(ahh, oooh oooh)
Quarter after seven, got a phone call
Telling me to get here quick
Said your girl is in a bad situation
They don't know if she's gonna make it

As I hurry to be by her side
I ask a thousand times, why oh why
There's no rhyme or reason in my life
With you lying here this way

I'd give anything just to trade places with you
So I'm begging heaven down on my knees
To help you make it through

(Chours) Tell me can heaven wait
Can heaven wait just one more night
Tell me what it's gonna take
To keep you with me in my life

Giving up the shame of my other life
Now I'm seeing things in a whole new light
Lord, I vow to change if you just make it right
Can heaven wait one night

Thinking back on times that I've wasted
I should have cherished every day
All the different flavors that I tasted
Can't compare to you and your

As I reminisce by your side
Tears of guilt are streaming from my eyes
All the things I did that weren't right
Wish I could apologize

I'd give anything if I could trade places with you
So I'm beggin' heaven down on my knees
To help you make it through

[Chorus]

I'm gonna stop the world, reverse the time
Do whatever it takes to keep you alive
Heaven has to wait one more day

Baby, take my breath so you can breathe
I need you here so don't you leave
Heaven has to wait

[Repeat chorus until fade]
