    "Can Heaven Wait" Lyrics

    Luther Vandross

    (ahh , oooh oooh)
    Quarter after seven, got a phone call
    Telling me to get here quick
    Said your girl is in a bad situation
    They don't know if she's gonna make it

    As I hurry to be by her side
    I ask a thousand times, why oh why
    There's no rhyme or reason in my life
    With you lying here this way

    I'd give anything just to trade places with you

    So I'm begging heaven down on my knees
    To help you make it through

    (Chours) Tell me can heaven wait
    Can heaven wait just one more night
    Tell me what it's gonna take
    To keep you with me in my life

    Giving up the shame of my other life
    Now I'm seeing things in a whole new light
    Lord, I vow to change if you just make it right
    Can heaven wait one night

    Thinking back on times that I've wasted
    I should have cherished every day
    All the different flavors that I tasted
    Can't compare to you and your

    As I reminisce by your side
    Tears of guilt are streaming from my eyes
    All the things I did that weren't right
    Wish I could apologize

    I'd give anything if I could trade places with you
    So I'm beggin' heaven down on my knees
    To help you make it through


    I'm gonna stop the world, reverse the time
    Do whatever it takes to keep you alive
    Heaven has to wait one more day

    Baby, take my breath so you can breathe
    I need you here so don't you leave
    Heaven has to wait

    [Repeat chorus until fade]
