Why Won't Heaven Help Me? Lyrics

I set off alarms and fire off flares (?)
'Cause sometimes the answer (?)
I'm listening
I wait for some distant bell to ring
Why won't heaven help me? (far, far away)
Why won't heaven help me? (it's so hard to say)
Why won't heaven help me?

Hey, you out there
Even if you dare take care of your wishes
If you finally do come true
You may regret that too
Why won't heaven help me?
Why won't heaven help me?
Why won't heaven help me?

Remember the thrill that followed Prince?
While dressed for a lover's gaze
The moment when
You saw through the lies of older men
Why won't heaven help me? (far, far away)
Why won't heaven help me? (it's so hard to say)
Why won't heaven help me?

Hey, you out there
Even if you dare take care of your wishes
If you finally do come true
You may regret that too
Why won't heaven help me?
Why won't heaven help me?
Why won't heaven help me? I sensed this was wrong
But take my word, I thought somehow I'd be spared
Alone again
Believe what you want 'til then
Why won't heaven help me? (far, far away)
Why won't heaven help me? (it's so hard to say)
Why won't heaven help me?

Hey, you out there
Even if you dare take care of your wishes
If you finally do come true
You may regret that too
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)

Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
Why won't heaven help me? (why won't heaven?)
