"Heaven" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
You don't need no friends
Get back your faith again
You have the power to believe
Another dissident
Take back your evidence
It has no power to deceive

I'll believe it when I see it, for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I sit with them all night
Everything they say is right
But in the morning they were wrong
I'll be right by your side
Come hell or water high
Down any road you choose to roam

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive, yeah

Darling, I believe, Oh Lord
Sometimes it's hard to breathe, Lord
At the bottom of the sea, yeah yeah

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I don't need no one
Oh
I don't need no one
I don't need no one
I don't need no one
To tell me about heaven
I believe
I believe it, yeah

    General Commentif you listen to live at all it's pretty clear that they aren't praising "god" I think this song is more about appreciating LIFE and saying appreciate this and make this life heaven instead of wasting it all away

    General CommentThis song is self-explanatory:
    I don't need no-one to tell me about heaven.
    It's anti the packaged God the saviour
    And favours Nature.

    General CommentI love this song. It rocks, it has so much emotion in it-esspecially the first half of the first verse. I've only got one problem with it and that's that it was thrashed to death on the radio. Good song though. :)

    General CommentDarling I believe
    Sometimes it's hard to breathe
    At the bottom of the sea

    possibly a comparation of religious beliefs, the fact that this is true is given. Also, the word "sometimes" suggests that this belief pales in comparison to the belief in god

    General CommentI agree with Incu, considering the fact that Ed isn't a Christian.

    General CommentThis is a ripoff of a Zwan song called "Yeah!" The vocal melody is different, but everything else is practically unchanged. Fuck you, Live.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about looking at the world around you, taking it in, and deciding for yourself what you believe.

    "take back your evidence, it has no power to decieve"
    "I believe it, when I see it for myself"

    These lines, coupled with the chorus seem to indicate that he's saying that you don't need people to tell you what is right and what you should believe. you can do it yourself.

    great song
