Have you ever been to heaven at night (heaven at night)
Have you ever been to heaven at night
Heaven at night

Have you ever been to heaven at night
Closing your eyes the feeling so right
At first you might see this one bright beam of light
Clutching your soul to the toll of the blight
Happy unites and feelings take flight
Blind to the evils you give them no sight
Focus on floating, your focus is tight
Like you rewrote as safe for a class
To pass in the night
Have you ever seen the ending so nice
You feel so free like you're high as a kite
Like how you feel if you drink some bud light
Followed by Jag
Models will smile then tilt their head back
These are a few of the visions I like
Mixed in with light, these are my favorites to dream in the night
This is my heaven at night

Have you, ever been to heaven at night (heaven at night)
Heaven at night (heaven at night)
Oh have you
Ever been to heaven at night (heaven at night)
Heaven at night (heaven at night)

Man
Oh, I need what the world can't give me (can't give me)
Can't give me
Man
Oh, I see what the world can't show me (can't show me)
Can't show me
God
Oh, I lack what the world can't give me (can't give me)
Can't give me
God
Oh, I sing but the world can't hear me (can't hear me)
Can't hear me

Heaven at night
Heaven at night

Have you ever been to heaven at night (heaven at night)
Heaven at night
Oh, have you ever been to heaven at night
Heaven at night

    Song MeaningHeaven at nite is perhaps Kid Cudi's most revealing song yet. Kid Cudi wasn't inspired by his dreams nor partying. He's talking about meditation while under the influence of weed. He specifically mentions several key signals of meditation such as the bright light, the feel of floating, and force of suction that literally feels like something is tugging on your soul. In Kid Cudi's interview with Karmaloop he sheds light on his experience with weed while he was living in a small room with no source of light besides the moon. He would smoke weed and meditate. Many of his songs hints his experiences of meditation. Hence the title Heaven at Nite. Many people who meditate experience out of body experience in which they feel like they spiritually enter heaven. I personnally have experienced this before discovering Kid Cudi and all of his music scream of the same experiences. I highly recommend you to try it. You wouldn't dare challenge this theory once you have. Feel free to contact me should you like to know more. Www.veritasluxmea.weebly.com.

    General Commentin the song cudi is basically talkin about his dreams. and he saying that his dreams are his heaven at nite. anyone who listens to cudi knows that his music is inspired by his dreams. so it just saying this is wht i picture at nite. then he asks the audience have u seen heaven at nite. basically playing on words wht ur heaven at night. it reallly brillaint for such a young rapper

    General Commentalthough i appreciate the people who take time to upload lyrics on this site, you have quite a few mistakes
    After "crutching your soul" it goes "TO THE TOLL OF THE BLIGHT".
    ALso, it's happy "UNITES", not "unights".
    It's not "Like you be road ass you safe for a class" it is "like you RE-WROTE AS you safe for a class" (which I think he's referring to when you copy or plagiarize someones writing but you re-write it so ur safe for a class cause your teacher won't know)
    It's not "followed by jag", its "followed by YAY" (as in cocaine)
    It's not
    "God
    Oh, I like what the world can't give me (can�t give me)", it's
    "DOUBT
    Oh, I LACK what the world can't give me (can't give me)",
    also it's "DOUBT" instead of "GOD" the second time as well
    Please correct!!! Thanks

    General Commenti think this also has a theme of experiencing some of his greatest highs while out partying. and that he is chasing these universal truths in the ecstasy of partying but isnt quite getting what he wants and feels like theres no other way to get it "i lack what the world cant give me"... anyway

    a large portion of his heaven is associated with the heaven of drunken joy:
    You feel so free like you're high as a kite
    Like how you feel if you drink some bud light
    Followed by Jag

    My OpinionCudi Zone is also another song which he talks about meditation. The sound in his mind is the sound one would hear during a relaxed meditation. I highly recommend you check that out too.

    Song MeaningIt's easy to understand it's basically saying no matter how bad life is you can still go to sleep and go to "Heaven at Night".
