Halo Lyrics

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 up 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...

    This song refers to a woman that was scorned by love. She built up walls to protect her heart from being hurt again. A man came along and treated her with respect, dignity, and showed her what her strengths were. Had faith in her as a person. She fell in love with him before she realized what had happened. The risk she is talking about taking is the risk of getting hurt.

    I see this song as a woman who was hurt before and never wanted to put her heart on the line for anyone! She met a man who took the time for her and never judged her. He called her angel from the beginning and made her feel so special. She gave him a piece of her heart as the walls fell down and she opened up. She knew from day one that it would be over one day and she took a risk because she felt he needed her too. Even though she can't be with him in this lifetime she will always hold what he has taught her in her heart!

    Those of you trying to incorporate religious meanings to this song are completely wrong. It's obviously about how she was in love, and was hurt badly. She planned on never falling in love again, hence "the walls I built".
    However, she finds someone, (angel, saving grace, guy with halo). He is so perfect that she compares him to an angel. Her "walls...tumbled down".
    She took the risk and doesn't regret it. Two thumbs up for love!

    I believe this song is stating how you can see only the good in someone how you can see their pure heart and when you're in love you can feel their light shine from within upon you. Making you addicted to their energy and presence in your life. This type of love can save you from becoming hard and stern and cold thinking the world is against you because the love given to you is all encompassing.

    She fell in love and was hurt,then she built a wall ,then she met a guy who was like an angel he broke the wall,he broke her rules but she was helpless,she had given him her heart even though it was a risk ,she did'nt bother because she was never going to leave him,he was everything she needed. that what I think about it

    Halo is a song that is entirely symbolized by love. The song focusing on how you can build walls within your experiences of a love that was hurtful to you emotionally, but it was supposed to happen that way in order to set the direction of certain gifted people to find the true expressions of love. Control, selfish desires, limits the world sets on people, deconstructed communication…those are what we initially begin love as. Then we realize that it’s about accepting someone, flaws and all, in order to promote a level of healing that opens yourself to the divine. God is love and only God can remember all the walls she had build, but they were walls that never should have existed, which is why it they don’t make a sound. JC and her past life experiences helped her to find the saving grace that is between her and God only. The song reflects JC her soulmate, who also shares her spiritual knowledge as well as God and the light that he shines on you, even through the darkest times. To say the song is about love, not God, doesn’t make any sense when God wants love, kindness, compassion, and more importantly to always understand the flaws we have, different from each other or not, are things we need to help each other heal. In order to that, you need acceptance of those flaws. To promote trust, honesty, intimacy (for what it really is), and commitment.

    It's not about god y'all. The song is about love, and how she has opened up. It's sweet. The song is quite nice I believe.

    This song is about a woman who was broken hearted by a man she loves. She swore never to fall again but when true love came along, she broke all her rules to fall in love again.

    This song is about girl who fell in love with a man who cannot neglect .She know she is getting hurt .Although she made a wall between them but that wall is outstanding for her love and whatever, how many rules he breaks she cannot let him out ,she is trying to give win to him and fight against her be an angel with positive thinking. Anyway, she has to take the risk because he is her saving grace. she is asking him to take her out of this tragic mind hitting his rays because he is the only one who can pull her back to the ground.
    This is completely a mind of a girl.
    Turbulance of her mind perfectly expressing here. Her love is her everything. Everything means everything. How she shut him out. She will
    built the wall again and again until her man know her or until she become really an angel.

    I think this song is by Beyoncé but she’s also a actress of the lion king and it also had some little beats but he had this idea to present the music video to me, and it sound like the lion king sound on the guitar, but I’m going to control your self. I’m confidence, and I really glad that I’m teaching myself into my life.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    If she was singing about love that is perfect, a love that has somehow engulfed her very heart and soul and given her a real peace that surpasses every & all understanding.... then she is singing about "JESUS". Because He is the only one that can heal that kind of hurt she is singing about. But I don't think she is singing about JESUS. Maybe
    Or she could just be singing about her husband.

    Not all of these songs take any particular stand on religion, however. Some of them are merely spiritual in nature, while expressing a humanistic view that leaves an actual deity out of the scene, yours to believe or doubt.

    I believe that the song reminds me, that I’m spending time with Celeste, and made her happy to see this song.
