Only For A While

This song is by Anita Baker and appears on the album Rhythm of Love (1994).

For a little while, we know what heartache is
And we feel the pain the world can sometimes bring
For a little while, we cry in the night
Without a single song to sing
But one day all will change
There'll be no more stormy rain
Then at last we will rest forevermore

So if you're in the valley
And life is so unkind
And, if the tears keep falling
From your tired eyes
If burdens seem so heavy
And it's hard to smile
Then just remember
It's only for a while

For a little while you lose someone you love
And you miss the time together that you shared
For a little while you feel all alone and scared
With no one there to hold
Oh, the nights get long and cold
But it won't last, it will pass in time

So if you're in the valley
(If you're in the valley now)
And life is so unkind
(Life is so unkind)
And if the tears keep falling
From your tired eyes
(From your eyes)
If burdens seem so heavy
(Burdens so heavy, now)
And it's hard to smile
Then just remember
(You got to remember)
It's only for a while
