"View From Heaven" as written by Benjamin Eric Harper, William Ryan Key, Peter Michael Mosely, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons and Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
I'm just so tired
Won't you sing me to sleep
And fly through my dreams
So I can hitch a ride with you tonight

And get away from this place
Have a new name and face
I just ain't the same with out you in my life

Late night drives
All alone in my car
I can't help but start
Singing lines from all our favorite songs

And melodies in the air
Singing â??life just ain't fairâ??
Sometimes I still just can't believe you're gone

And I'm sure the view from heaven
Beats the hell out of mine here
And if we all believe in heaven
Maybe we'll make it through one more year
Down here

Feel your fire
When it's cold in my heart
And things sort of start
Reminding me of my last night with you

I only need one more day
Just one more chance to say
I wish that I had gone up with you too

And I'm sure the view from heaven
Beats the hell out of mine here
And if we all believe in heaven
Maybe we'll make it through one more year
Down here

You won't be coming back
And I didn't get to say good bye
(good bye)
And I really wish I got to say
Good bye

And I'm sure the view from heaven
Beats the hell out of mine here
And if we all believe in heaven
Maybe we'll make it through one more year

I hope that all is well in heaven
(I'll be singing in heaven?)
'Cause it's all shot to hell down here
(We need you here)
I know that I'll find you in heaven
(Singing in heaven)
'Cause I'm so lost with out you
Down here

You won't be coming back
And I didn't get to say good bye
I really wish I got to say good bye

    General CommentAccording to Yellowcard's official site:

    "What is the song 'View From Heaven' about?
    The song is dedicated to Scott Shad, who was the co-founding drummer for Inspection 12. Scott was sadly killed in a car accident in 2001; he was best friends with several members of Yellowcard."

    General Commentdamn the violin at the beginning is orgasmic, yellowcard are a damn decent line-up.

    Its nice to dedicate a song to an old friend.
