Rick Price – Heaven Knows lyrics

She's always on my mind
From the time I wake up,
Till I close my eyes.
She's everywhere I go
She's all I know.

And though she's so far away,
It just keeps getting stronger everyday
And even now she's gone
I'm still holding on

So tell me, where do I start
'Coz it's breakin' my heart
Don't wanna let her go


Maybe my love will come back someday
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
But only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope & pray
'Coz heaven knows.

My friends keep telling me
That if you really love her,
You've gotta set her free
And if she returns in time
I'll know she's mine

But tell me, where do I start
'Coz it's breakin' my heart
Don't wanna let her go

(Repeat Chorus except last line)


'Coz heaven knows
Why I live in despair
'Coz wide awake or dreamin',
I know she's never there
And all the time I act so brave,
I'm shakin' inside
Why does it hurt me so?

(Repeat Chorus)

Heaven knows... Heaven knows.

    I really don't know if I'm gonna love or hate this song. It always makes me fuss whenever I hear this playing. I become nostalgic and honestly I really want to hold on to my past experience where me and my girl were respecting each other. I thought we will be forever but I woke one day and she's no longer mine. Anyway, she never became mine and will never be. The song simply says God has the only way if the person you once loved will be with you someday. We have to move on and enjoy what we've gained.

    I love this song not because I can relate to it but because this song is really good. You don't have to experience the same love story in order for you to actually relate to this song; we all have that one person that we think of everyday but then, we don't know if we can actually be with them. I have never been in a relationship before but I have been infatuated with someone I know I don't have chance to be together or have a lifetime with. It doesn't hurt as much as it was before, for I know that's how it works. We don't have the control as to who or when or how will we be able to be with someone that we like or love. Only He knows. We just have to be patient and enjoy being alone for the time being. Good things to those who wait. On the other hand, the meaning of this song is simple that I don't need to write it here for you guys to understand. It is in fact, a self explanatory song. The song that you just need to comprehend, and you'll understand it without putting much effort.

    This relates to me and my late husband - the love of my life. I think of him everyday from the time I wake up till I close my eyes at night, he is with me everywhere I go and up to this point in time, I have failed to let go even if I know he is already so far away and the time of meeting him someday would now be up to god, becuz only heaven knows when.
