  15. karen arp +brian holloway says:

    fresno CaliforniaI came by today to see you
    Oh I had to let you know
    If I knew the last time that I held you was the last time
    I’d have held you, and never let go

    Oh, it’s kept me awake nights, wondering
    I lie in the dark, just asking why
    I’ve always been told
    You won’t be called home
    Until it’s your time

    I guess heaven was needing a hero
    Somebody just like you
    Brave enough to stand up
    For what you believe
    And follow it through
    When I try to make it make sense in my mind
    The only conclusion I come to
    Is heaven was needing a hero
    Like you

    I remember the last time I saw you
    Oh, you held your head up proud
    I laughed inside
    When I saw how you were standing out in the crowd
    Your such a part of who I am
    Now that part will just be void
    No matter how much I need you now
    Heaven needed you more

    Cause heaven was needing a hero
    Somebody just like you
    Brave enough to stand up
    For what you believe
    And follow it through
    When I try to make it make sense in my mind
    The only conclusion I come to
    Is heaven was needing a hero
    Like you

    Yes, Heaven was needing a hero
    and that’s you
