  • Lyrics
  • This mournful piano ballad finds Beyoncé detailing someone taken from her too soon and letting go off her lost love. Many fans believe it refers to the miscarriage the singer suffered several years before the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012.
  • Beyoncé produced the song with a Pop mysterion known as Boots who signed to Jay Z's record label Roc Nation around June 1, 2013. Boots revealed on his Facebook page on the day Beyoncé was released that he produced 85% of the album and contributed four original songs. This song was originally on his SoundCloud page under the title of "Heaven Couldn't Wait."
  • Beyoncé ends the song by singing the shortened version of the Lord's Prayer in Spanish. It translates as:

    "Our father, which art in heaven
    Hallowed be thy name
    Thy kingdom come
    Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven

    Amen."
  • Here are three more songs on our database that contain The Lord's Prayer:

    "The Lord's Prayer" by Sister Janet Mead
    "Millennium Prayer" by Cliff Richard
    "Controversy" by Prince.
