(Paul Kennerley)

Every night it's the same
I feel your heart turn cold as rain
And know that you'll be gone again
I hear the front door close
You say you got to go downtown
I guess there's someone else you've found
So why you're still coming round
Heaven only knows

Heaven only knows just why loving you should make me cry
Make me feel like I could die
That's the way it goes
Heaven only ever sees
How love's made a fool of me
I guess that's how it's meant to be but
Heaven only knows

I've heard it said that talk is cheap
But still your words they cut so deep
Lay me crying in my sleep
And the pain just grows
I don't know who's right or wrong
But all we had is dead and gone
So why you keep me hanging on
Heaven only knows

Heaven only knows just why loving you should make me cry
Make me feel like I could die
That's the way it goes
Heaven only ever sees
How love's made a fool of me
I guess that's how it's meant to be but
Heaven only knows

I'm going to turn and walk away
There's nothing left for me to say
It wouldn't change things anyway
Though, I suppose
The love I gave was always true
Well, I don't know what else to do
And how I'll ever get over you
Heaven only knows

Heaven only knows just why loving you should make me cry
Make me feel like I could die
That's the way it goes
Heaven only ever sees
How love's made a fool of me
I guess that's how it's meant to be but
Heaven only knows
