Hands To Heaven

Album: All That Jazz (1988)
Charted: 4 2
  • As I watch you move, across the moonlit room
    There's so much tenderness in your loving
    Tomorrow I must leave, the dawn knows no reprieve
    God give me strength when I am leaving...

    So raise your hands to heaven and pray
    That we'll be back together someday

    Tonight, I need your sweet caress
    Hold me in the darkness
    Tonight, you calm my restlessness
    You relieve my sadness

    As we move to embrace, tears run down your face
    I whisper words of love, so softly
    I can't believe this pain, it's driving me insane
    Without your touch, life will be lonely

    So raise your hands to heaven and pray
    That we'll be back together someday

    Tonight, I need your sweet caress
    Hold me in the darkness
    Tonight, you calm my restlessness
    You relieve my sadness

    Morning has come, another day
    I must pack my bags and say goodbye. Writer/s: D. GLASPER, I. SPICE, M. DELAHUNTY, M. LILLINGTON
