Jimmy Scott – When Did You Leave Heaven? lyrics

When did you leave Heaven?
Why did they let you go?
How's everything in Heaven?
I'd like to know

Why did you trade Heaven
For all these earthly things?
Where did you leave your halo?
Where did you lose your wings?

If I kissed you
Would it be a sin?
Will they miss you?
Can you get back in?

I am only human
But you are so divine
When did you leave Heaven
Angel mine?

When did you leave Heaven
Angel mine?
