heaven’s last attempt lyrics – jude cole

rain down mercy
for the lost and lonely child
for the liars and the losers
the reckless and the wild

there’s no more use in pretending
i know i never fooled you
the deepest darkness i’ve ever known
comes from living like i do

but i swear i’m gonna knock on that gate
even if it’s all in vain
i’ll stand outside with my mouth wide open
and drink the pouring rain

i know there’s some good left in this world
i’ve seen it shine in your eyes
rain down salvation
and keep my faith alive

the harder we fall, the closer we come
to finding our hearts and the damage we’ve done
darling, i’ve held the devil’s dirty hand
but holding you now, i know is heaven’s last attempt

won’t you walk beside me?
you know i can’t make it alone
here the fields are dark and the wind is hard
hard as stone

roll out the sky
oh, and let me come home, come home
i wanna come home

the harder we fall, the closer we come
to finding the light and the warmth of the sun
all that i’ve ever had i’ve let slip through my hands
but holding you now, i know is heaven
heaven
