Walking Piece Of Heaven
Dennis Marsh Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

What's that around your head, is it a halo?
And what's that on your shoulders, is it wings?
You must be a walkin' piece of heaven
Or is it love that makes me see these things

Around you is a light that keeps on glowin'
When you speak do I hear angels sing?
You must be a walkin' piece of heaven
Or is it love that makes me see these things

When we met you gave me strength to face the world
I believe you're special, you're no ordinary girl

Am I seein' light or am I dreaming?
Do I hear the rush of angels wings?
You must be a walkin' piece of heaven




Or is it love that makes me see these things
Or is it love that makes me see these things
