Locked Out of Heaven - Bruno Mars

www.last.fmBy Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Don't want love. Just want to have fun. And just for tonight...



My Take: Bruno starts off “a sinner”, with “no faith,” and unwilling to “put his heart on the line.” He thinks that sex will “save” him to “paradise.” But Bruno knows better. He’s done it before in other songs and been left Talking to the Moon and catching a Grenade… Sex isn’t Heaven. So Bruno’s right. He’s locked out of heaven, looking for happiness in the wrong place: sex. He does need to “change his ways.” He needs faith. He needs a change of heart. We all do.

Ask Yourself: Where are you looking for happiness? Make the right choice, and don’t get yourself Locked Out of Heaven.

Never had much faith in love or miracles
Never wanna put my heart on the line

I'm gonna get every time you spend the night.

Cause your sex takes me to paradise

Open up your gates cause I can't wait to see the light
And right there is where I wanna stay.
