Ave Maria

Album: I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008)
  • She was lost in so many different ways
    Out in the darkness with no guide
    I know the cost of a losing hand
    But for the grace of God go I

    I found heaven on earth
    You are my last, my first
    And then I hear this voice inside
    Ave Maria

    I've been alone
    When I'm surrounded by friends
    How could the silence be so loud?
    But I still go home
    Knowing that I've got you
    There's only us when the lights go down

    You are my heaven on earth
    You are my hunger, my thirst
    I always hear this voice inside
    Singing Ave Maria

    Sometimes love can come and pass you by
    While you're busy making plans
    Suddenly hit you and then you realize
    It's out of your hands
    Baby, you got to understand

    You are my heaven on earth
    You are my last, my first
    And then I hear this voice inside
    Ave Maria
