Lyrics

I thought it would be a sacrifice taking care of you and just because you gave me life it something I was compelled to do
But those days we spent together and these last nights gave me more
Than all the days we were apart, everyday that came before

But heaven has you now, heaven has me waiting, waiting to see you

We talked and talked, I mostly listened to stories sweet and stories bitter 
I'd heard those tales loud and clear, but now there was wisdom in the whisper
I glance up at the clock on the dresser and wonder about eternity
But you never looked at it at all, guess you knew that time was just for me

And heaven has you now, heaven has me hoping, hoping to see you again

I'll make you so proud you'll be waiting for me
Just behind the dark clouds sitting angelically 
And I won't be the same and I won't want to be, everyday is some day
In a world that moves fast, I'll be slowing them down
With respect for what's past, the new vision I've found
And you'll be by my side and you'll live in my heart, all my life

When I think about those days, our talks and all those quiet nights
I'm drawn back to the place where you made everything seem so right
The room it looks so different now, new curtains and the paint is fresh
But the clock still up on the dresser gives me the time to pass on what you left

And heaven has you now and heaven has me waiting, waiting to see you again

I'll make you so proud you'll be waiting for me
Just behind the dark clouds sitting angelically 
And I won't be the same and I won't want to be, everyday is some day
In a world that moves fast, I'll be slowing them down
With respect for my past, the new vision I've found
And you'll be by my side and you'll live in my heart, all my life
