"Heaven Go Easy On Me" as written by Chris Zasche, Josiah Johnson, Charity Thielen, Kenny Hensley, Tyler Williams and Jonathan Russell....
Guys, what are we doing
Can't live this way forever
Gotta make ourselves some money
Or be thrown out with the bathwater

My sister and my brother
Look to me for answers
And our fathers and our mothers
Wanna know they raised us right
Wanna know they raised us right

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Isn't that the good life is a simple one
Sittin' in the yard watchin' the leaves go by
Reading good books and playing songs
Watching the wind blow through your front yard
Don't follow your head
Follow your heart

While you're sitting all alone in your room on your bed
And your windows are open but you won't go out, no
Heaven go easy on me
While you're sitting all alone in your room on your bed
And your windows are open but you won't go out, no
Ah heaven go easy on me

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

It's damn good to have met you
I hope that you stay
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way
We're well on our way

All these things are rushing by
All these things are rushing by
All these things are rushing by
All these things are rushing by

All things must end darling {All these things are rushing by}
All things must end darling
All things must end darling
All things must end darling

Heaven go easy on me

    My InterpretationGuys, what are we doing
    Can’t live this way forever
    Gotta make ourselves some money
    Or be thrown out with the bathwater

    He's (the narrator) referring to the way they're (him and his friends, bandmates, whoever) living now, and how they need to get out and get famous, and be noticed, or they'll be old news.

    My sister and my brother
    Look to me for answers
    And our fathers and our mothers
    Wanna know they raised us right
    Wanna know they raised us right

    The narrator is talking about how he has to be all the time. He can't act out, because his sister and brother see him as a role model, and he doesn't want to hurt his parents by showing him who he thinks he's become, so he stays in the lines.

    Isn’t that the good life is a simple one
    (backup) Sittin’ in the yard watchin’ the leaves go by
    Reading good books and playing songs
    Watching the wind blow through your front yard
    Don’t follow your head
    Follow your heart

    This verse is advice to the listener. He's saying to enjoy life as it comes, and to do what you feel is right in your heart. Don't think too much, because it makes life complicated.

    While you’re sitting all alone in your room on your bed
    And your windows are open but you won’t go out, no
    Heaven go easy on me
    While you’re sitting all alone in your room on your bed
    And your windows are open but you won’t go out, no
    Heaven go easy on me

    This verse kind of confused me. I don't quite get it. If anyone could clear it up, I'd be super happy.

    It’s damn good to have met you
    I hope that you stay
    We’re well on our way (repeat)

    He's glad to have met this person, and he hopes they stay for the ride, because they're having a good time.

    (backup) All these things are rushing by (repeat)

    All things must end darling (repeat)

    Heaven go easy on me
