"Road To Heaven" as written by and John Ondrasik....
Sometimes I think about silly things
It's easy to do if you have the time
Often happens when I'm falling off to sleep
After a second glass of wine

The clock is usually running out
Down by one or could be tied
I'm fading back
Winding up
The championship on the line...but...

What if there was a road to heaven
That's what came to me today
Would there be Traffic jams with diamond lanes
Potholes filled up with rain
Would there be Tolls still left to pay

If there was a road to heaven
Made of gold or made out of clay
Would the Angels wave me up the hill
Or in my mirror just fade away

I've never been the kind a man who hits his knees
Got no answers for big questions
I don't know...
Maybe tomorrow lightning will hit me on the head
And we can find out if we're just a joke

Jesus I'm told can build a bridge
Finer than any other man
There's a certain peace to an country road
With a wheel in your hand

If there was a road to heaven
Would there be laws I must obey
If I drove my mustang 85
Late one night turned out the lights
Would the stars still light the way

If there was a road to heaven
Made of Gold or Made of Clay
Would the Angels lead me up the hill
Or in my mirror just fade away

Night turns morning
The old man should be snoring
I got to get some sleep before I'm awake

Up with the monkeys
I sure love the monkeys
But this job ain't all cookies and cake

Sometimes I think about silly things
It's easy to do if you got the wine
In The Eagle we're landing
I'm the President
Or a foreign king
With a harem from Encino to Brunei

But if there was a road to heaven
It'd be one long and crazy ride
If there was a road to heaven babe
That's a road that I'd like to find.

    General CommentMy best guess:
    The singer sometimes ponders the meaning of life and if God exists. When he's drunk and dreaming, he wonders if the path to understand our place in the world is anyone out there, and what it could be like. Maybe someday he'll find this path...

    General CommentSomething interesting I picked out in the song thats kinda funny. It seems when we are sober we see heaven as something that is otherworldy and spiritual, but in the song after he's had some wine he sees heaven as something "material" with streets and traffic jams. When in reality we usually have a hard time seeing things real and material when we are drunk.
