Never had much faith in love or miracles
Never wanna put my heart on the line
But swimming in your waters is something spiritual
I'm born again every time you spend the night

PRE-CHORUS
Cause your sex takes me to paradise
Yeah your sex takes me to paradise
And it shows, yeah, yeah, yeah

Cause you make me feel like,
I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long
Yeah you make me feel like,
I've been locked out of heaven
For too long, for too long

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh!
Oh yeah, yeah

You can make sinner change his ways
Open up your gates cause I can't wait to see the light
And right there is where I wanna stay

Spend the rest of my days here

Meaning, Main Idea, and Message of The Song

Falling in love can sometimes change one's way of life. Those who usually don't believe in love and miracles can suddenly believe in both when they meet someone who makes them in love (line 1 verse ). Those who previously are afraid of taking any risks, because of falling in love, may turn into ones who fear nothing anymore (line 2 verse 1). And those sinners who usually live their life freely without taking care of any rule and convention may suddently become persons who obey the law (line 3 verse 4). And all of those changes are caused by one thing namely love.

This Bruno Mars' Locked Out Of Heaven song seems to me to tell about a man who changes his way of life as he falls in love with a girl. Unfortunately, the lyric of the song does not explain how the girl looks like. Similarly, her character is also not described in the lyric. The lyric only tells that the girl is charming in the line "Cause your sex takes me to paradise" and there's no more explanation and description about the girl which leave us the listeners to guess wildly about the girl.

Instead of explaining and describing the girl, the lyric of the song focuses on the man's feeling. So, it's just his feeling that being with the girl feels like in heaven and being away from her feels like locked out of heaven.

Well, that's my interpretation of Bruno Mars' Locked Out Of Heaven song. As usual, your comments are highly appreciated.
