Fill in the gaps with a verb from the list.

 

be begging belong bend break bring carry
feel find help hold know saw stand stay
 

Would you ... my name if I ... you in heaven?
Would it ... the same if I ... you in heaven?
I must ... strong and ... on.
'Cause I don’t ... here in heaven.
Would you ... my hand if I ... you in heaven?
Would you ... me ... if I ... you in heaven?
I'll ... my way through night and day.
'Cause I ... I just can't ... here in heaven.
Time can ... you down; time can ... your knees.
Time can ... your heart, have you ... please, ... please.
Beyond the door there’s peace I’m sure,
And I ... there’ll ... no more tears in heaven.

Would you ... my name if I ... you in heaven? 
Would it ... the same if I ... you in heaven? 
I must ... strong and ... on.
'Cause I ... I don't ... here in heaven.
'Cause I ... I don't ... here in heaven.




Here are the lyrics:

Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven

Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on.
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven.
Would you hold my hand if I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand if I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day.
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven.
Time can bring you down; time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please.
Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure,
And I know there’ll be no more tears in heaven.

Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on.
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven.
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven.
