"Heaven Can Wait" as written by Michael Jackson, Andreao Heard, Teron Beal, Nate Smith, Teddy Riley, Eritza Laues and K. Quiller....
Tell the angels no, I don't want to leave my baby alone
I don't want nobody else to hold you
That's a chance I'll take
Baby I'll stay, Heaven can wait
No, if the angels took me from this earth
I would tell them bring me back to her
It's a chance I'll take, maybe I'll stay
Heaven can wait

You're beautiful
Each moment spent with you is simply wonderful
This love I have for you girl it's incredible
And I don't know hat I'd do, if I can't be with you
The world could not go on so every night I pray
If the Lord should come for me before I wake
I wouldn't want to go if I can't see your face, can't hold you close
What good would Heaven be
If the angels came for me I'd tell them no


Me sitting up in the clouds and you are all alone
The time might come around when you'd be moving on
I'd turn it all around and try to get back down to my baby girl
Can't stand to see nobody kissing, touching her
Couldn't take nobody loving you the way we were
What good would Heaven be
If the angels come for me I'd tell them no


Oh no, can't be without my baby
Won't go, without her I'd go crazy
Oh no, guess Heaven will be waiting
Oh no, can't be without my baby
Won't go, without her I'd go crazy
Oh no, guess Heaven will be waiting


Just leave us alone, leave us alone
Please leave us alone

    General CommentAmazing song!
    He's just asking for more time with "his baby", refusing to go with the angels!
    It hurts listening to it now... :(

    General CommentThis is the one Michael Jackson song I can't bring myself to listen to now. It is so beautiful and honest, but now means something completely different to me. I thought you said Heaven Could Wait Michael, didn't you tell the Angels no? :(

    Before he passed though, I got the idea this song may be about his daughter. Many may think it's about his lady or something, but I really see the connection to his daughter.

    General CommentI DEFINATELY agree! This song ROCKS!! I think possibly one of his best songs ever. I don't care what people say, I LOVE the "Invincible" album and it makes me feel really good to listen to it. Songs like this one really brighten my day. When he yells "No!" in the song when his girl is being taken away, it just brings out the true, expressive MJ. This song is the sweetest!

    General CommentIt's a beautiful song and the other posters write, listening to this song now, hurts.
    It's like he knew this was coming and he wanted to let us know through his songs.

    I miss you Michael!
