Lyrics of Locked Out Of Heaven by Bruno Mars


One, two, one, two, three

 

Oh, yeah, yeah,

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Ooh!

Oh, yeah, yeah,

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Ooh!

 

Never had much faith in love or miracles

Ooh!

Never wanna put my heart on the line

Ooh!

But swimming in your water is something spiritual

Ooh!

I'm born again every time you spend the night

Ooh!

 

'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,

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Ooh!

 

You bring me to my knees, you make me testify

You can make a 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

 

'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, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Can I just stay here?

Spend the rest of my days here?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Can I just stay here?

Spend the rest of my days here?

 

'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,

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Ooh!
