Got a picture of your house and you're standing by the door
It's black and white and faded and it's looking pretty worn
I see the factory that I worked silhouetted in the back
The memories are gray but, man, they're really coming back
I don't need to be the king of the world
As long as I'm the hero of this little girl

Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say

How I love the way you move and the sparkle in your eyes
There's a color deep inside them like a blue suburban sky
When I come home late at night and you're in bed asleep
I wrap my arms around you so I can feel you breath
I don't need to be a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan

Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
We'll find our way, yeah

Now the lights are going out, along the boulevard
Memories come rushing back and it makes it pretty hard
I've got nowhere left to go, no one really cares
I don't know what to do but I'm never giving up on you

Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends say
I know we're gonna find a way

Heaven, oh, oh, oh
Heaven, oh, oh, oh
Heaven, it's not too far away
Oh, oh, oh, yeah

    General CommentIt's about a guy so in love with a girl, but her friends think that he's not good enough for her. He's telling her that he will do whatever it takes to give her a good life. As long as she believes in him, they can be happy. I love this song too, it is such a classic.

    General CommentFirstly, Poison does not suck. Some of their stuff like, defines the pop culture that was hair metal. The music was amusing, pop-rockish kinda 80s glam, and if you like that, then you should LOVE Poison.

    Secondly, to ^eceF. and AC/DC fan, the little girl thing does sound kinda weird. BUT if you think about it, he's kinda talking to the photo, so I'm thinking that the "little girl" is the love of his life, when she was a little girl in the picture. And now he's all grown up and looking at her past, kinda thing. Make any sense to you guys?

    General CommentThe one thing I'm confused about is in the first pre-chorus, he says "I don't need to be the king of the world, as long as I'm the hero of this LITTLE GIRL".

    Little girl...maybe his daughter? Because "baby girl" might mean loved girlfriend or wife, but "little girl" is not at all your girlfriend or wife.

    Beautiful and amazing song either way, just curious about that part.

    General CommentYea I agree with ^exeF I love this song but have two different opinions about the meaning of it. The first was of a rock star or dad or some idol to this little girl whether child or teen and she's depressed but her idol gives her hope no matter what hard ships gets in her way that she will be truly happy aka Heaven's not too far away and the second meaning is like everyone else is saying that its a wife or gf with a boyfriend or husband trying to make ends meet and proves himself worthy for this woman even though no one else agrees he is to her.
