Heaven Tonight
by Hole

Album: Celebrity Skin (1998)
  • Here comes the sun in the form of a girl
    She's the finest sweetest thing in the world
    Take you to heaven tonight
    I feel the horses coming galloping
    In the summer rain
    Take you to heaven tonight
    'Cause I love you for what you are

    I'll gallop to you, tonight, tonight
    We'll ride, I'll give it to you
    We're going to heaven tonight
    Tonight

    Out on the winding road I couldn't wait
    Oh baby, I was afraid
    Headed for heaven tonight
    I'll go to heaven tonight
    I feel the horses coming galloping
    I will never grow old
    I'll go to heaven tonight
    Because I love you for what you are

    I'll gallop to you tonight, tonight
    We'll ride, I'll bow down to you
    We're going to heaven tonight
    Tonight

    I can't believe that I can be happy
    Someone will come again
    I can't be happy
    Oh, stop your crying
    You can be happy
    Go to heaven when you make me happy

    Here comes the kiss that I never had
    Nothing feels like this
    Headed for heaven tonight
    I love you

    Here comes a storm in the form of a girl
    She's the finest sweetest thing in the world
    I'll go to heaven tonight for what you are

    I'll gallop to you tonight, tonight
    We'll ride, I'll bow down to you
    We'll go to heaven tonight
    Tonight (3 x's)
    Take it tonight (2 x's)
    Take me tonight
    Tonight (2 x's) Writer/s: Eric T Erlandson, Courtney M. Love

  • Jason from New Orleans, LaGreat song. So sad.
  • Sarah from Yuba City, CaOhh yes! I adore this song. Admittedly, this is probably the only song on Celebrity Skin that i just wasnt too keen on at first. (But that's probably because I was so used to hearing their more rough songs like "Violet" and "Pretty on the Inside.") Eventually, I came to love this song. Just the melody and the lyrics give off a cheesy, joyful vibe.
    And you can hear it in the movie Never Been Kissed, starring Courtney's friend/Frances Cobain's godmother Drew Barrymore.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnHole's cutest song! I love everything about, the lyrics, music, the melody - a true winner!
