Where are we now? You're almost in Heaven
Where are we now? You're almost in Heaven
Where are we now? In Heaven, you're almost in Heaven
You're almost in Heaven, you're almost in Heaven, in Heaven

On behalf of her love she no longer sleeps
Life had no longer meaning, nothing to make her stay
She sold her soul away

I held you tight to me, you slipped away
You promised to return to me and I believed, I believed

After the night he died I wept my tears until they dried
But the pain stayed the same, I didn't want him to die all in vain
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
I'll make them bleed down at my feet

I held you tight to me, you slipped away
You promised to return to me and I believed

Sometimes I wonder could I have known about their true intentions?
As the pain stayed the same I'm going to haunt them down all the way
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
One by one they were surprised

I held you tight to me, you slipped away
You promised to return to me and I believed

Where are we now? You're almost in Heaven
Where are we now? You're almost in Heaven
Where are we now? In Heaven, you're almost in Heaven
You're almost in Heaven, you're almost in Heaven, in Heaven

I held you tight to me, you slipped away
You promised to return to me and I believed
