Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
Cause you've flown away, so far away

Never had I imagined
You're living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together (together)
One sweet day (And all that I know is I'll wait patiently to see you in Heaven)

Darling, I never showed you (No, no, no, no, no, no) {I never showed you}
Assumed you'd always be there (Always, always be there) {I thought you'd always be there}
I took your presence for granted
But I always cared (But I always cared) and I miss the love we shared

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we''ve lost along the way (Lost along the way)
And I know eventually we'll be together (I know, I know)
One sweet day (And all that I know is I'll wait patiently to see you in Heaven)

Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to a brighter day
Yeah, yeah
Lord, I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way (Like so many)
And I know eventually we'll be together (Yes, I know, I know we'll be together)
One sweet day

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven (I'll see you eventually)
Like so many friends we've lost along the way (I know you're looking down from Heaven)
And I know eventually we''ll be together (Yes, we will)
One sweet day (One sweet day, whoa...)

And all that I know is I'll wait patiently to see you in Heaven

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
