Lyrics: 

If Heaven Let Us Be
by Pam Grisham, July 2019

Em D
It's so dark here in this place… I can barely see
Em D
I reach out to touch your face… you pull away from me
Em D
Love wouldn't last a day… if it were up to you and me
Em D
We'd go our separate ways… if heaven let us be

G D
You go when I need you to stay… I stay when you need me to go
G D
We've known so much pain… thrown out on this road
G A
Some wounds fade away… some heal more slowly
Em G D
So you go when I need you to stay...I stay when you need me to go

Solo
Em D
When you look past me that way… I can see you're about to leave
Em D
Tears roll down my face… then I fall down on my knees
Em D
Love wouldn't last a day… if it were up to you and me
Em D
We'd go our separate ways… if heaven let us be

Chorus

Such a beautiful intimate feeling bittersweet song. The vulnerability and the insight is so poignant. Your rhythmic approach and delivery is perfect. Powerful poetic hook. Very effective. Tugs at my heart. Love it.

Sweet sounds, like I was transported back Smile I like the little-bit-sad lyric feeling and the way it lines up with the music.

this takes me back to the california country rock and the voice of linda ronstadt, wailing away emotionally as the band keeps up with her. this is like a bare bones, in the bedroom version of one of those personal songs that becomes an anthem when sung on the stage with a band.
