"Heaven Knows" as written by Glenn Martin Tilbrook and Christopher Henry Difford....
You're no dame, I'm no duke
Somehow love is a fluke
We've survived thick and thin
Taking knocks on the chin
In the eyes of the sad
We may be barking mad
But the truth has been ceased
We are like chalk and cheese
You wind me up and I drive you mad
It's a fact of life, it goes hand in hand
And I know that look, it's read like a book
And I realize

I don't care what the world has to say
You should know that I love you
I love you
I love you today

When the boat starts to rock
Then my ears start to block
All the words that you say
Through the night, through the day
Where there's muck there is brass
And the storm soon will pass
Then it's back to the norm
All the cold turns to warm

Sometimes I think life crawls like a snail
And all of our dreams become the wind in your sails
Without wealth it's true, who cares what you do
And I realize

I can feel the eyes behind us as we walk
I can see the ears that listen when we talk

    General CommentThis song means so much to me. I first heard this song, at the ending of one of my favorite movies, "Hackers." With all the cheesy, impossible situations that the movie contains, (( I.E. hacking on a Mac...)) aside, this song ends the movie in perfect mood, to the characters depicted in the last scene. Which in return, reminds me in a lot of ways, not nessisarily literally, of how I love the man that I do. The words to the song, seem simple, but in order to understand them fully, you have to hear the way that they are being expressed. The soft humming of the electric keyboard, gentle, soft piano notes, a hollow bodied electric, mixed with a serious man speaking along with another man belting out every word of the chourus with almost a conviction. This song is almost perfect for its highly unique stylized sense and the imagery I recieve so effortlessly from it. This song gives me shivers, it makes me cry and smile and want to right ridiculously long comments on it...I just love this song so much.
