"Heaven Knows" is the second single by Taylor Hicks from his self titled debut. It was announced as the second single by Clive Davis on the American Idol (season 6) finale, where Hicks subsequently performed the song. Arista is hoping the song will revive sales of Hicks' album, after the underperformance of Hicks' first single "Just To Feel That Way". It hit the radio adds on May 28, 2007. By July 2008, it had sold about 11,000 copies. As of October 2007 the single had fared only slightly better than his first single, and had not increased sales of the album as was hoped.

The song samples Ray Charles' "What'd I Say" and Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar".
