Stairway to the Skies Lyrics

Play "Stairway to the Skies"
on Amazon Music

Seven seconds to the rise,
can't believe I'm still alive
And heaven was waiting for me
I thought this would be the end,
but I know you'll understand
All that is keeping me here

I dream of a stairway to the skies
my angel is coming down...

    I think this song is about losing your husband, wife or partner to an untimely death. The singer is left on Earth and filled with the longing to find a way to reach her angel in heaven. She dreams of being reunited with her lost love and holding him in her arms once more.

    I think that,after a fight for being a good person,a religious,you realize that maybe is not enough to assure you a place in heaven and thinks for another way to reach to the heavens door,in the song that person is blinded by regrets and hopes for a new start in life.Who knows

    i think this song is about a person,christian in faith,who dreams of a place in heaven but is hindered by there desire to do something against their faith,they feel the need to do this deed but still they cant risk losing a place in heaven
