"Heaven's in New York" as written by Jerry Duplessis and Wyclef Jean....
If it was my last day on earth
I'd treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent so pure with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest be what I wanna be
Last day on earth

I tell my momma don't cry I'll see my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk
But for now Heaven's in New York

[Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Heavens in New York
Oh oh oh oh

First thing I'd do is go back in time take the twin towers, put it back in the skyline
Tell my girl two wrongs still don't make a right
Make love for the last time under the candlelight
Pick up my hommies at the gentleman club after that hit
Club and Reminisce about the High School Days
Man I sucked as a quarterback remember getting sacked man almost broke my back yeah

If it was my last day on earth
I'd treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent so pure with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest be what I wanna be
Last day on earth I tell my girl don't cry I'm with my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk
But for now Heaven's in New York

[Chorus]

I tell the man get the people a tax break
Kids stop shootin' I cant sing in no more ways
I cant take the money with me so I caught a movie
Favorite actress Angelina Jolie
Favorite Singer has to be Marley
Turn Up the Bass
And move to his styling's
Cant leave without reading my daughter a bedtime story the heavens is calling

If it was my last day on earth
I'd treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent so pure with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest be what I want to be
Last day on earth I tell my homies don't cry I'm with my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk
But for now
Heaven's in New York

[Chorus]

Welcome to New York City
Even though I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death I fear No evil
For you are with me so tell my loves ones please don't cry
Cause if doves can fly so can I

If it was my last day on earth
I'd treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent so pure with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest be what I want to be
Last day on earth I tell my homies don't cry I'm with my dad in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk
But for now
Heaven's in New York

[Chorus]

Even though I walk through the Valley of Shadow of Death I fear
No evil for you are with me so
Tell my loves ones please don't cry
Cause if doves can fly so can I

If it was my last day on earth
I'd treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent so pure with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest be what I want to be
Last day on earth I tell my homies don't cry I'm with my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk
But for now Heaven's in New York
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk, the crippled can walk
But for now
Heaven's in New York

[Chorus x3]

Welcome To
New York City...
Heaven's In New York City

    General CommentI think this song is beautiful and me being from Staten Island im only a boat ride away from the heart of NewYork. Manhattan is so beautiful just looking up and seeing the buildings sky high its incredible to me. NewYork is like Heaven to me you get taken away from the sights this song is amazing.
