Hands To Heaven Lyrics

Artist: Breathe

As I watch you move, across the moonlit room
There's so much tenderness in your loving
Tomorrow I must leave, the dawn knows no reprieve
God give me strength when I am leaving...

So raise your hands to heaven and pray
That we'll be back together someday

Tonight, I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight, you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness

As we move to embrace, tears run down your face
I whisper words of love, so softly
I can't believe this pain, it's driving me insane
Without your touch, life will be lonely

So raise your hands to heaven and pray
That we'll be back together someday

Tonight, I need your sweet caress
Hold me in the darkness
Tonight, you calm my restlessness
You relieve my sadness

Morning has come, another day
I must pack my bags and say goodbye...

I have been in love this song...what was the inspiration behind the lyric...I felt a spiritual connection...a passion that can only be quvired from God.
by K2 on 6/4/2008 9:05pm
it sounds to me that the inspiration would be like a soldier leaving for war and spending one last night with his love.
by sr1206 on 6/7/2008 10:09am
Definitely a soldier leaving for war. Lots of emotion in the vocals for sure.

My sister lost her young husband to cancer after a courageous battle. This song was played at his funeral and remains hauntingly beautiful to me.

This is one of the best anybody to love no homo but ima hood ass nigga dis shit crazy that these dudes have the best vocalist song any one could listen too
by inlovewithasoldier on 9/20/2008 11:35pm
when i first heard this song, it reminded me of my fiance. he's a soldier and he's been deployed. and this song sounds just like what i've been through... like a soldier leaving his love because he's been called out to leave for war, etc.
by inlovewithasoldier on 9/20/2008 11:42pm
i also wanted to say this song has so much meaning that it touched my's a very tough situation to go through, when a loved one leaves you for a reason. it could be anything. this song will remain in my heart of my fiance. always...and hoping he'll come back home to me..
by Cyprianna on 9/24/2008 11:22am
I love this song. It is beautiful.
by mrbsgirl on 10/8/2008 3:28pm
This song is for my "heart" who had to move to TX...I've never been in love as I am with him...
by MS on 10/9/2008 9:09pm
when I first remembered this song i played it for my guy friendish thing (long story) and now its our song :-)
by Jamie on 10/23/2008 11:50am
This is absolutely my favorite song of all time! It has gotten me through a lot of heartache. Especially being with someone that was dieing from cancer. It means alot to me.
by samikins on 11/19/2008 8:30am
I was dedicating this song to my soon to be exboyfriend because even though we love eachother very much, we dont have the same future plans. He got a vasectomy and now I'm leaving him and moving across the country. I will always love him. I believe if we are meant together we will find eachother again some day.
by *lovestruck17* on 12/7/2008 2:13pm
i love this song. it touched my heart in so many ways. this song reminds me of my boyfriend who lives 350 miles away. we hardly ever get to see eachother, maybe twice a year. he's the most important person in my life. im so in love with him. i hurts me so much to be so far apart from him. he calls me every day and we talk about how much we miss and love eachother. i cry every time i hear this song. it makes me think of him every time. he's the best boyfriend and my best friend. i'm truely in love with him and this song made me realize just how much. it's beautiful in every way.

Hace poco descubrí esta canción y no paro de escucharla, me transporta, y me hace creer que sí existe el amor
by her daughter on 1/13/2009 4:59pm
My Dad and Mom had read part of this song on a plaque just before he suddenly passed away. My mother takes great comfort from these words especially the first verse and the chorus.
by oggi on 1/25/2009 7:41pm
Credo che e una bella canzione.
by pjanthony on 4/18/2009 9:54pm
great song, has so many different means for so many different people, not just stupid, brain- dead people leaving others so they can go and kills innocent people on illegal wars.....;o)
by Swalker on 4/30/2009 10:09am

by kroozah119 on 7/7/2009 11:41pm
this song reminds me of my girlfriend. i hadn't heard this song for years until i was thinking about her tonight and i happened to remember the lyrics. i love her so very much...and i will be moving miles away from her soon and i don't know how often we will see each other. but i will still love her with every aspect of my existence.

this happens to be my third favorite song of all time. I was 10 years old when this song came out. Still to this day, it is one of the few that i can fall asleep to.
by Tanya on 8/29/2009 9:20am
A favorite of mine and my Husband of 20 yrs now,Honey I love You. This song played the night before he left for he's 2nd tour back to Iraq the words are so true, Be Careful,come home Safe. Love You, T~
by Joe King on 9/17/2009 10:10am
I thought this song was about a guy leaving his boyfriend to go to work at McDonald's for a 4 hour part time shift. But then he'd come home and everything would be okay. But then in the morning he'd have to go to work again and sing this song all over again before he left. But then he'd come back home after four hours and everything would be okay. Wash, Rinse, Repeat for the rest of their lives.

sad that so many people are having a go at what this song means and getting it wrong or making it mean what they want to mean e.g. "definately a soldier leaving for war" wtf the only line that even touches on anything even remotely related is "Tomorrow I must leave" and whats with the macdonalds thing?
by Vet on 4/27/2010 12:37am
I love this song. . . Every since I was a child, I loved this song. It's a pretty love song that is timeless!
by Selina on 4/27/2010 2:05am
2 weeks ago I found out that my husband email this song to her ex..
Am I suppose to leave or pretend nothing happen??
by FREDDY I on 5/17/2010 5:23pm

I really love this songs. Nakakainlove talaga! Hands To Heaven - Breathe
by tk74 on 6/9/2010 11:25pm
I dont think anyone has touched on what this song is about. It's clearly about a forbidden love. At night, in the darkness, he needs her love, caress, and tenderness. yet she cries because she knows he will only leave again with the morning.
by Anton on 6/28/2010 11:42pm
This song reminds me of my long distance girlfriend who lives in Manila. I believe in reincarnation and God knows how many lifetimes that we got separated.. I want to be with her again... I do my best to control my emotions especially when I hear the part with the saxophone near the end of the song...
by Tony Valino on 8/8/2010 5:10am
I really like this song sung by Christian Bautista. It reminds me of old memories.

