Roberta Flack – Only Heaven Can Wait lyrics
We know that it's all over, still we haven't said goodbye,
Pretending life is wonderful, pretending you and I.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, only heaven can wait.
Waiting for love wont make it happen,
Crying for love don't mean you care.. Oh no,
Only when love has ended, can a heart be mended.
Nevers too late, only heaven can wait.
In horoscopes, in true romance and Playboy magazine,
We lie in bed at night and search the pages for our dreams.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, only heaven can wait.
And waiting for love wont make it happen,
Crying for love don't mean you care.. Oh no,
Only when love has ended, can a heart be mended,
Evers too late, only heaven can wait.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, only heaven can wait.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, only heaven can wait.
Talking
So weve been together too long, you and I.
There were the children, shared interests, creative interests, business interests, our In-laws,
And then just plain old bad habit.
Now things have changed. Youve changed, I've changed and it's time to move on.
So, my sweet, you kept doubting that I would understand what you meant when you said you needed your space.
Well, I do understand. I have some more reasons another purpose to my life and I'm ready to take my own space we both deserve it something real.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, only heaven can wait.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, only heaven can wait.
Why do we stay together, we can't wait forever,
Heavens too late, onl
