Tear in Heaven

Would you know my name
if I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
if I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven...

Would you hold my hand
if I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
if I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven...

Time can bring you down,
time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart,
have you begging please,begging please...
Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven...

歌词大意

假如在天堂相遇,你是否会认得我?
假如在天堂重逢,一切是否依旧?
我必须坚强,必须继续,
因为我知道,这天堂不属于我。

假如在天堂相遇,你是否会握住我的手?
假如在天堂重逢,你是否会扶我站起?
我要日复一日,找寻方向,
因为我知道,这天堂不属于我。

时间会让你绝望,时间会使你屈膝。
时间会使你心碎,时间会让你乞求。
跨过那道门,必定是一片祥和,
而我知道将不再有人泪洒天堂。
