Inside Your Heaven

Inside Your Heaven was the coronation single for Season 4 of American Idol. Bo fans (and fans of music in general) were alternately horrified and amused by the lyrics:

Lyrics

I’ve been down, now I’m blessed
Felt a revelation comin’ around
I guess it’s right, it’s so amazing
Every time I see you I’m alive
You’re all I’ve got, you lift me up
The sun and the moonlight, all my dreams are in your eyes

I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
When a storm blows your way
I wanna be the earth that holds you
Every bit of air you’re breathin’ in, a soothin’ wind
I wanna be inside your heaven

When we touch, when we love
The stars line up, the wrong becomes undone
Naturally, my soul surrenders
The sun and the moonlight, all my dreams are in your eyes

I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
When a storm blows your way
I wanna be the earth that holds you
Every bit of air you’re breathin’ in, a soothin’ wind
I wanna be inside your heaven

When minutes turn to days and years
If mountains fall, I’ll still be here
Holding you until the day I die
I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
When a storm blows your way

I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
When a storm blows your way
I wanna be the earth that holds you
Every bit of air you’re breathin’ in, a soothin’ wind
I wanna be inside your heaven
