Overall Meaning

In Bruno Mars's song "Locked Out of Heaven," we can see that the singer is expressing his love for a person who has made him feel something that he has never felt before. The first verse suggests that he has never believed in love or miracles and has never wanted to put his heart on the line for someone else. However, being with this person has given him something spiritual that has made him feel like he's born again every time they spend the night together. In the chorus, he explains that this person's sex takes him to paradise and has made him feel like he's been locked out of heaven for too long. He is grateful to this person for making him feel special and loved.


The second verse continues the theme of the first verse in expressing how this person has changed his ways. He proclaims that he is ready to change his sinful ways because of this person's influence. He refers to this person as the light and wants to stay with them forever. In the chorus, he repeats the idea that being with this person makes him feel like he's in paradise and has been locked out of heaven for too long. The bridge of the song is a plea to this person to let him stay with them and spend the rest of his days there.
