About Heaven Knows

"Heaven Knows" is a song by Squeeze, released as the third single from their eleventh album, Ridiculous. The single version differs significantly from the original album mix, as most of Chris Difford's vocals have been erased and replaced by new vocals from Glenn Tilbrook. The single reached number 27 in the UK Singles Chart. Three versions of the single were released, each with a different set of live B-sides. The live tracks are the same as those found on the Live at the Royal Albert Hall CD released in 1997. A third mix of "Heaven Knows" was featured prominently in the 1995 film Hackers and was never released.

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
