Beyonce - Halo Lyrics

Remember those walls I built
Well Baby they are tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make 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 angel now

It’s like I’ve been awaken
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray won’t fade away

I can see your halo
I can feel your halo
I can see your halo
I can feel your halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light
I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t begin
To pull me back to the ground again

It’s like I’ve been awaken
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I’m never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray won’t fade away

I can see your halo
I can feel your halo
I can see your halo
I can feel your halo

  7. Whitney Says:

    I absolutely LOVE this song :-) it reminds me of my girlfriend. I never thought I would fall again.

    I honestly cannot STAND Beyonce. But she really did pull through on this song….good job. Although I think Leona Lewis would have performed it through and through with her heart

  8. jessie Says:

    good song, great lyrics.. i agree with you whitney, leona lewis would have made it awesome

  9. Anna Says:

    I believe it’s “it’s like I’ve been awakin’” not “it’s like I’ve been awaken.”

    This song is really awesome. My girlfriend of 5 years broke up with me a week ago. I’m pretty down, so this really got me. Her status on messenger has actually has the quote” gravity cant even begin to pull me back to the ground again”. Not too sure what it means but its weird that I was actually listening to this song as I read it.

  42. NeSSaG Says:

    Only you can relate to this song if you have that love like that. I wonder if she sings that with her man in mind. I mean how does she sing this song with so much power. its like the song is so real. Love Beyonce she is the best.

  43. Jamie-lee Says:

    Fantastic song but I disagree with anyone that thinks Leona Lewis would have done better. It would not be possible to do it any better than beyonce, she really nailed it.

  47. Lady Diva Says:

    @ Savannah…Why is it when someone has an opinion they’re automatically a “hater.” Little girl, please fall back. Not everyone is a Beyonce stan like you. Anyway, I’m not a fan of Bey, but I do like this song. The lyrics are the best part, IMO.
