Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We thought a baby was the answer to keep us happy in our world
Our prayers were answered with a darling baby girl
And we named her Heaven, but a child’s not all it takes
But I’ll stay, and I’ll stay for Heaven’s sake

[Verse 2]
You often send me roses and kiss me when you leave home
And you pick out my shirt and tie like nothing’s ever wrong
But we’re only fooling Heaven, we can’t make a mistake
I won’t leave you, I’ll see it through for Heaven’s sake

[Verse 3]
Christmas trees and make believe for Heaven’s sake
Ginger mint and let’s pretend if that’s what it takes
Evening prayers and pigtails, teddy bears and wishing wells
For Heaven’s sake

[Verse 4]
Rollers kates and skinned-up knee, and dirty faced
I kiss her hurt until her tears are all erased
Baby dolls and your high heels, lollipops before her meal
For Heaven’s sake
