nowadays they want a soldier fighter
not a preacher writer or a mystery man
somebody told me that the future's brighter
make tomorrow lighter put it in your hands

but I don't wanna cry anymore
try anymore -- die anymore

heaven knows I'm impatient
I can't control these hands of fate
heaven knows I'm still waiting
are they too soon or am I too late

oh is that so
only heaven knows
well I wanna know
tell me is that so
only heaven knows
heaven only knows

here come the romeos the brave I told you so's
the travelling g.i. joes with come on lines
here come the great defenders
wh think they can befriend us
why do we all pretend to know these guys

well I don't wanna wait anymore
be late anymore -- hate anymore

heaven knows I'm impatient
I can't control these hands of fate
heaven knows I'm still waiting
are they too soon or am I too late

oh is that so
only heaven knows
well I wanna know
tell me is that so
only heaven knows
heaven only knows

what a strange design
it's a planet out of time
someone tell me why
is the world like that

oh heaven knows
I said oh heaven knows

heaven knows I'm impatient
I can't control these hands of fate
heaven knows I'm still waiting
are they too soon or am I too late

you resign yourself to a simple fate
to live your life by the sell by date
haul yourself up the same old hill
watch the world from your windowsill
we always want what we can't afford
so we listen out for the missing chord
the chord is there and it's in your mind
so why do you make it so hard to find
