Boyz II Men – One Sweet Day (A Capella) lyrics

I won't be afraid
I'll be alright if you help me
I know you're looking down from heaven
And I won't let you down
I'll be everything you taught me
And all that I know is I'll wait
Patiently to see you in heaven

Sorry I never told you, all I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
Cause you've flown away, so far away
Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feeling, knowing you hear me, it keeps me alive

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day

Darling, I never showed you (I never showed you)
Assumed you'd always be there (always)
I took your presence for granted
But I always cared (but I always cared)
And I miss the love we shared


Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to a brighter day
Yeah, Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen (you will always listen)
As I pray

[Chorus:] x2

Sorry I never told you, all I wanted to say
