  1. I commend Troye for writing and singing a song like this. Good for him and the public. It might not be a raging hit for the general public, but it could easily be an “iconic” song for the gay audience.

    Thank you to him for doing this song.

    Lyrics for Heaven by Troye Sivan

    “HEAVEN” (feat. Betty Who)

    The truth runs wild
    Like a tear down a cheek
    Trying to save face, and daddy heart break
    I’m lying through my teeth

    This voice inside
    Has been eating at me
    Trying to replace the love that I fake
    With what we both need

    The truth runs wild
    Like kids on concrete
    Trying to sedate my mind in its cage
    And numb what I see

    Awake, wide eyed
    I’m screaming at me
    Trying to keep faith and picture his face
    Staring up at me

    Without losing a piece of me
    How do I get to heaven?
    Without changing a part of me
    How do I get to heaven?
    All my time is wasted
    Feeling like my heart’s mistaken, oh
    So if I’m losing a piece of me
    Maybe I don’t want heaven?

    [Betty Who:]
    The truth runs wild
    Like the rain to the sea
    Trying to set straight the lines that I trace
    To find some relief
    This voice inside
    Has been eating at me

    Trying to embrace the picture I paint
    And colour me free

    Without losing a piece of me
    How do I get to heaven?
    Without changing a part of me
    How do I get to heaven?
    All my time is wasted
    Feeling like my heart’s mistaken, oh
    So if I’m losing a piece of me
    Maybe I don’t want heaven?

    So I’m counting to fifteen
    Counting to fifteen, counting to fifteen
    So I’m counting to fifteen
    Counting to fifteen, counting to fifteen
    So I’m counting to fifteen
    Counting to fifteen, counting to fifteen
    So I’m counting to fifteen
    Counting to fifteen, counting to fifteen

    Without losing a piece of me
    How do I get to heaven?
    Without changing a part of me
    How do I get to heaven?
    All my time is wasted
    Feeling like my heart’s mistaken, oh
    So if I’m losing a piece of me
    Maybe I don’t want heaven?

    The truth runs wild
    Like a tear down a cheek

    I questioned these lyrics:

    “Without losing a piece of me
    “How do I get to heaven?
    “Without changing a part of me
    “How do I get to heaven?”

    But then he corrects himself with:

    “All my time is wasted
    “Feeling like my heart’s mistaken, oh
    “So if I’m losing a piece of me
    “Maybe I don’t want heaven?”

  2. Troye used to be cute, funny and sexy, now he’s ugly and a crashing bore. I’m tired of the cry-me-a-river crap that so many talented, young gay singers often spew. I’m not interested in your emotional inadequacies, insecurities and inferiority complexes. Hey Troye – time to man-up! We’re way past those bad old milquetoast-whining- wimp days. Either Rock N Roll or STFU. And lose that nose ring. Gross!

      1. “I’ll bring a cup of tea right up”

        “Gramps” made need more than just a cup of tea.

        1. Actually, at home, I do like it warmer, about 76-78-ish works for me (’cause I’m usually nude at home), and peach iced tea is my beverage of choice (whenever fresh cum is unavailable).

          Captain Proton – are you like psychic or something?

    1. Pedo much? How can anyone use such a lewd descriptions of these kids? Or find them cuter than Troye for that matter.

      I may not like the hairdo, the nose ring, the music and the facial expressions that come straight from MTV’s R&B noise makers with fake boobs and arses, but Spud still shines through in a couple of shots. I am not looking for his old self though, I just hope he finds a new one, his last album was very poor musically, including his great voice.

      At least the video is brilliant and courageous.

      1. @Chimel:
        “Pedo much? How can anyone use such a lewd descriptions of these kids? Or find them cuter than Troye for that matter.”

        First, they aren’t “lewd” descriptions. So many young kids are “drop dead cute” …. it’s in their evolutionary makeup (I could do deeper into this but you’re not mature enough to understand). You very obviously suffer from an acute case of political correctness without the correctness.

        And, Troye? He’s good looking, but he doesn’t come within a country mile of being “as cute” as tens of millions of other kids are — we can start with East and Southeast Asians, Latins on two Continents and the obligatory whites.

    2. horsey, thanks for that. It was fun to watch. Regular showmen they are. And know how to play those trumpets. Just too bad those suits make them look like mini Donald Trumps (nearly a pun there).

      And you’re right, they are cute.

  3. Troy is so cute and talented … loved the video and he has turned into a handsome guy 😍 Maybe not to everyone’s taste but some of us do appreciate something different for a change.

  4. not sure horsey, they look suspiciously as though they might grow up to be trump-eters

    and it takes all sorts of beauty to raise a smile

    its good to see Troye actually acknowledging the history, so many youngs don’t even realise there was a struggle, and in a way thank a non-specific deity (or other unseen mystic or otherwise force) for that.

  5. Troye is great, but his 80’s- early 90’s look is so cringe worthy. It seems to be “the thing” for people in his age range. I grew up seeing that time period for what it was- tacky!
