What was love?
Something that I just dreamed of
Somewhere in the corner of my heart
Rippin' and tearin' me apart
Oh, I was numb and had my demons
I lost hope, you gave me reason

Angels save me
God forgave me
But you alone take me higher than heaven
I don't need mercy, nothing can hurt me
As long as you're with me, I'm higher than heaven

Goin' insane
I was on a one-way train
Surrounded by my so-called friends
But this ain't where the story ends
Or where it begins
I was numb and had my demons
I gave up, but you believed

Angels save me
God forgave me
But you alone take me higher than heaven
I don't need mercy, nothing can hurt me
As long as you're with me, I'm higher than heaven

    No matter how much we trouble we get our selfs into there will always be one person who will be there for you. One person who will stay by your side and not think any different of you.

    The song is obviously about that one special person in your life. And as "long as your with me. I'm higher then heaven" it's about how you love someone and make your life feel complete. At least that's what i got from it :)

    I personally think this song is about his god, new wife and son. I followed james very closely on american idol and learned a lot about him. He has torettes syndrome and was constantly teased and tormented and his music took him to places where he felt safe. He then met his girlfriend and they had a child together. James is a very sensitive human being and i truely love him and what he has accomplished.

    I was down and out and was saved by the angels through an earthly angel who showed me the power of true love to overpower any self destructive lifestlye. As always god forgave me and i was able to forgive myself with the power of the value that earthly angel gave back to my life.
