What a Heavenly Way to Die
Troye Sivan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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

Takin' 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

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 manifested-fested, oh-oh

Just takin' 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

Just takin' it a-a-a-all
Just takin' it a-a-a-all
Just takin' it a-a-a-all
Just takin' it a-a-a-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

Overall Meaning

The first verse talks about two people in love laying by the poolside and telling each other that they are the one. They are tired from the sun and the long nights fade in and out. Despite this, there's no limit to their love and they have the northern lights to guide them. The chorus talks about how taking it all in with their loved one is a heavenly way to die and that forever is in their eyes. However, forever is only half the time and they want to spend every moment with each other.


In the second verse, the song mentions how the prime of their youth will eventually come and go and they will grow old. However, they can listen to this song and not accept the passing of time as long as they are together. They have manifested a world where they will always be together. The chorus is repeated again with the emphasis on spending time with each other and being together as much as possible.


The song is a beautiful love song that talks about the desire to spend every moment with someone you love. The simplicity of the lyrics resonates with people and the idea of a heavenly way to die with someone you love is an appealing thought. The song also talks about the passing of time and the inevitability of growing old but choosing to live in the moment and cherish every second. Troye Sivan's unique voice adds to the melancholy mood of the song and brings the lyrics to life.
