"Holes In The Floor Of Heaven" as written by and William A Kirsch Steve Wariner....
One day shy of eight years old,
When grandma passed away.
I was a broken hearted little boy,
Blowing out that birthday cake.
How I cried when the sky let go,
With a cold lonesome rain.
My mom smiled, said: "Don't be sad child.
"Grandma's watching you today."

"'cause there's holes in the floor of Heaven,
"And her tears are pouring down.
"That's how you know she's watching,
"Wishing she could be here now.
"An' sometimes if you're lonely,
"Just remember she can see.
"There's holes in the floor of Heaven
"And she's watching over you and me."

Seasons come and seasons go,
Nothing stays the same.
I grew up, fell in love,
Met a girl who took my name.
Year by year, we made a life,
In this sleepy little town.
I thought we'd grow old together,
Lord, I sure do miss her now.

"'cause there's holes in the floor of Heaven,
"And her tears are pouring down.
"That's how you know she's watching,
"Wishing she could be here now.
"An' sometimes if you're lonely,
"Just remember she can see.
"There's holes in the floor of Heaven
"And she's watching over you and me."

Well my little girl is 23,
I walk her down the aisle.
It's a shame her Mom can't be here now,
To see her lovely smile.
They throw the rice, I catch her eye,
As the rain starts coming down.
She takes my hand; says: "Daddy don't be sad,
'cause I know Mama's watching now."

"'cause there's holes in the floor of Heaven,
"And her tears are pouring down.
"That's how you know she's watching,
"Wishing she could be here now.
"An' sometimes if you're lonely,
"Just remember she can see.
"There's holes in the floor of Heaven
"And she's watching over you and me."

Watching over you and me.

Watching over you and me.

Watching over you and me.

    General CommentYou are never alone, if you have someone in your heart. Never dwell on the death of a loved one, as they are still watching over you, and would want you to be happy.

    General CommentI love this song, even though it's sad. I lost my grandfather when I was 9. He was a huge part of my life. When I miss him, I just remember that he's looking down and watching over me.

    Memorythis song started playing wen i was at camp.... i had never heard it and yet i started crying like a baby... nobody knew wat was wrong and i never told them because i never figured it out either. then i realized why it made me so sad....death is scary and sad and when someone you love dies all you want is to believe they are still with you. but i wasnt like that wen my gramma died. i shut everything out and stayed by myself alot, mostly because i didnt want to face the truth: that gramma was gone. when i heard this song i started crying because i felt ashamed. ashamed that i shut everything out and pretend that i was okay and i didnt need help. if gramma had been watching me the whole time then what would she think i remembered all the time it had raines since her death...my b day the time i won my first horseshow, even when my mom and i made up for as huge fight. it really healed me, now thinking, even if i knew it wasnt likely, that gramma was right there with me the whole time.

    General CommentThis is probably one of the worst songs ever. Let me understand what the narrator is saying...the kid is sad because grandma's dead, and his mother tells him it's OK, grandma's in heaven and crying so hard it's raining out. Thanks Mom, I feel better knowing grandma is dead AND miserably sad too!
