Would you know my name  I
f I saw you in heaven 
Will it be the same  
If I saw you in heaven 

I must be strong, and carry on 
Cause I know I don't belong 
Here in heaven 

Would you hold my hand  
If I saw you in heaven 
Would you help me stand 
If I saw you in heaven 

I'll find my way, through night and day 
Cause I know I just can't stay 
Here in heaven 

Time can bring you down  
Time can bend your knee 
Time can break your heart  
Have you begging please 
Begging please 

Beyond the door 
There's peace I'm sure. 
And I know there'll be no more 
Tears in heaven 

Would you know my name  
If I saw you in heaven 
Will it be the same  
If I saw you in heaven 

I must be strong, and carry on 
Cause I know I don't belong 
Here in heaven
