Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven
I must be strong and carry on
Cos I know I wont 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
Cos I know I just cant stay here in heaven

Time can bring you down; time can bend your knees
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

    General CommentThis song is so sad! I think this song is about Eric Clapton's son who died when he was really little. I think he is wondering if his son will still know him when one day they are reunited in heaven. I always remember the people I know who have died when I hear this song.

    General CommentI think its sick someone did a cover of this song.
    This was Eric Claptons song to his young son who died. I don't think any other artist deserves the right to take his grief and get paid off it.
