Heaven Only Knows

Album: Richard Marx (1987)
  • I watch the world go round and round
    And my life goes by at the speed of sound
    I walk the night
    And I wonder just where I belong, oh

    My heart is young, but my soul is old
    I've never been one to do what I was told
    My back to the wall
    Is the only place I can feel strong, oh

    Heaven only knows what lies before me
    Heaven only knows what all my searching is for
    All my life I've waited for a miracle
    But I can't ask for anything more

    I like to think I'm a faithful man
    To resist desire, I do all I can
    I hope to die in the arms of the woman I love, oh

    Repeat chorus

    I've always wondered how to know right from wrong
    Looking for a reason to replace what is gone
    But somehow the road just seems to lead right back to me
