Lyrics to song Halfway to Heaven by Brantley Gilbert

Verse 1
There's a live oak tree you can still see off all 129
You can see the scars its missing bark
Where it stopped my truck that night
They say I took a swing at my best friend
For trying to take my keys
Next thing I knew I was upside down
Thinking this is it for me

Chorus:
When you see life flash before your eyes
The good the bad the wrong the right
Fade into a bright white line
Shining down on you
Your hanging on by a thread
Wondering which ones your last breath
Knowing there's so much you have left to do
Live your life a better man
When you've been, halfway to heaven

Verse 2
First thing I did was hug my mom
I even hugged my dad
Told them both how much I love them
Never saw daddy cry like that
Started hanging out with my little brother
Man I never missed a game
I'm in church every Sunday morning
I pray everyday

Chorus:
When you see life flash before your eyes
The good the bad the wrong the right
Fade into a bright white line
Shining down on you
Your hanging on by a thread
Wondering which ones your last breath
Knowing there's so much you have left to do
Live your life a better man
When you've been, halfway to heaven

Outro
I won't waste, one minute
Yeah my life's changed
And I'm going to live it
Like I'm hanging on by a thread
Wondering which ones my last breath
Knowing there's so much I have left to do
I live my life a better man
I live my life a better man
'cause I've been, halfway to heaven
