About Filling Up with Heaven

"Filling Up with Heaven" is a song by the British synthpop group The Human League. It is taken from the Octopus album of 1995. "Filling Up with Heaven" was the third and final single to be taken from the Octopus album. It was jointly written by lead singer Philip Oakey and Producer Ian Stanley (formerly of Tears for Fears). It was released on 5 June 1995; after the success of the previous two singles it was expected to equal the chart position of Tell Me When and One Man in My Heart. But unlike the two previous singles it was not play listed by BBC Radio 1 and received minimal national airplay, affecting sales. The single eventually peaked at number 36 in the UK singles chart, spending a total of two weeks in the charts.

Once there was a vision
Once there was a glow
Once there was a certainty
No chance could overthrow
Hope was scorched by summer
Crushed and beaten down
Once there was a winner
Now there was a clown
Without you life had seemed so
But now I'm
Filling up with Heaven
Without you life had
Seemed so hostile
Filling up with Heaven
But maybe with you it's all worthwhile
Now I'm filling up with Heaven
No baby no baby no baby no
Filling up
No baby no baby baby baby no
Filling up
No baby no baby no baby no
No baby no baby baby baby no
All the fortune that my
Luck had brought
It couldn't even make me smile
Without you life had seemed so
A lonely hideaway my last resort
All achievement infantile
Now I'm
Filling up with Heaven
Without you life had
Seemed so hostile
Filling up with Heaven
But maybe with you it's all worthwhile
Hey hey hey
As the years had passed by
I became more cynical
All the magic had died
My existence clinical
Ow ow ow ow
But now I'm
Filling up with Heaven
Down down
Down down
Filling up
Without you life had
Seemed so hostile
Down down
Down down
Hey hey hey hey
Filling up with Heaven
But maybe with you it's all worthwhile
Woah woah woah woah
Now I'm
Filling up with Heaven
Without you life had
Seemed so hostile
Down down
Down down
Filling up filling up
Filling up with Heaven
But maybe with you it's all worthwhile
Ow ow ow ow ow
Woah woah woah
Now I'm
Filling up with Heaven
Without you life had seemed so
Hostile
Down down
Down down
Filling up with Heaven
But maybe with you it's all worthwhile
Hey hey hey hey
Without you life had
Seemed so hostile
Down down
Down down
Filling up
But maybe with you it's all worthwhile
