She was lost
In so many different ways
Out in the darkness with no guide
I know the cost of a losing hand
But for the grace of God, go I

Oh I, I found heaven on earth
You are my last, my first
And then I hear this voice inside
Ave Maria

I've been alone
When I'm surrounded by friends
How could the silence be so loud
But I still go home knowing that I've got you
There's only us when lights go down

You are my heaven on earth
You are my hunger, my thirst
I always hear this voice inside
Singing Ave Maria

Sometimes love can come and pass you by
While your busy making plans
Suddenly hit you and then you realize
It's out of your hands
Baby you got to understand

You are my heaven on earth
You are my last, my first
And then I hear this voice inside
Ave Maria
Ave Maria
Ave Maria
Ave Maria

    She is likening her love for her beau as to that of Mary for her son, both a blessed gift from God given because of His grace. Ave Maria harkens back to the words of angel Gabriel in telling Mary that she would bear a son. Would it be too far a stretch to assume that Mary was lost before God placed his hand on her, and blessed her with her son?

    Its simply a love song.. Saying her heaven on earth is her partner.. Even when times are tough and frends cant even help her.. She still goes on knowwing she has that one true love.. He is everything to her.. Hunger.. Thirst.. She was busy being a superstar and love was passin her by.. Till she met the one..

    In this song Lady B sing about her love for someone and we all know who that love goes to. All I would like to say is Jay-Z is very lucky and Bee keep up the good song.
