"Heavenly" as written by and Grant Lee Phillips....
Heavenly, heavenly
What other words
Could I use to describe
The heavenly, ivory touch of your hand
As it covers my eyes
Hushing me off to sleep
Putting my mind at ease

Lovingly, lovingly
Every caress
That you never gave
All of you knowing me like no one else
At the end of the day
Brushing my fears away
Knowing just what to say

Heavenly heavenly
No other love
Was meant to be mine
The perfectly heavenly stars up above
Were duly aligned
I had to wait for you
Now that my search is through
Heavenly, heavenly
Heavenly, heavenly
Ooh

    General CommentThis is a gorgeous song, really gorgeous.

    I think it's about a mother, but it's always seemed to me that it was about how a child sees his mother. Innocently, gently, and with need. But you should listen to the song really, the sound of it has a physical feeling of symbiosis. Very circular, very soft. If you have children, or you've ever watched a woman feed her newborn, it's just almost sacred. Inevitably there will be this soft moment where you see how woman and child are connected, and time kind of stops. This song is the literal sound of that moment. Can't say enough good things about Phillips, he's got magic for moments like that.
