Eric Clapton: Tears in Heaven

Eric Clapton - 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

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 knee
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
Will 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
Tekst og musik (1992)
Eric Clapton & Will Jennings


Den 20. marts 1991 faldt Conor Clapton ud af et vindue fra 53. etage i New York. Hans far, Eric Clapton, skrev denne dybt personlige sang for at bearbejde sorgen efter den 4½-årige drengs død.

Elsker bare den sang... :D

En meget smuk sang, ja.

Det personlige sættes så også i perspektiv af at det egentlig ikke var meningen at sangen skulle indspilles og udgives. En ven, Lili Zanuck, overtalte ham dog, med den argumentation at det kunne hjælpe nogen. Og det er jo netop blevet en meget spillet sang, bl.a. ved begravelser.
