Don't Keep Heaven

This song is by Lisa Bevill and appears on the album All Because Of You (1994).

Don't keep heaven waitin' without reservation
Cease all hesitation and give in to life
'Cause meditation with no revelation
Speaks to depravation in the heart and mind

So when I called you up with mornin'
And they said that you were gone
I got this empty kinda feelin'
That you were out there on your own
And I was hopin' I could tell you
That in judging I was wrong
That you could tell me all about it
For you I'd be strong

I don't wanna study war no more
This time we even up the score
If we can get together and walk through the door
That leads to a better life

Hate to hold a grudge, won't budge
Tangled in disputes that we both need no part of
Let's call a truce, in the meanwhile
We can get together and reconcile

Every nation, time is surely waitin'
We need reconciliation to breathe in new life
Don't keep heaven waitin' without reservation
Cease to hesitate all brothers, brothers and sisters

So when you called me up this mornin'
Said that you were coming home
You were gonna keep the baby
You were gonna need someone
I was tryin' hard to hold back the feelin'
But the tears came on too strong
To think I'd have my chance to tell you
So many others won't

I don't wanna study war no more
Somehow I can't recall what we were fighting for
If we can get together and walk through that door
That leads to so many more who bleed
From this terrible disease that incapacitates us

Don't keep heaven waiting without reservation
Cease all hesitation and give in to life
(We can get together and reconcile)
'Cause meditation with no revelation
Speaks to depravation in the heart and mind

What in creation could unravel destroy
A nation of union twisted in degradation
On the book it's time for truth through education
No more do we fight a battle
And what's the word?

War no more
(No more, no more)
This time we even up the score
(We ain't gonna have no more, no more)
(We ain't gonna have that war no more)
If we can get together and walk through that door
(Know what I'm sayin', ah, yeah)
That leads to so many more who bleed
From this terrible disease that incapacitates us

Don't keep heaven waiting without reservation
Cease all hesitation and give in to life
'Cause meditation with no revelation
Speaks to depravation in the heart and mind
(It's time to reconcile, yeah)

I do believe that what will be will be
I do believe in the kingdom come
I do believe in the ways of peace, you see
I do believe that a better day's comin' after 'while

That's what it's about
That's what it's about
Pack yo bags and let's go!

Brothers and sisters

I do believe that what will be will be
I do believe in the kingdom come
I do believe in the ways of peace, you see
I do believe that a better day's comin' after 'while

I do believe that what will be will be
I do believe in the kingdom come
I do believe in the ways of peace, you see
I do believe that a better day's comin' after 'while...
