Spiritual - Katy Perry



The Experience: The way you make me feel like an angel, I can't explain why love lifts me up so high. This is spiritual, phenomenal  

The Music Video: Still waiting. 


The Meaning of Spiritual tells us how love lifts us heaven high above this world. It's not understandable, it's not something of this earth. You make me a bloom like a flower. Katy does get a little confused, treating love like an altar, seeing her boy like God. Making an idol out of love leads us to confusions like holy hell and Nirvana. But seeing love as magic or mystery leads us out of ourselves, opening deep down in my soul. God wants love to be this way, to be spiritual, between two souls


Ask Yourself: Why is love so powerful, mystical, spiritual? Or have I reduced it to earthy and material?


LYRICS:

Lay me down at your altar, baby
I'm a slave to this love
Your electric lips have got me speaking in tongues

I have prayed for a power like you
To see deep down in my soul
Oh, you make me bloom like a flower, a desert rose

Magical one, a mystery
All of your charms have worked on me
I will surrender myself
Holy hell and heaven high
You have opened up my eyes
And I am finally healed

This is spiritual, under your spell
Phenomenal, the way you make me feel
Like an angel, all aglow
Like a feather, you make me float

Flying high as a kite on your love
Lost in sweet ecstasy
Found a nirvana finally

Magical one, a mystery
All of your charms have worked on me
I will surrender myself
Holy hell and heaven high
You have opened up my eyes
And I am finally healed

This is spiritual, under your spell
Phenomenal, the way you make me feel
Like an angel, all aglow
Like a feather, you make me float

(You make me float, you make me float)

This is spiritual, under your spell
So phenomenal, the way you make me feel
Like an angel, all aglow
Like a feather, you make me float

(You make me float, oh, you make me float)
