Sent from heaven.
Sent from heaven.

Now you can wait your whole life wondering
When it's gonna come or where it's been.
You may have got your heart broken
A few times in the past
Never last as strong as it used to,
It don't feel as good as it used to (before)
And all the things you used to say,
Things you used to do, went right out the door

Ooh no more, will you be the one
That's what you tell everyone around you
But you know they've heard it all before
What more can you say
When love won't let you, walk away
And you can't help who you love
And you find yourself giving it all away
When you think you're in love
Ooh cause

[CHORUS:]
I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)
I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)

Now you can wait your whole life tryna change
What they fear from what it's been
You may have put your whole life into a man
Love aint what you thought it could've been.
Don't wanna swing your change
And you don't feel as good as you used to (before)
And everything you used to say,
Everything you used to do, went right out the door

Ooh no more, will you be the one
That's what you tell everyone around you
But you know they've heard it all before
What more can you say
When love won't let you, walk away
And it can't help who it loves
And you find yourself giving it all away
When you think you're in love
Cause I wanna be hey yeah

[CHORUS]
I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)
I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)

Everybody say
I wanna be the one you love
(I wanna be)
Everybody say
I wanna be the one you trust
(I wanna be)
Everybody say
I wanna be the one you need
(I wanna be)
Everybody say
I wanna be the one ooh
I wanna be the one

[CHORUS:]
I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)
I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)

I wanna be the one who you believe
In your heart is sent from (sent from heaven)
There's a piece of me who leaves when you gone
Because you're sent from (sent from heaven)

    It means that everyone wants to believe that the person they meet and fall in love with is the person they are meant to be with. Especially people who have been hurt and deceived in the past and realized they never were in love with the person who brought them pain and heartache. That it was never love. You think you will never forget this person and think they are the one for you, when that person is not. Eventually, you live each day like they never were in your life. We always say we are never going to fall in love again after, and then when you least expect it, you meet someone and you feel that special feeling, and you just hope and pray that this is the person sent from above, and that they feel the same way. You find it so hard to believe it's true. I'm going through this right now.

    The meaning of the song I got from it is this; She waits for love, been hurt by it. She's in a relationship now that things aren't going the way they use to so she begins to basically not care. The thing is she can't help but care. She wants to stay, no matter the problem becauase she believes he is love, Sent from heaven. And everyone knows how it is to be in a relationship and there are problems. Noone seems to care and noone does things that got them together anymore. So you say I can't do this anymore. You find yourself giving up easy on love cause you think your in love, as you know it, love hurts but you's rather be with him cause you feel that he is everything you've wanted, hence Sent From Heaven, Heven sent. I love this song cause I have been hurt many by past relationships that can make you think this new one just aint workin but this is a love that you just can't let go of. I hope you all understand what I am trying to say. Ha Ha. God Bless
