heavens been a long time comin’ lyrics – tom jones

i made a mistake or two
even played the perfect fool
i know how it feels to lose
everything you put your heart into
i cried lonely tears in vain
thought i never love again
but all the hurt that i’ve been through
has only led me straight to you

chorus:
heavens been a long time coming
yes it has
oh but baby you were worth the wait
i wanna give you all my loving
for however long it takes

there were times i could not see
the answer right in front of me
blinded by my selfish needs
till i finally sang to the
i was lost without a pray
the day you found me there
but now i’m living proof
of what an angels touch can do

chorus:
heavens been a long time coming
long time coming
oh but baby you were worth the wait
i finally put an end to all my running
baby lead me through that gate

now listen to this
look up (2*)
oh the skies the limit
with no more life without you in it
you’re my love, my heart
my soul, my life i can’t live without you

chorus

heavens been a long long long time coming
oeh but baby you were worth the wait
i finally but an end to all to all my running
so baby lead me through lead me through through that
gate
