I looked at your face
I saw that all the love had died
I saw that we had forgotten to take the time

I, I saw that you couldn't care less about what you do
You couldn't care less about the lies
You couldn't find the time to cry

We forgot about love
We forgot about faith
We forgot about trust
We forgot about us

Chorus:
Now our love's floating out the window
Our love's floating out the back door
Our love's floating up in the sky,
In heaven, where it began
Back in God's hands

You said that you had said all that you had to say
You say: baby, it's the end of the day

We gave a lot
But it wasn't enough
We got so tired
That we just gave up

Chorus:
Now our love's floating out the window
Our love's floating out the back door
Our love's floating up in the sky,
In heaven, where it began
Back in God's hands, back in God's hands

Bridge:
We didn't respect it
We went and neglect it
We didn't deserve it
But I never expected this

Our love floated out the window
Our love floated out the back door
Our love floated up in the sky,
To heaven, it's part of a plan
It's back in God's hands, back in God's hands

Oh we didn't last, it's a thing of the past
No we didn't understand just what we had
Oh I want it back, just what we had
I want it back, just what we had

    This really hits home to me. I am going through a marriage separation and would love for my wife to listen intently on these lyrics. Let God decide, not the lawyers...

    The last part of Ecclesiastes 4:12 says : And a threefold cord cannot quickly be torn in two. 1 John 4:8 - 8 He that does not love has not come to know God, because God is love.

    God is the Central Stand OF Love that Bonds A man and A women 2 seprate Strands but if they Forget about Love Forget about God then the are no Longer Bonded By Love but are only 2 strand Cord that can easily be torn into where as a 3 strand Cord cant be quickly torn in 2.
