When you're like a broken bird tell heaven
Battered wings against the dark and day
When your worries won't let you sleep tell heaven
When the tears won't ever go away

If you got no one to love tell heaven
There's no one on the telephone today
When every story falls apart tell heaven
Nothing good seems like it will come your way

Tell heaven
Tell heaven

Heavy hearts in empty rooms, tell heaven
You don't have to know what you will say
The empty sky will never take our burdens
Something good will someday come our way

So tell heaven
Tell heaven
