There are few songs that I have come across that symbolizes a state of mind. They lock your life at a specific moment and never let you forget that space in time. Never have I encountered a song that symbolizes an entire life until now.

This song (by Yoko Kanno performed by Steve Conte for the anime Wolfs Rain) does just that. It symbolizes an entire life that only leads you to more questions.

If you have ever wanted to accomplish something so badly but you seem to fall just short.
Or, if you have known loss but you have kept striving forward and you really don't know why.
If your life is more than just the clothes on your back or how much "bling" you have around your neck.

then this song is for you.

This is what music should be.

Performer: Steve Conte
Composer: Yoko Kanno (w00t!~)
Title: Heaven's Not Enough

Heaven's not enough
if when you get there...
just another blue
and heaven's not enough
you think you've found it
and it loses you

you've thought of all there is
but not enough
and it loses you in a cloud

"there" most everything is nothin'
that it seems
"where" you see the things you only wanna see

I'd fly away
to a higher plane
to say words I resist
to float away
to sigh
to breathe.... forget

and heaven's not enough
if when I'm there I don't remember you
and heaven does enough
you think you know it
and it uses you

I saw so many things
but like a dream
always losing me in a cloud

cause I couldn't cry
cause I turned away
couldn't see the score
didn't know the pain
of leaving yesterday really far behind
in another life
in another dream
by a different name
gave it all away
for a memory
and a quiet lie
and I felt the face
of a cold tonight
still don't know the score
but I know the pain
of leaving everything really far behind
and if I could cry
and if I could live what truth I did then take me there
heaven goodbye
