The Story Behind "Tears In Heaven" by Eric Clapton

yesterday, while over thinking in the shower, this song suddenly hit me. in the past few years, i had lost people who are precious to me and i guess i was feeling a little emotional? this song brings comfort when you really understand the meaning behind it. you know what people said don't you? you only understand the song when you are really in need of it.

anyway, i know about this song a long time ago but its only today that i decided to read more about it.


Eric and his boy, Conor [source]

here is the story.



Conor Clapton, a boy born out of the marriage of Eric Clapton and Lory Del Santo on 21 August 1986 died after falling from a 53-story high apartment and landed on a 4-story roof top. he was only four and a half when he died and it was the day when Eric wanted to bring him out to the zoo.

it was all an accident but you got to watch the video for more information.

Eric retreated and the song "Tears in Heaven" was created for the loss of his son. it is really a touching song when you finally understand the words and his story.



"Tears in Heaven"

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I'll find my way
Through night and day,
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,
There's peace I'm sure,
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

Appreciate the people around you. you never know when they might be taken away from you. be kind to one another because you never know when you can get the chance to do that again.

R.I.P Conor Clapton.
