Oh lover, come up close to me
Wipe away the tears that fall so naturally
We're all victims of the seeds we sow
Regret is just the final blow
Oh baby, baby, can it be so long?
I remember when you made me sing out my freedom song
Rock me baby, rock me side to side
You took me up in your arms
And you told me you were mine
God only knows where time can go
You got a story of your own now
Brother, sister, under one great sky
Will we ever be without divide
When our time comes we receive no sign
We hear no warning
Do I surrender to you on that day?
Do I turn away?
I wish, I wish you were beside me one day
May it be on this earth, or may it be in heaven
May it be on this earth, or may it be in the next world
I don't know, I don't know but I really really really
Want you to be there with me, baby, by my side
And may it be on this earth, or may it be in heaven...
