Sometimes, you have to hit rock bottom before you turn your life around. That's exactly what happened to Brantley Gilbert many years ago.

When Brantley was nineteen-years-old, he was in a near-fatal truck accident, which is what inspired "Halfway to Heaven." The lyrics take you through what happened that night and how it changed him.  He saw life flash before his eyes, and he wasn't ready for it to end. He made amends with the necessary people and started to be there for his family. The lyrics are so honest and you can hear the pain in his voice when he sings. 

"Halfway to Heaven" is off of Brantley's second studio album of the same name.  It was released in 2010 and has sold over 1 million copies.

Watch Brantley describe his accident in this emotional video.

And be sure to take a listen to the studio version below, you'll be glad you did.

LYRICS BELOW

There's a live oak tree you can still see off ol 129
You can see the scars, it's missin' bark
Where it stopped my truck that night
They say I took a swing at my best friend
For tryin to take my keys
Next thing I knew I was upside down
Thinkin this is it for me

When you see life flash before your eyes
The good the bad the wrong the right
Fade into a bright white line
Shinin' down on you
You're hangin' on by a thread
Wondering which ones your last breath
Knowing theres so much you have left to do
Live your life a better man
When you've been, halfway to heaven

First thing I did was hug my momma
I even hugged my dad
Told them both how much I love them
Never saw daddy cry like that
Started hangin' out with my little brother
Man I never missed a game
I'm in church every Sunday mornin'
I pray everyday

When you see life flash before your eyes
The good the bad the wrong the right
Fade into a bright white line
Shinin' down on you
You're hangin' on by a thread
Wonderin' which ones your last breath
Knowin' theres so much you have left to do
Live your life a better man
When you've been, halfway to heaven

I wont waste, one minute
Yeah my life's changed
And I'm gonna live it

Like I'm hangin' on by a thread
Wondering which ones my last breath
Knowin' there's so much I have left to do
I live my life a better man
I live my life a better man
Cuz I've been, halfway to heaven
