"Here in Heaven" as written by and Ronald D Mael....
Here there are lots of things to do
And a panoramic view
Of the universe completely surrounding you
And here you cannot buy souvenirs
For you're never going back, never,never!

Basically, I guess it could be worse,
Yes I do suppose it could be worse

Here there are many many sheep
And the people only sleep
And awake to tell how gory and gruesome was their end
And I don't have many friends
And it's really very clean
And I'm thinking...

Juliet you broke our little pact
Juliet, I'm never coming back

Up here in Heaven without you
I'm here in heaven without you
Up here in heaven without you
It is hell knowing that your health
Will keep you out of here
For many many years

Dear do you often think of me
As you overlook the sea?
Do I qualify as dearly departed or am I
That sucker in the sky,
The fall guy for the first and the last time?

Juliet, I thought we had agreed
Now I know why you let me take the lead

Up here in Heaven without you
I'm here in heaven without you
Up here in heaven without you
It is hell knowing that your health
Will keep you out of here
For many many years

Second thoughts, is that what you had?
Second thoughts, first I broke my back
Second thoughts, as I hit the sea
Second thoughts, for eternity, for eternity, for eternity

Up here in Heaven without you
I'm here in heaven without you
Up here in heaven without you
It is hell knowing that your health
Will keep you out of here
For many many years

    General Commentthis appears to be the story of a couple who had a suicide pact, but after he went through with it she (Juliet, perhaps even a reference to shakespeare) did not. So now he is up in heaven without her but it is not heaven for him as he is not with her.

    General CommentI know the 'the sparks' thing really annoys me. And yeah its a joke, but don't you think that its about that, i mean the lyrics are clearly pointing to that story even if its just a joke.

    General CommentSparks songs may not be "serious", but never are they totally nonsensical. This IS about Romeo and Juliet if the ending was different and Juliet decided not to kill herself.

    General Commentis it necessarily just a joke? most sparks lyrics tend to have a grain of truth to them, or at least they're grounded in something real. i get the impression that this is an overdone version of a song that stems from a genuine emotion. pretty interesting premise as well. they don't take themselves seriously, but that doesn't mean their songs are always nonsensical.
