A Better Place to Be

A Better Place

A Better Place to Be

I see all kinds of faces,

I haven’t seen forever,

It really is a shame it took this to get together.

My family’s all around me,

My favorite music’s playing,

They say the nicest things,

I guess that goes without saying.

I want to shout out,

I want them to see,

I’ve got a better place to be,

A better place to be.

The aroma of each flower,

Begins to fill the air,

All my favorite photos,

Are scattered everywhere.

The photos tell a story of who I used to be,

The conversations center on memories of me.

I want to shout out,

I want them to see,

I’ve got a better place to be,

A better place to be.

Heaven is my home now,

There’s no better place to be,

I wish I could tell them,

Or really make them see.

There’s no more pain or sorrow,

My fears have gone away,

My time is no longer measured,

By a year, a month or day.

I want to shout out,

I want them to see,

I’ve got a better place to be,

The best home for me.
