Bonnie Raitt God Only Knows Lyrics

Last updated: 10/28/2012 06:49:21 AM

Darkness settles on the ground
And leaves the day stumbling blind,
Coming to a quiet close
And maybe just in time:
We'd almost lost the heart to know
How to keep our best in mind,
We'd almost lost the heart to know
How to keep our best in mind.

Time has turned an angry face
And throws a dark eye back to see
That what will pass for mercy now
We'll practice unforgivingly.
As if might and will made right
Or either one could make us free,
As if might and will made right
Or either one could make us free.

Lovers laugh and cross this way
Weaving out into the street,
It seems we never were so young
Or it was never quite so sweet.
But the world is always beautiful
When it's seen in full retreat,
The worst of life looks beautiful
As it slips away in full retreat.


God only knows that we can do
No more or less than He’ll allow,
God only knows that we mean well
God knows that we just don't know how.
But I'll try to be your light in love
And pray that is enough for now,
I'll try to be your light in love
And pray that is enough for now.
