For a little while,
We know what heartache is
And the feel the pain the world can sometimes bring
For a little while,
We cry in the night without a single song to sing
But one day all will change
There will be no more stormy rain
Than at last we will rest forever more
So if you're in the valley (if you're in the valley now)
And life is so unkind (life is so unkind)
And if your tears keep falling (if your tears keep falling)
From your tired eyes (from your eyes)
Your burden seem so heavy (your burden seem so heavy now)
And it's hard to smile (so hard to smile)
You must remember (you better remember)
It's only for a while

For a little while, (well)
You lose someone you love
And you miss the time together that you shared
For a little while,
You feel all alone and scared
With no one there to hold
Oh the nights get long and cold
But it won't last; it will pass in time
So if you're in the valley (if you're in the valley now)
And life is so unkind (life is so unkind)
And if your tears keep falling (if your tears keep falling)
From your tired eyes (from your eyes)
Your burden seem so heavy (your burden seem so heavy now)
And it's hard to smile (so hard to smile)
Oh, You gotta remember (you better remember)
It's only for a while

    Awesome, I just love anita baker and this song. The words are so on time at 55 years old and in this time as I go through the things that life are showing me. She sings the heck out of this (And every song) but the works are so meaningful and she sings with such felling and meaning.
