need words to karen peck song "I Wanna Know How It Feels"
Posted:  26 Jul 2006 16:54
Verse 1

My momma and daddy talked about going home
Since I was just a babe on their knees
They said that nothing compared to what was waiting up there how one day we would finally be free
Well, I've never seen it but I keep on believing it will be a place like I've never known
I keep my eyes on the sky 'cause my soul wants to fly
Lord, my heart is ready to go


I want to know how it feels
To make my way down the streets of gold
I want to know how it feels
To have a talk with the saints of old
I want to know what it's like
To rest my feet by the River of Life
I've heard of heaven and I know that it's real
I want to know how it feels

Verse 2

Sometimes I get weary from this life that I live
It seems that peace is something I'll never find
I try to lighten my load when all that I've got to show is seven hundred things on my mind
Well, I'm seeing visions of a crystal clear river
where sin's forgotten without a trace
More than I've ever dreamed my eyes long to see the look of love on my Savior's face
