Lyrics

Baby I don't know if I can keep on going
and if you're gonna stay
The joker dealt a hefty hand
and it's with these cards I have tried to play
Though I have tried, God knows I've tried
things have not really worked out so well
Sometimes I wonder if perhaps I have already gone to hell

And Heaven is a place I may never be
Heaven I beg have mercy on me
Heaven may not be my destiny
But Heaven I pray will have mercy, mercy on me

Every time that I give up I find a song that will not give up on me
A song nobody else will hear but it's a song that sets me free
Days go by dreams slip away
like a rainbow they just fade and hopes belong to someone younger someone happier, not gay

Heaven is place I may never see
Heaven I pray will have mercy on me
Heaven may not be my destiny
But Heaven I pray have mercy, mercy on me

I wanna see the light
Meet somebody kind
Believe in something
one more, one more time
I wanna touch the sun
Be loved by someone
I wanna matter once
before I'm done

And baby, I don't know if I can keep on going
and if you're gonna stay
The joker dealt a hefty hand and it's with these cards I have tried to play
Every time that I give up I find a song that will not give up on me
a song nobody else will hear but it's a song that sets me free, (oh yes and)

Heaven is a place I may never be
Heaven I beg will have mercy on me
Heaven may not be my destiny but I pray Heaven will have mercy, mercy on me

'cause I believe, I believe in Heaven.


Heaven
