Lyrics

Heaven's Light

Written By: Joe Putman

Twenty years old and scared half to death
Just became a father, he takes a deep breath
Not a dime to his name with no master plan
But he takes his baby in his trembling hands
And he cradles his head when he hears him cry
With a smile on his face, looks up to the sky and says…

- Chorus -
Heaven’s light is shining down
This world is fading all around
Call me crazy but right now all I can see
Is Heaven’s light shining down on me

He walks through the door, another wasted day
Just a lousy interview and a pile of bills to pay
His wife stands beside him, she gives him her hand
Says, “Don’t worry baby. You’ll always be my man.”
Be thankful for our love, you know we’ll get by
As he pulls her tighter, he lifts up his eyes and says…

- Chorus -

- Bridge -
Life’ll back you to the wall
You wander if you’ll make it, if you’ll stand or you’ll fall
But don’t struggle so hard with things so small
You miss all the miracles, the miracle of it all

Twenty years old, heading out on his own
The boy packed his things while his father looked on
They laughed at some stories ‘bout the troubles they’d seen
The boy just smiled, said, “I wouldn’t change a thing”
I thank God each day for mother and you
And the things you taught me every trial we went through

- Chorus -

Big Enough

Written By: Joe Putman

People say I’m not going anywhere
Just a hometown boy with no big plans
Maybe they’re right but I don’t care
There’s one thing, girl that you need to understand
Life here may be all I’ve known
But I’m a man who knows what he wants
And I want you girl, take me by the hand

- Chorus -
My dreams are big enough
To build a life for the two of us
To hold onto if things get rough
Our love’ll get us through
I’ve got dreams big enough for two
Big enough for me and you

Some folks say, “Get out and see the world”
Follow your heart to where it leads
But my heart leads straight to you girl
And I think this place has everything we need
To start a family and raise our kids
The way my mother and father did
That’s worth more than the whole world to me

- Chorus -

- Bridge -
When you count your blessings
At the end of the day
Love is all that matters anyway

- Chorus -
