  Promise me you'll be waiting
When it's my time to go.
And you'll be there to help me
Teach me what I need to know.

Im sure I will need your help.
I'm scared for what is there.
How do I know it is better
And what do I do to prepare.

What is it like up there?
Or where ever it is we go.
Will I feel happy or at peace?
I really just want to know.

I need to know what happens
When I finally leave this place.
Are there people there who love me?
Or am I just another face?

Is there really something out there
Beyond this world we're part of?
Or is it just another fairytale?
There's no messages from above.

I would really like to know
What will happen when I die.
So I can know what to do
Before I say goodbye.

If there is something bigger out there,
I would like to know for sure.
That I will belong in Heaven.
Because right now I don't feel secure.

I don't know where I'll be going.
And I'm not sure if I believe
All the stuff they tell me in church.
But I don't want to be naive

Sometimes I sit and pray.
Not necessarily for me
But for my son and his well being.
But does He hear my plea?

I don't want to keep my son
From being a better person.
So how do I show him the way
When I haven't even picked one?
