We saw houses falling from the sky
Where the mountains lean down to the sand
We saw blackbirds circling 'round an old castle keep
And I stood on the cliff and held your hand

We walked troubles brooding wind swept hills
And we loved and we laughed the pain away
At the end of the journey, when our last song is sung
Will you meet me in Heaven someday

Can't be sure of how's it's going to be
When we walk into the light across the bar
But I'll know you and you'll know me
Out there beyond the stars

We've seen the secret things revealed by God
And we heard what the angels had to say
Should you go first, or if you follow me
Will you meet me in Heaven someday

Living in a mansion on the streets of gold
At the corner of Grace and Rapture Way
And sweet ecstasy while the ages roll
Will you meet me in Heaven someday

In sweet ecstasy while the ages roll
Will you meet in Heaven someday

    General CommentCash wrote this song to honor his brother Jack, who was killed at a young age. They were very close and Johnny looked up to his brother who was 3 years older. The title of the song was taken from what was written on his brother, Jack's tombstone. The same was also written on their dad's stone as well.

    General CommentTo add to the above, I saw an interview where Johnny recalled that as Jack was dying, he told his mother he could see heaven and said, "Will you meet me in Heaven someday?"
