Heaven's Gate

sad eyes stretch shadows out of shape
search in vain for some means of escape
from your heart

as the night falls into despair
and the time crawls
I want you to hold me
open heaven's gate

sad eyes search for silhouettes, a sign
for a lifeline
to your heart

as the dawn breaks down into tears
and your mind aches
I want you to hold me
open heaven's gate
I want you to hold it open
don't make me wait
at heaven's gate

as the day breaks into a smile
it's been a long while
I want you to hold me
open heaven's gate
I want you to hold it open
it's not too late
don't make me wait
at heaven's gate
