Oh yeah yeah

I heard this song when I was high and it honestly sounds like Satan wrote this song himself, since he was also locked out of heaven and fornication on Earth is his imitation of "Paradise" and since he was the Angel of music now he wants the whole world to have his same fate...listen to the somg again and tell me what Im saying doesnt make sense..along with Pitbull and Christina saying "But until the gates are open, I just wanna feel this moment" wtf!? She really saying until Heavens gates are open Im gonna do whatever the hell I want on Earth..idk about you guys but Im startin to see the big picture as far as music on the radio goes

Bruno Mars has sold his soul to the Devil. He is Locked out of heaven. Prety Simple if you think about it.

Don't fall for the catchy tune! do not be deceived. the song is clear: his paradise is with the earth. He wants to just stay here on earth forever and have freedom to have sex and live to please himself. young generations i plead with you not to take this road. do not sucome to the pop generation of music and mindlessly listen to music. Recognize that this song, although very catchy, has a very dark approach to it. Know that there is more than this earth and more than our fleshy desires. Be with our Father in heaven whom loves us enough to freely gives us his kingdom by his son Jesus Christ.

When he says "open up your gates cause I can't wait to see the light" I think it means for his partner to open up her legs. For the light thingimigigor, cum is around white, am I correct? If you look at the rest of the lyrics of this song, you will see it is mostly about making love.

- Basically he was never in love before now he is. He was a player now been with this person is making him think twice about been a sinner. He feels so good about this new love that makes him feel he is now in paradise (in this sense paradise equals heaven) and that before he was locked out of it. Now he is in heaven, love heaven.

i think it's simply about someone who finally found 'the one'.
he used to be happy-go-lucky kinda guy, who pursue some no strings attached 'good time', didn't take relationship seriously.
but after being 'together' with this one girl, he feels a deeper feeling than usual.
'cause you make me feel like, i've been locked out of heaven , for too long'
he thought his usual 'good time' are good, but with her is beyond everything he ever felt before.
it's great, and brings him some kind of happiness.
'can i stay here? spend the rest of my days here?"
the feeling is so intense that it make him seriously consider this girl to be 'the one' that meant for him forever.

But now he is totaly in love with me.
Cause U make me feel like: I be locked out of heaven.

I agree with what other people said, but I have a feeling you can also think of the song as a guy who pissed the girl off, so she doesn't want to have sex with him and he wants her aka locked out of heaven...
but you can interpret it any way you want

To me this song is about a newer relationship that has a deep emotional connection with a women who is compassionate, loving, and guinuinely cares about this man. She is like truth and a light in his life. She shares heavenly truths with this man who has never experienced such and emotional and spiritual connection with a women. As far as the sexual relationship, either they have just began the sexual relationship and he feels this strong emotional spiritual connection during sex or he dreams of how the sex would be if they took their relationship to that place. Locked out of heaven refers to him never experiencing a sexual relationship that had spiritual roots before this relationship. It's almost like this women cares about his soul, wanting to help him find peace and he never wants to leave this place.

He has been locked out of heaven because he has sold his soul to the devil for fame, sex and money.

Is it me or is every putting to much into the interpretations? He said it himself that this album is more sensual. I'm not a genius, but I'm guessing sensuality and spirituality are kinda different? Anyway this song to me is about a guy (Bruno) that LOVES to have sex with his girl (Jessicannexed the sex with her is his own slice of heaven. The lyrics sound like he wrote them probably durning sex (I know kinda weird) or after reflecting the time in with he was locked out of heaven aka her vagina.
Anyway Every song is interpreted diffently.

It's a song about the way he feels when he's having sex with this girl. It feels like he has been "locked out of heaven for too long", as if before here he has never felt so much pleasure. Now is a revelation and he can't get enough of it. He wants to stay right here (in bed) forever.
"Open your gate" is basically a request to open her legs, because thanks to that he can "see the light", haha. This girl is divine and sex with her become something spiritual. It's an ode for this girl, or more for what he can do with her, hmm hmm... Well, it can be taken as a compliment but it's kind of odd :')

He is after some chick who won't put out.. he begs for it because he whipped

You know who's locked out of heaven? Santan. This song is clearly evil and linked with the illuminati. Be careful to not let it influence you.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

because he says open up your gates cause i cant wait to see the light. so i think he is talking about her vigina and he wants to put his dick in there
