If it was my last day on earth, treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent, so pure, with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest, be what I wanna be

Last day on earth I tell my momma, dont cry
I'll see my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk
The crippled can walk but for now Heaven's in New York

Heaven's in New York
I need a ticket to New York

First thing I'd do is go back in time
Take the Twin Towers, put it back in the skyline
Tell my girl, two wrongs still dont make a right
Make love for the last time under the candlelight

Pick up my homies at the gentleman club
After that hit the pub, reminisce on the high school days
Man, I sucked as a quarterback remember getting sacked
Man, I almost broke my back

If it was my last day on earth, treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent, so pure, with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest, be what I wanna be

Last day on earth I tell my girl, don't cry
I'm with my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk
The crippled can walk but for now Heaven's in New York

Heaven's in New York
I need a ticket to New York
Heaven's in New York
Heaven's in New York

I'd tell the man, give the people a tax break
Kids, stop shootin, I can't sing it no more ways
I can't take the money with me so I caught a movie
Favorite actress, Angelina Jolie

Favorite singer got to be Marley
Turn up the bass and move to the styling
I can't go without reading my daughter a bedtime story
The heavens is calling

If it was my last day on earth, treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent, so pure, with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest, be what I wanna be

Last day on earth I'd tell my homies, don't cry
I'm with my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk
The crippled can walk but for now Heaven's in New York

Heaven's in New York
I need a ticket to New York

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I feel no fear for you are with me, yeah
So tell my loved ones, please don't cry
Cause if doves can fly so can I

If it was my last day on earth, treat it like my first
Go out the way I came in
So innocent, so pure, with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest, be what I wanna be

Last day on earth I'd tell my homies don't frown
I'm with my daddy in paradise
Where the blind can see, the mute can talk
The crippled can walk but for now Heaven's in New York

Heavens in New York
I need a ticket to New York
Heavens in New York
Heavens in New York

Yeah, this one goes out to all my refugees
That leave the land where they from
And come to the land of the free
But dont forget once you get that dream
Take it back to your country and give em a piece of that inspiration

I need a ticket to New York
