Tears in Heaven
Eric Clapton Lyrics


Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door, there's peace, I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you be the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

Lyrics
Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know, I don't belong
Here in heaven
Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way
Through night and day
'Cause I know, I just can't stay
Here in heaven
Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please
Beyond the door
There's peace, I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven
Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know, I don't belong
Here in heaven
'Cause I know, I don't belong
Here in heaven
Thank you

Rick Therrien

Oh man this is a beautiful song and I relate to it personally.
I just lost my Mother whom i was taking care of the last six years or so to cancer.
I had to make all the medical decisions and I tried to fulfil her last wish which was to come home from the hospital and spend her last days at home and with me.
She had a fall in the bathroom went to the hospital the next day and passed away 26 days later.
I was not ready for such a thing we had just talked about how I was willing to care for her and her needs for the rest of her life and I told her I would be more then happy to take care of her for as long as she was here.
I devoted myself to my Mom and her needs and was up every morning at two thirty am just to make sure she was okay and did not need anything.
I chose to do everything for her and gave up any thought of a relationship or having friends over or anything happily.
My Mom did not want anyone to feel bad for her so it was just me and her for many years.
I tried to make the best possible choices to get her home which in the beginning was totally an option.
Then she was taking kemo therapy and the second day went unresponsive but could move slightly.
Then it just kept getting worse the more I tried to get her care.
I watched my bright and beautiful Mother slowly pass away no matter how hard I tried to help her.
In the end I had to give consent to terminate my own Mamas life support.
I had to do the same thing with my adopted Grandfather at age sixteen and it was a major contributing factor to me having a mental break down.
In less then a month I had to face my Mom going from needing a little care for s fall to total deterioration and finally her passing.
But I just seen this song scrolling and I remember when this song came out when I was young and I use to always sit in my window ledge playing with my toy cars with the window open a bit and we lived on the fourth floor of an apartment.
My Mom knew I played in my window in my bedroom and she came in one day frantic when she seen me in my window and was almost crying and she came over and grabbed me hugged me put me on my bed right beside my window and she made me promise to God I would never play in my window every again.
I did and she told me I had to keep my word.
So I asked why and she told me about Claptons sorrowful loss of his son from falling from their window.
After that I always remembered this song and how my Mom just may have saved my life.
But I have not heard this song in many years and just found it again and that memory came flooding back and it made me realize I had an Angel for a Mother.
She had to unfortunately give custody of me to my adopted Grandfather because my dad had just left my Mom and me and she had went through losing her Mom and Dad and a niece and her baby to a home fire, she lost her sister after she jumped out a window because the fire that took my Moms niece and her little baby daughter just happened and she was in an apartment and someone pulled the fire alarm as a joke and she panicked because of the trauma of the fire and fear of burning to death.
She broke her neck and she passed away instantly.
Then if all that was not enough her sister was stabbed to death by her boyfriend while he was on LSD and they got into a fight and he grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed her 48 times.
So she went through a lot and wound up hospitalized.
I still break down crying about losing her and having to handle being the one who had to chose to end things.
When I seen this song I was flooded with such Love for my Mom because I can still feel her hugging me when she told me about Claptons son.
My Mom loved me so much that when I cried visiting her even though she could hardly move she would reach her hand out to hold mine because she knew I would take it rough and she knew about me having to take life support from my Grandfather and how much it effected me so she was more worried about me then herself as she lay there slowing crossing over.
But like this song says “but I must be strong, snd carry on” and it’s hard to believe that I am sitting here typing this about my Mom but life is fragile and my Mom knew that I loved her very much so I hope she did not worry and worry about me when in such a state because I know if she could have she would have.
I am very alone now I lost my true love and soulmate to my own selfish drug addiction plus all my friends respect home possessions health and mind and now my Mom.
My dad disowned me because he knew I did needles and thought I was a total loser and he won’t talk to me even after I messaged him about Mom.
I have no money for food or smokes or pot or anything other then my rent and my wifi bill.
I have to use support programs that offer small lunches to get enough food everyday for my lunch and for dinner.
I have had to quit drinking coffee my pop milk and having my snacks I had to quit smoking all of a sudden quit pot and having any comforts or pleasures or anything at all.
I’ve lost so much weight I can put my thumb and index finger around my bicep and touch them.
I can see and feel every bone in my chest and back and ribs I was literally starving to death until I was able to get lunches.
But I’ve lost all that weight so the food I eat only sustains me enough to Leto from losing weight but put any on for that off need lots of extra supplements.
So life has taken a sharp 180 left hand turn and I am in a pretty bad way.
But I know I have to be here for my little buddy my Chihuahua dog and can’t wind up in hospital cause he really is sensitive and I dread to think of what he would do without me.
He won’t even so much as eat or go outside without me.
Anyway this is long so I’ll end here.
In closing God bless you all and please remember to hug your loved ones extra because life can take some unpleasant turns with the ones you love.
I love you Mama and always will you save me from my own addiction and healed me from the suffering I face from the past.
I will see you again God willing and I pray your in heaven with the ones you love.

Most definitely the case I can remember when this happened years ago.such a sad situation. Completely breaks my heart for this to happen to him and the family. But like you say something bad happened and Eric grew from this and made us a beautiful song. Thank you Eric Clapton.

My beautiful 2 year old son passed away less than two weeks ago. I want this played at his funeral. I'm totally devastated and this song makes me cry like a little girl. I miss my little man so much. 😭

I lost my wife 2 weeks ago from covid-19. The feeling of having to watch the love of your life slowly choke to death, alone in icu and not being able to do anything about it...is indescribably horrific and it tore a hole in me. She tried to call me while I was at work, before they sedated her because knew she wasn't coming back. I missed her calls due to the poor reception where I work. She left her sister a message to give me saying "tell trinity that I love him.". I loved her more than I ever thought I could love someone. And although my heart still beats... I died with her in icu that day. RIP Kathryn Bernard. I hope you know how much you meant to me. I miss you so much, it literally hurts me. I would have done anything to rewind time long enough to have been able to answer when you called. If I could only go back in time long enough to give you one last painful kiss.
