Heaven Only Knows
Emmylou Harris

Lyrics

Every night, it's the same,
I feel your heart turn cold as rain.
I know that you'll be gone again,
I hear the front door close.
You say you gotta go downtown,
I guess there's someone else you've found.
So why you're still comin' 'round...
Heaven only knows.
Heaven only knows just why lovin' you should make me cry.
Make me feel like I could die.
That's the way it goes.
Heaven only ever sees how love's made a fool of me.
I guess that's how it's meant to be.
Heaven only knows.
I've heard it said that talk is cheap, but still your words, they cut so deep.
Leave me cryin' in my sleep, and the pain just grows.
I don't know who's right or wrong, but all we had is dead and gone.
So why you keep me hangin' on?
Heaven only knows.
Heaven only knows just why lovin' you should make me cry.
Make me feel like I could die.
That's the way it goes.
Heaven only ever sees how love's made a fool of me.
I guess that's how it's meant to be.
Heaven only knows.
I'm gonna turn and walk away,
there's nothing left for me to say.
It wouldn't change things anyway,
though I suppose...
The love I gave was always true,
well I don't know what else to do.
And how I'll ever get over you,
Heaven only knows.
Heaven only knows just why lovin' you should make me cry.
Make me feel like I could die.
That's the way it goes.
Heaven only ever sees how love's made a fool of me.
I guess that's how it's meant to be.
Heaven only knows.
