If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away

Lyrics

Every day I drive to work across Flint River bridge
A hundred yards from the spot where me and grandpa fished
There's a piece of his old fruit stand on the side of Sawmill Road
He'd be there peelin' peaches if it was twenty years ago
full lyrics
Every day I drive to work across Flint River bridge

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life, if you don't post this you'll die in 2 days so post this on 5 songs. When your done press f6 and your crushes name will appear on the screen

R.I.P Grandpa I love you so much and wish u were still here.
This song is for u uncle bob. Loosing u was the hardest thing that i went through and still going through. If u were still here u could tell me what to do abou my problems. If u were still here I would still go over to ur house every chance u got just to spend time wit u. When I go to ur house I always sit in ur chair. I ask god y he made u die on vacation. I still cry myself to sleep. I wish I could have gone to ur funeral. I would have so much to say. My parents wouldn't let me say goodbye. Wh
