JIM PETERIK - GRAMMY® AWARD WINNING SONGWRITER

LATEST NEWS

COMING SOON

Today is the world premier of the video of “Proof Of Heaven” – the song that Dennis DeYoung and I wrote that is included on my soon-to-be-released Jim Peterik and World Stage album, “Winds Of Change.”

The video itself was produced and shot by Greg Bizzaro assisted by Jon Bizzaro at his new Soundstage. Kristie Schram was busy shooting stills and inspiring the best in us.

The band that backs up Dennis and me includes one of the incredible guitarists from Dennis’ own band, August Zadra, Ed Breckenfeld on drums, my son Colin Peterik on keyboards and Kevin Campbell on bass.

Can you tell that Dennis and I are having a blast singing this song, reveling in the many years we’ve known each other and celebrating the musical camaraderie and mutual respect we’ve developed over the years? The fun we are having is unmistakable!

The lyric of this song is certainly meaningful in today’s world: looking for the best in everyone, the Heaven right here on earth.

And no, we are not performing in front of a Green Screen. We are standing before an incredible array of LED lights on vast screens onto which Greg and his team played worldly and other-worldly images. Bravo!

Dennis and I truly hope our song inspires you to look for signs of heaven “in every stranger’s face.”

Peace.  Jim & Dennis

PROOF OF HEAVEN

Dennis DeYoung and Jim Peterik: Music and lyrics

TELL ME ALL YOU KNOW
WHISPER IN MY EAR
THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE
WERE DYING ALL TO HEAR

I PROMISE NOT TO TELL
WELL MAYBE JUST MY WIFE
PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS MYSTERY
THEY CALL THE AFTERLIFE

CAUSE I BELIEVE I BELIEVE
I TELL MY SELF EVERYDAY
BUT WHEN I LOOK AROUND I SEE
A WORLD IN DISARRAY
BUT I KEEP ON HOPING I KEEP ON HOPING

WE SEARCH FOR PROOF OF HEAVEN
WE SEEK THE SACRED LIGHT
WE KNEEL WITH SAINTS AND SINNERS
HOPING FOR THE BLACK AND WHITE

WE LOOK FOR GUARDIAN ANGELS
WE PRAY FOR SAVING GRACE
WE SEARCH FOR PROOF OF HEAVEN
IN EVERY STRANGERS FACE

AND TELL ME ONE MORE THING
WHY ALL THIS MYSTERY
ARE THERE ANY MORE LIKE US
OUT IN DISTANT GALAXIES

CAUSE EVERYONE I KNOW
FROM HERE TO WHO KNOWS WHERE
WANTS TO KNOW THE REASON WHY
OH LIFE CAN BE UNFAIR

CAUSE I BELIEVE I BELIEVE
I TELL MYSELF EVERYDAY
BUT WHEN I LOOK AROUND
I SEE A WORLD THAT’S GONE ASTRAY
STILL I KEEP ON HOPING LIVING COPING

WE SEARCH FOR PROOF OF HEAVEN
WE SEEK THE SACRED LIGHT
WE KNEEL WITH SAINTS AND SINNERS
HOPING FOR THE BLACK AND WHITE

WE LOOK FOR GUARDIAN ANGELS
WE PRAY FOR SAVING GRACE
WE SEARCH FOR PROOF OF HEAVEN
IN EVERY STRANGERS FACE

TIAN TIAN TIAN TIAN
PARADISO CIELO
PARADIS

CAN YOU SEE THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN
RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES
CAN YOU FEEL THE HOPE INSIDE US
SHINNING SHINNING

CAN’T YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF MUSIC
THROUGH THE STREETS OF PARADISE
CAN’T YOU HEAR THE BELLS OF FREEDOM
CHIMING CHIMING

WE SEARCH FOR PROOF OF HEAVEN
IN EACH AND EVERY FACE
WE LOOK FOR SIGNS OF MERCY
AND PRAY FOR SAVING GRACE

I SWEAR BY ALL THATS HOLY
IF WERE TO RISE AGAIN
WE’LL FIND THAT OUR SALVATION
IS ALWAYS FOUND WITHIN

WE’LL RISE AGAIN
