Heaven 17

Heaven 17 are an English New Wave synthpop band originating from Sheffield in the early 1980s. Originally a trio, the band comprised Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously with The Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band's music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform since then, playing their first ever live concerts in 1997. Marsh left the band in 2007 and Ware and Gregory continued to perform as Heaven 17 since then. more »

How demanding life can be
With a taste for luxury
It's such a modern way to live
A new hotel for the heartbroken
A bright new generation
Running out of time
Step up for the promised land
Pay today and pay tomorrow

Just like home from home
A timeshare in the stars

We're living in a divided world
It's our own creation
It's all too much
We're out of touch
In this united nation
Define the styles, wait for a while
Here comes a new sensation
Let's get it right before tonight
We are designing heaven

I think at last I've found
A system for success
But the last thing on my mind
Is to arrest my own excess
The things that really count
Don't seem to have a price
Discover what you're missing
Now that it's your turn you can't wait

I say it's up to you
You say it's up to me

We're living in a divided world
It's our own creation
It's all too much
We're out of touch
In this united nation
Define the styles, wait for a while
Here comes a new sensation
Let's get it right before tonight
We are designing heaven

I'm high enough to see
Nothing to lose
I feel relief
And disbelief
Now I can see

Did you ever wonder
Just how easy it would be ?
To try to rearrange
Your state of mind
If nature had a choice
Think you know what it would be
Let us to a woman or a man
Try humanity

We're living in a divided world
It's our own creation
It's all too much
We're out of touch
In this united nation
Define the styles, wait for a while
Here comes a new sensation
Let's get it right before tonight
We are designing heaven
