Troye Sivan - What a Heavenly Way to Die

[Verse 1]
Tell each other you're the one
While we're laying by the poolside, poolside
Getting tired from the sun
Fading in and out of long nights, long nights
There's no limit to your love
East or west we got the north lights, north lights
Oh oh, take in it all

What a heavenly way to die
What a time to be alive
Because forever is in your eyes
But forever ain't half the time

I wanna spend with you, you
I wanna be with you, you
I wanna spend with you, you
I wanna be with you, you

[Verse 2]
When our prime has come and gone
And our youth is all but melted, melted
We can listen to this song
So we don't have to accept it, accept it
Just as long as you'll be home
In the world we've manifested-fested
Oh oh, just take in it all

“What a Heavenly Way to Die” is a ballad sung upon a minimalist beat by Troye Sivan. It is the eighth track from Troye’s second studio album, Bloom. In an interview with EMI Music, Troye stated the name’s inspirations: "[the song] takes its name from The Smiths’ “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out.”. Sivan and his partner heard the song on a road trip and he pictured them 30 years later, “two old gay guys” listening back and reminiscing." The title ”What A Heavenly Way To Die” is likely inspired by one of the most famous lyrics from “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out,” one of the most well-known tracks off of The Smiths’ discography. Romanticizing the abandonment of home and life for love, Morrissey sings: "And if a double-decker bus crashes into us To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die And if a ten-tonne truck kills the both of us To die by your side, well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine"
