Halo
Beyoncé Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breaking
It's the risk that I'm taking
I ain't never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking 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 I'm 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

Feels like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breaking
The risk that I'm taking
I'm never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking 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
Halo, halo
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Everywhere I'm looking 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

Overall Meaning

The opening lines of Beyoncé's song Halo speak of a sense of surrender—"Remember those walls I built / Well, baby, they're tumbling down." She seems amazed as she sings, "And they didn't even put up a fight / They didn't even make a sound." In the chorus, she speaks of being basked in the light of her angel's halo, standing in awe of love and letting go: "Standing in the light of your halo / I got my angel now / It's like I've been awakened / Every rule I had you breaking / It's the risk that I'm taking / I ain't never gonna shut you out." The song's message is one of hope, surrender, and letting yourself be seen, even despite the risk of getting hurt. Beyoncé reminds listeners that human connections are essential for personal growth and fulfillment.

This is the music that Beyoncé shines through, not country. Her voice is magical in this song. Beautiful.

@kesharisuthar3268

This is February 2024 and this classic, timeless and iconic song of BEYONCE continues to be exceedingly electrifying, enormously emotional, exceptionally enthralling, excellently energetic, exclusively elegant & expressive. Her singing is singularly sentimental, spellbinding, scintillating, simmering, superb, sincere, sweet and simply spectacular. ❤❤❤
