Heaven Can Wait

Originally written by Beck Hansen and performed by Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Lyrics:

She's sliding, she's sliding, down to the dregs of the world
She's fighting, she's fighting, the urge to make sand out of pearls

Heaven can wait
and hell's too far to go
somewhere between
what you need and what you know
and they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

She's hiding, she's hiding, on a battleship of baggage and bones
there's thunder, there's lightning in an avalanche of faces you know

Heaven can wait
and hell's too far to
somewhere between
what you need and what you know
and they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

You left your credentials in a greyhound station
with a first aid kit and a flashlight
Going to a desert unknown

Heaven can wait
and hell's too far to go
somewhere between
what you need and what you know
and they're trying to drive that escalator into the ground

Track Name: Rose Of Beauty
During the night of your twenty first
I was feeling a little cursed
we know what caused me not to stay
didn't pause to dance the night away

Now we just wait in the field of unforgiveness
won't be long until love walks through
once again, my dearest friend

Feeling like an enchanted beast
the love of ours has been deceased
holding on the sacred rose
beauty our written prose

The early morning rings the head
now I sleep deeper in this bed
as it is plain to see
we are simply meant to be

Broken glass marked the ground
leaving our love shattered
releasing an angel to repair
all the great dispair
