Halfway to Heaven #BrantleyGilbert

I have been listening to Brantley Gilbert radio on Pandora A LOT lately and last night I heard the song Halfway to Heaven.  The lyrics reminded me so much of Dillan’s strokes and near death experience that changed my life upside down and sideways.  I’m so thankful that BG  used his mad writing skills to pen such a beautiful song:

Halfway to Heaven

There’s a live oak tree you can still see off ol 129
you can see the scars its missin bark
where it stopped my truck that night
they say I took a swing at my best friend
for tryin to take my keys
next thing I knew I was upside down
thinkin this is it for me

when you see life flash before your eyes
the good the bad the wrong the right
fade into a bright white line
shinin down on you
your hangin on by a thread
wondering which ones your last breath
knowing theres so much you have left to do
live your life a better man
when youve been, halfway to heaven

first thing I did was hug my momma
I even hugged my dad
told them both how much I love them
never saw daddy cry like that
started hangin out with my little brother
man I never missed a game
I’m in church every sunday mornin
I pray everyday

when you see life flash before your eyes
the good the bad the wrong the right
fade into a bright white line
shinin down on you
your hangin on by a thread
wonderin which ones your last breath
knowin theres so much you have left to do
live your life a better man
when you’ve been, halfway to heaven

I wont waste, one minute
yeah my life’s changed
and I’m gonna live it

like I’m hangin on by a thread
wondering which ones my last breath
knowin theres so much I have left to do
I live my life a better man
I live my life a better man
cuz I’ve been, halfway to heaven
