The Guess Who – Heaven Only Moved Once Yesterday lyrics

Heaven only moved once yesterday

Before the moon and stars were born
Angels makin' love
And all along the coast of fear
Devil come screaming and tear them down

Heaven only moved once yesterday

In a neon jungle far below
Bargain basement prayer
A mother mourns her dying child
Never people taking the time to care

Heaven only moved once yesterday

Half the time they're trying to take 'em away
Everybody once we knew
Pay a dollar at the gate
A dead man gonna be coming on through

Heaven only moved once yesterday
