Heaven can wait

(McDonald)

     

I thought you'd live forever but you didn't.
I thought you'd always be around.
You used to say, 'There's always something'.
Well, now that something has come here.

In the silence that was between us
Your eyes spoke louder than words.
Oh, if only I could stop time
I'd freeze the 'I love you' on your tongue.

And the world goes round and round
But your feet don't touch the ground.

Heaven can wait for you, heaven can wait for love.

In the arc of our journey
And from the cradle to the grave
We live and leave our lives as children.
That is the spirit that remains.

And the world goes round and round
But your feet don't touch the ground.

Heaven can wait for you, heaven can wait for love.
For heaven cannot empty my heart of you.
Heaven can wait for love.
