We know that it's all over, still we haven't said goodbye
Pretending life is wonderful, pretending you and I
Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, only heaven can wait

Waiting for love won't make it happen
Crying for love don't mean you care, oh no
Only when love has ended can a heart be mended
Never's too late, only heaven can wait for love
Heaven can wait for love

In horoscopes, in true romance and Playboy magazine
We lie in bed at night and search the pages for our dreams
Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, only heaven can wait

And waiting for love won't make it happen
Crying for love don't mean you care, oh no
Only when love has ended can a heart be mended
Never's too late, only heaven can wait

Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, only heaven can wait
Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, only heaven can wait

So we've been together too long, you and I, there were the children
Shared interests, creative interests, business interests
Our in-laws and then just plain old bad habit
Now things have changed, you've changed
I've changed, and it's time to move on

So, my sweet, you kept doubting that I would ever understand
What you meant when you said you needed your space
Well, I do understand, I have some more reasons
Another purpose to my life and I'm ready to take my own space
We both deserve it, something real

Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, never
Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, heaven can wait

Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, only heaven can wait
Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
Never's too late, only heaven can wait

Why do we stay together? We can't wait forever
