
Now I'm sneakin' into heaven With a borrowed halo
Hopin' no one notices my broken wing Peekin through these gates and thinkin lord have mercy I'm never gonna make it if it's up to me

Hey Mr Pedro I have a little confession
I don't belong here
And this halo isn't mine Peter laughed
And said Lord happened to notice We've all been broken But now we'll do just fine Cause nobody's good enough But up here we're all the same
We all get to heaven On someone else's name

Sneakin' into heaven With a borrowed halo
Hopin' no one notices my broken wing Peekin through these gates and thinkin lord have mercy (2 times)
I'm never gonna make it if it's up to me
No, I'm never gonna make it if it's up to me
I'm never gonna make it if it's up to me
