Lyrics
:

We've got to find a way to heaven
Before our lives reach the ends
Oh why is life oh so fatal?
Each day is filled with emptiness

The world is full of cruel beauty
We fall asleep so afraid
If there's a God in the heavens
When will he answer our prayer? Oh yeah.

Love is not of the earth
Love is spiritual
Yes it is
Yes it is
Love is not of the earth
Love is spiritual
Yes it is
Yes it is
Spiritual

Look through the windows of the soul
Heaven is somewhere in the heart
We've got to find our salvation
Tomorrow we may have to part

Love is not of the earth
Love is spiritual
Yes it is
Yes it is
Love is not of the earth
Love is spiritual
Yes it is
Yes it is

For what is a man without a woman
Heaven on earth is hell without you
Yes it is
Oh yes it is

(Yes it is)

Love is not of the earth
Love is spiritual
Yes it is
Yes it is
Love is not of the earth
Love is spiritual
Yes it is
Yes it is
(Spiritual)
(Spiritual)

We've got to find a way to heaven
(Spiritual)
(Spiritual)
(Spiritual)
Love is, love is spiritual
(Spiritual)
We've got to find a way to heaven
(Spiritual)
Love is spiritual
Spiritual
Love is �. spiritual
Spiritual
Oh lord
(Spiritual)
Love is spiritual
Yes it is, yes it is
Yes it is, yes it is
(Spiritual)
Got to find a way, find a way to heaven
Somehow, somehow, somehow
I gotta find a way
A way to be together
We gotta find away
'Cause love is spiritual

Mike Peters Notes
:”Yes. ‘The world is full of cruel beauty’, the more we know, the less we understand. The deeper the love of life, the greater the need for faith. Faith in the need for a better world to live in and faith in the hope of a better world beyond. My faith veers between the certain and the uncertain as I hope this record shows. I have tried to hold nothing back.”
(21st Century Fanzine #2)

I wrote “Spiritual” just before my father died, which was immediately prior to recording “Raw”. If I had continued to record another album with The Alarm I would have offered the it to the group for consideration along with any other songs I may written at the time.
