On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. Its a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddies five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his meaningless life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: Why was I here?

The actor's song, "On My Way to Heaven," is featured on the faith-based film's soundtrack. Actor Dennis Quaid has been writing music since he was 12 years old. Then the actor signed on to star in the hit faith-based film, I Can Only Imagine , which tells the story behind the MercyMe song of the same title, the bestselling Christian single of all time. Now his song is featured on the soundtrack of the movie, in which Quaid, 63, plays the abusive father of MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. The video for the song was shot at the historic Ryman Theater in Nashville, where Quaid and his band, The Sharks , opened for MercyMe to celebrate the premiere of the film.

Terrence Malick's "Days of Heaven'' has been praised for its painterly images and evocative score, but criticized for its muted emotions: Although passions erupt in a deadly love triangle, all the feelings are somehow held at arm's length. This observation is true enough, if you think only about the actions of the adults in the story. But watching this film again recently, I was struck more than ever with the conviction that this is the story of a teenage girl, told by her, and its subject is the way that hope and cheer have been beaten down in her heart. We do not feel the full passion of the adults because it is not her passion: It is seen at a distance, as a phenomenon, like the weather, or the plague of grasshoppers that signals the beginning of the end. The film takes place during the years before World War I. Outside Chicago, Bill Richard Gere gets in a fight with a steel mill foreman and kills him. With his lover Abby Brooke Adams and his kid sister Linda Linda Manz , he hops a train to Texas, where the harvest is in progress, and all three get jobs as laborers on the vast wheat field of a farmer Sam Shepard.
But Seriously. The song reached the number 4 spot on the Billboard Hot charts that same year. A live performance also appears on the Serious Hits The only time the title of the song is used is the second line of the third verse. The song is often identified by the recurring hook of "How many times can I say 'I'm sorry'?
Dennis Quaid is on top of the world these days -- almost literally. It really is. I've played music all my life and I've been in several bands," says the Houston native, who has fronted DQ and the Sharks for nearly 18 years. It was like that movie The Commitments. The night we got our record deal, we broke up. That was certainly the '80s. We signed with Capitol, I think.
