“Ships of Heaven” – performed by Blackhawk

Don’t cry for me when I’m gone
Keep the faith and be strong
‘Cause through it all I’ve been blessed
I faced my fears
And I’ve passed the test
So when you look up in the sky
On a sunny day
Imagine me drifting away

I’ll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You’ll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

Remember all the times we had
Some were great and some were sad
But you know that in the end
Our love was stronger than when we began
No unforgiven sins and no regrets
Just the times of our lives that we’ll
Never Forget

I’ll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You’ll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

I’ll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You’ll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

When the tide rolls out for the
Last time
You’ll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day
I come sailing back to you

On the ships of heaven
I come sailing back to you…
