Pat Boone style song
Based on his interview on studio ten (Australia)
his wife died this year, and he said, Half of my Heart is in Heaven
Boom ... 24 hrs later I wrote this

Line 3 of verse - please let me know what is grammatically correct - cos im not sure if its both, or one of them

Half of my Heart is in Heaven

CH
Half of my heart is in Heaven
Half of my soul is gone
Half of my smile is missing
How do I carry on?

V
My Love, My Love, I miss you so
The nights - are as bad - as the days
I walk full of empty tomorrows. (I walk filled with empty tomorrows)
The Darkness is here to stay

CH
Half of my heart is in Heaven
Half of my soul is gone
Half of my smile is missing
How do I carry on?

V2
My Friends, My Friends, they try to help
I want them to all - go away
I see them aching to understand
But I know what everyone says ….

CH
Half of my heart is in Heaven
Half of my soul is gone
Half of my smile is missing
How do I carry on?

How
Do
I
Car-ry
Onnnnnnnnn?

Powerful lyrics of grief and loss. That sort of pain never really goes away and even though most people do find a way to carry on, it's a struggle that is always with you. That final question needs to be delivered in as anguished a voice as possible...

Oooh, I didn’t know his wife had died. These lyrics surely express exactly how he is feeling. Very sweet couple. I had such a crush on him in “April Love.” As a kid, I had crushes on the leading man or I didn’t want to watch the movie. Always a romantic. Smile
