​O Heaven (How You've Changed Me)

This song is by Melissa Manchester and appears on the album Bright Eyes (1974) and on the album The Essence of Melissa Manchester (1997).

And the one thing You taught Me clearly to see
Is that the miracle is in My soul

I used to dream of heaven
As the home of the final down
If You were good You went to heaven
If You were bad You went to town
I used to see a heaven
As a snow kingdom cold as lead
Sickly sweet angels were there to greet Me
They put a bad number on My head,

And I said, O heaven how You changed Me
And the one thing You taught Me clearly to see
Is that the miracle is in My soul

I was a full-time sinner
And delighted to be known as One
What was the use in living goodness
When being bad was much more fun
I had a soul on fire
I put the passions of the mind to shame
And all the time a voice had whispered,
Girl, You're playing with the devils game,

And I said, O sweet heaven,
Oh sweet heaven in My soul
Oh, it's a miracle, the miracle is in My soul

Now I see; now I can see beginnings
And I believe in the poor man's wealth
The holy Ones rolled across the sky to say
Yes, they rolled across the sky to say
Oh, they rolled across the sky to say,
You know You're not so bad Yourself!

O heaven how You changed Me
And the one thing You taught Me clearly to see
Is that the miracle is in My soul
