Richard Marx – Heavens Waiting lyrics

There is no understanding in this hostile age
Sometimes I feel just like a rat locked in a cage
It抯 hard to live beyond the walls
It ain抰 no life at all
But don抰 you tear it down

Take your chances, I抣l take mine
Chasing thunder is only wasted time
Got no reason to walk that line
Heaven抯 waiting if I can make it home tonight

And with the years I抳e found a faith that gets me by
It shows me the truth in a hurricane of lies
My baby抯 left a light for me
That抯 really all I need
They won抰 bring me down


Aimlessly rushing leaves you with nothing
You need some loving to make you feel alive
In less than a moment, life can be stolen
I know where I抦 going, gotta get me there tonight

I抦 holding on to what I can
Like any other lucky man
Love won抰 strike me, love won抰 sell me out
