  • Lyrics: There’s no road straight to Heaven No highway for your soul. No secret little shortcut you can take. There’s a thousand twists and turns and detours you can make But there’s no road straight to Heaven from L.A. There’s a light house in the harbor With an angel standing guard, Sending guiding beams dancing across the waves. But if you hit troubled waters, start prayin’ to be saved. Cause there’s no road straight to Heaven from L.A. Bridge: Money, fame or a fast car won’t help, No, no, You have to get there all by yourself. There’s a man turning the corner with stars still in his eyes, The path to all his dreams is still unpaved. His map reads Arizona, it’s the next stop on his way, ‘Cause there’s no road straight to Heaven from L.A. Optional: Repeat bridge Repeat V1 Tag: Oh, there’s no road straight to Heaven from L.A.
