Remember those walls I built
Well, baby they're tumbling down
And they didn't even put up a fight
They didn't even make a sound
I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standin' in the light of your Halo
I got my angel now

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I aint never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm lookin now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your Halo
You know you're my saving grace
You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your Halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You're the only one that I want
Think im addicted to your light
I swore I'd never fall again
But this don't even feel like falling
Gravity can't begin
To pull me back to the ground again

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I'm never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm lookin' now
Im surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your Halo
You know you're my saving grace
You're everything I need and more
Its written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your Halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo

Halo, Halo

Everywhere I'm lookin now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your Halo
You know you're my saving grace
You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your Halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo
I can feel your halo (halo) halo
I can see your halo (halo) halo

    General Comment:This song is very easy to interpret:

    It's not about God - although I would've loved it to be about Him - and if it relates to you in that way, then take it as such.

    This is a girl (or guy) who has been hurt enough to build walls around him/her. She/he doesn't trust her relationships, so when this person meets this "someone" - she/he is very "cautious" at first.

    This person even tries to "test" this person to see if they are for real.

    Its like Ive been awakened
    Every rule I had you breakin
    Its the risk that im takin

    You know how sometimes people do that "game" to test others to see if they're really sincere. Trust issue. Perhaps Beyonce's character pushed this guy over the edge to see if he would still be committed? Sometimes that's risky - because you don't know if they'll stay committed, but she tested him because she simply had to know for sure. It's a foolish way to be secure, but that's what it meant.

    However, this person came to some point in his/her life and they are convince that this special "someone" is indeed the real thing! And the "halo" revelation is that she finally sees that he's a good man! Thus, in the first verse, all her guard is let down without a fight, she trust him.

    So with that understanding, I think the rest is self explanatory. :)

    General Comment:I'm not a fan of Beyonce, I'm more into rock-n-roll, but this song is without question the best song on the album. It has been a long time since a song has moved me, and this one surely did it. It's obvious what the song is about and it should without a doubt be the next single. A+

    My Opinion:I think the song is about a girl who’s been hurt by someone that she once cared.
    In order to avoid the risk of getting hurt again, she built walls around her.

    Some time later a guy comes into her life.
    She finds it hard to stay behind those walls.
    It even happens so naturally that she couldn't even hide her feelings.
    Finally, she had the courage to step out of her comfort zone
    And take the risk to let him into her life.
    Cause she knows that he is worth of taking the risk.

    She feels like this is something new that she's never had before.
    Cause this guy embraces her and gives her so much piece and comfort
    Just like what she’s been waiting for.
    She is thankful God and praying him for making this happened.

    The words are spilled out beautifully.
    Been there, done that.
    Instead of hiding behind those walls,
    We have to bring them down to the ground to welcome new people into our lives.
    That’s a great way of helping ourselves to heal our bruises.
    We have to let go of our past.
    New day will bring new people if you learn to let our guard down

    Song Meaning:I interpret this song as a baby....being a mother of a little girl the first time i heard this song it immediately reminded me of her. esp this part:

    "Everywhere Im lookin now
    Im surrounded by your embrace
    Baby I can see your Halo
    You know youre my saving grace
    Youre everything I need and more"

    since no one yet has said it was about a child, i thought i'd comment on what i think it's about. i love this song. and who knows, maybe beyonce is preggo :))))

    General Comment:I'm pretty sure this song is about a lover that died. The "walls" that she sings of in the first verse, they had been built in order to make the whole situation of living without her partner as easily as possible... in denial, perhaps. But then she allows the walls to fall down, and she's found a way of letting him in again "I aint never gonna shut you out". She is now able to grieve, "I can see your halo". Read it again from this perspective, it's heartbreaking :(

    General Comment:i think this song is about BOTH god and a lover, she shielded herself off but god had blessed her with an angel (her lover- hence the halo part) who she can trust and finally let them in - and so letting in Gods embrace (god sent him to her) .....so basically i see it as getting a blessing from god, like an angel and being thankful because they were in the dark before

    General Comment:I was just wondering if this song is about God? Or a lover? Because it says "baby" I can see your halo.. but then she says "saving grace"... so I'm confused. Please let me know what this song literally means, thanks