This song reminds me of the day I said goodbye to my husband when he was leaving for his second deployment to Iraq. He was killed 3-1/2 months later, just outside of Kirkuk, Iraq. Our love was great and strong. And he will always be a big part of me.
by mary on 12/25/2010 5:48pm
this was played at our wedding and now our time is up - the marriage is over
by adagio4jt on 1/22/2011 3:45pm
I came of age in the 1980's and althoiugh I had an AWESOME time back then, ironically I cannot stand the majority of the music from that time period. If I had to choose just ONE song from back then that I like, it would definitely be this one. LOVE IT!
by rodhel on 2/10/2011 7:09am
i love this sng
by His1luv on 2/13/2011 11:36am
This song can have so many different meanings for everyone; that's the beauty of it!

For us; it was playing on the radio the first time we made love. We met in '88 and everything was wonderful. Even though we lived in different states (he in LA & I in CA), we knew this was meant to be. The 2 weeks we spent together, we loved a lifetimes worth. The night before I had to leave, this song played again. We didn't realize how profound (prophetic) its words were going to become for us. 21 years later we found each other again; and ALL the Love we had for each other back then is still ever present!

So whether we be wrong or right in our interpretation of this song; it will always hold a very special place in our hearts & lives!

"So raise your hands to Heaven and pray. That we'll be back together someday".... Love found... Love lost... Love returns... God truly is magnificent! Here's to us My Love! Faith! No Doubts!

It's one of those songs that touches your heart and brings back memories every time you hear it. I have to stop what I'm doing and close my eyes to relive them when it plays on my iPod.
by Maria on 11/3/2011 4:00am
This song is getting me emotionally ready for when my husband leaves for duty. :(
by Rezin L. Harris on 2/27/2012 6:03pm
I heard this song on the radio and been searching for a WHOLE week looking for the title. They should include the title of the songs on the radio. They never do on Magic 101.9
by James on 3/23/2012 7:27pm
I've loved this song ever since I was a little kid. I'd often try to find it but didn't know who sang it until I was covering their other song "How Can I Fall" with my band and stumbled upon this one. It brought back so many childhood memories of me going to school in the morning and singing with my mother. Its such a beautiful song I think I'll sing it for auditions now as it shows emotion and range. :)
by me on 9/13/2012 11:31am
I was going crazy trying to find this song. I though it was sung by Enrique Iglesias and i came to find i was wrong all this time.
by Precious(classy) on 9/23/2012 10:24pm
This song reminds me when I was in Europe.Someone I will never 4get caus I'm still crazy about.Things didn't go aswell when I was there caus the last day all came out why,because that person knew I have to leave again so all the feelings didn't want to came out for me.When I went home we called and talk for hours about how we should be.But she heard rumors that she couldn't handle and so she let me go.I so down but couldn't do nothing caus she was oceans apart of me.We'll the love will always B.
by Robbo on 10/28/2012 3:49pm
It was mid eighties, I was separated from the love of my life and I remember listening to this song. We had a son, we married, he strayed, not once but twice, got divorced. I still think of him when I hear ths song.
by Diana on 11/30/2012 12:47am
It reminds me of my high school sweetheart who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident when I was 16 in 1988. I spent an evening with him the day before he died. Some years later I had a dream of him and in the dream I was trying to prevent him from going on that road trip as if I could have saved him. Sadly he told me that it was his time and he had to go. Everytime I hear this song it is always in the car and I feel his presence. It has been 24 years and I still think of him often. Miss you Sam...
by KLF on 12/13/2012 10:09pm
I first heard this in 1986, saw the video and fell in love with it. And, after all these years, i still remember the lyrics. Beautiful song, not like most of the stuff that was coming out in the 80s. Definitely NOT Stock, Aitken and Waterman!

I was 14 in 1986. You do the maths. :p
by Maria on 12/24/2012 11:32pm
Tabb: I always think about you when i listen to this song. Our nights are beautiful, but at the end of the day , I realize that you must go. I hope one can we can be together without seeing you leaving. Maria. Bedford-Tx

Recién escuche esta canción la cual hac tanto tiempo no escuchaba. Mi última quebrada y destrozada relación vino a mi mente más cuando escuche esa parte en la que el se va y toma sus maletas quizás para nunca más volver. Sentí que era yo sentí q es algo que debo hacer porque desde el 1er día que la vi me enamore locamente por ella y por circunstancia de la vida la perdí... Muy probablemente porque en mi vida todo lo que es bueno no dura. Hoy le dedique esa canción a esa persona después de 7 años; la verdad ni logro recordar cuanto tiempo ha pasado pero siento que fue ayer cuando se escapó de mis brazos cuando se fue y me dejo con el corazón latiendo solo por ella creo que olvido desenchufar esa parte. Quisiera saber de una vez por todas si ella es o no para mi porque cada día que pasa un pedazo de mi muere y sin sentido alguno parezco vivir esta vida, que de ser así quisiera vivir por lo tanto vivirla muy lejos de aquí.
by NYC MAN on 4/20/2014 1:52pm
It's nice to know that so many of you share my love and appreciation for this song. Even if one has never experienced loss or the pain of parting with one you love. The lyrics and song are just plain beautiful.
by barbara on 5/31/2017 11:50am
It's a beautiful soul-reaching song. Funny that though no mention of death is made, many people have sensed this terrible separation, a no-return situation. Maybe because of the intensity and desperation in the singer's voice...l also thought the character in the song was dying in the morning..
