You don't pass your time in limbo or hang out with the crowd.
Sitting on the stoop like a little girl who took the wrong road into town.
But you got that short cut way about you.
No one's gonna stare you down.
You cook much better on a lower flame.
You burn much better when the sun goes down.

And heaven can wait, but you ought to be a saint
I got your very best intentions helping me along.
And if I ever fail to mention you were an overnight sensation.
Well take it from me, my baby's a saint.
My baby's a saint

I believe you were a new arrival on the fast train passing through.
And you traded in your luck for survival to sweeten up the witch's brew.
You had a better way of working magic. A little mystery in your eyes.
Instead of rolling over you remained the same.
You took the whole world by surprise

And heaven can wait, but you ought to be a saint
I got your very best intentions helping me along.
And if I ever fail to mention you were an overnight sensation.
Well take it from me, my baby's a saint.
My baby's a saint

My baby's a saint

And heaven can wait, but you ought to be a saint
I got your very best intentions helping me along.
And if I ever fail to mention you were an overnight sensation.
Well take it from me, my baby's a saint.
My baby's a saint
