Song: Heaven only 20 miles away

I crossed over to the other side and found the same old thing
People fighting for their lives, sky a dish mop grey
Homeless people walking, with their broken wings
The road sign said to heaven, only 20 miles away

Families walking down the road following the sign
Broken boats and muddy coats and nowhere to stay
Thinking I should be there soon, it’s just a matter of time
The road sign said to heaven, only 20 miles away

Women on the wayside asking for a crust of bread
Children in the car park with their bandaged heads
All following the road signs in the morning grey
If you going to heaven it’s only 20 miles away

An old man in a wheelchair a lady on a crutch
A crippled soldier crying a dog without a hutch
Down the road they go by a closed café
And heaven is a town somewhere only twenty miles away

They said it was a western town a place to settle down
With houses to rent and jobs for life in a beautiful town
The forecast said the sky would be grey
All the road signs point to heaven only 20 miles away

A truck of refugees were singing a weary song
A man without a passport who had no were to belong
And just as it was getting dark and I could not find my way
The road sign said to heaven only twenty miles away
