Heaven Can Wait

  • Lyrics
  • She's sliding, she's sliding down to the depth of the world
    She's fighting, she's fighting the urge to make sand out of pearls

    Heaven can wait
    And hell's too far ago
    Somewhere between
    What you need and what you know
    And they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

    She's hiding, she's hiding on a battleship of baggage and bones
    There's thunder, there's lightening in an avalanche of faces you know

    Heaven can wait
    And hell's too far to go
    Somewhere between
    What you need and what you know
    And they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

    You left your credentials in a greyhound station
    With a first aid kit and a flashlight
    Going to a desert unknown

    Heaven can wait
    And hell's too far ago
    Somewhere between
    What you need and what you know
    And they're trying to drive that escalator into the groundWriter/s: KAI HANSEN
