Lyrics

If it is God each time that you got a sense of peace, then
I think I might know him, judging by going home this evening.
The crackle of leaves, and the humming of streets, and the dancing of flies.
And the thought of your face up ahead just a ways—pacifies.

If it is heaven when you start heading for the light.
Then I think I just saw it. I think I just caught a glimpse tonight
While taking the back roads on my way back home in the rain.
Your house is a star. I’m driving my car to heaven this way.

If it is holy not to be lonely in your heart, then
Something divine must be down the line amidst the darkening
Sky. I’m breathing the air of angels there…senses are on fire.
And I’m hearing the gravel. It’s starting to rattle, and it sounds like a choir.

If it is heaven when you start heading for the light.
Then I think I just saw it. I think I just caught a glimpse tonight
While taking the back roads on my way back home in the rain.
Your house is a star. I’m driving my car to heaven this way.

If it is grace each time that you taste a bit of some glory,
Then I think I just kissed a bit of God’s lips when I kissed yours. We
Lay here for hours, the smell of the flowers cuts the cold.
And it’s got me believing even the seasons have a soul.

If it is heaven when you start heading for the light.
Then I think I just saw it. I think I just caught a glimpse tonight
While taking the back roads on my way back home in the rain.
Your house is a star. I’m driving my car to heaven this way.
