God Only Knows

This song is by Bonnie Raitt and appears on the album Slipstream (2012).

Darkness settles on the ground
Leaves the day stumbling blind
Coming to a quite close
And maybe just in time

We've almost the heart to know
How to keep our best in mind
We've almost the heart to know
How to keep our best in mind

Time has turned an angry face
Throws a dark eye back to sea
But what will pass for mercy now
We'll practice unforgivingly

As if might and will make right
Or either one could make us free
As if might and will make right
Or either one could make us free

Lovers laugh and cross this way
A-weavin' 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 what 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 try to be your light and love
Pray that it's enough for now
Well, I tried to be your light and love
And I'll pray that is enough for now
