"Better Be Heaven" as written by Torquil John Campbell and Christopher Allen Seligman....
This is the seventh time,
And I've got seven reasons.
And almost everytime,
It ends up with you leaving.
Just give it one more chance,
It's all about the truth.
Don't close your eyes at night,
Till our mouths have kissed.

I'll count the the steps to happiness,
I've missed,
Recall,
One is the touch,
Two is the feeling,
Three is the answer,
For the meaning,
Five and six are the devil's kiss,
So seven better be heaven.

I saw you turn to him,
As the last guests were leaving.
And then you caught my eyes,
Bowed your head in grieving,
And said,

One is the touch,
Two is the feeling,
Three is the answer,
For the meaning,
Five and six are the devil's kiss,
So seven better be heaven.
One is the touch,
Two is the feeling,
Three is the answer,
For the meaning,
Five and six are the devil's kiss,
So seven better be heaven.

    My OpinionThis is the first song of stars i heard years before i properly got into them and it has such a beautiful sentiment. I love how the guy bows his head "in grieving" and repeats the steps suggesting they feel exactly the same way to try it the seventh time. How can it be anything other than heaven when they've already triumphed the other six and still want to go again.

    Also some corrections "They go..." (not recall), "It ends up in you leaving", "It's all about the trust", "Four the meaning" and "Three is the Ulcer".

    General CommentThis song is absolutely adorable. I think it's about a relationship that's kind of going wrong but he wants to make it work.

    General CommentIt sounds like an on again, off again relationship. The seventh time better be heaven. Hey, seven's a lucky number, right?

    General CommentFour* the meaning.
    I always heard "Three is the ulcer." Proven wrong!

    The steps are definitely the best part of this song.

    General CommentThis is a very good song from stars, I wonder why there is so little comments on this one?

    I know there's alot of meaning behind these lyrics, but I don't understand it all. There are seven reasons/steps obviously.. what's supposed to be devil's kiss? And why did the girl turned to "him"? Are they not together?
