"It's a very special song because when I was trying to write the music part of it, Rick Nowels said, 'What would you do if this was your next song?'. Then I could hear the music of what to do. We worked on it and it really came pretty easily." - Ellen Shipley (songwriter)
"The chorus came first. When we had that title, 'Heaven Is A Place On Earth,' we went into a studio and we started jamming on chords and singing against it and in our process we got that chorus and everything was built around that. So, it was like a story of why you think heaven is a place on earth: because love comes first." - Ellen Shipley (songwriter)
"'Heaven is a Place on Earth'' is a kind of hopeful song. I think it's saying you can create your own piece of heaven on your own patch. It's a song about peace of mind and it's also partly a love song." - Belinda Carlisle
