Heaven's just a sin away oh wo just a sin away
I can't wait another day I think I'm givin' in
Though I'd love to hold you tight Oh wo be with you tonight
But that still won't make it right 'cause I belong to him.

Oh way down deep inside I know that it's all wrong
Your eyes keep tempting me and I never was that strong- ong.

Oh devil's got me now Oh wo gone and got me now
I can't fight him anyhow I think he's gonna win.

Heaven's just a sin away Oh wo just a sin away
Heaven help me when I say I think I'm givin' in lead

Heaven's just a sin away Oh wo just a sin away
I can't wait another day I think I'm givin' in
Though I'd love to hold you tight Oh wo be with you tonight
But that still won't make it right 'cause I belong to him

    My understanding of the song. She belongs to the Lord she's trying to do her best to resist temptation. But there's this man that she is tempted by, (sexually) I'm thinking from wanting to be with him tonight but she knows it's wrong. She's praying heaven help me now but the temptation is so strong she knows in her heart she will eventually give in. So when heaven is just a sin away, she's on the right path to heaven except for this one sin she is losing the battle. That Satan is tempting her in such a way she thinks she's giving in. Heaven is just that one sin away if she can resist she's home free.

    2. An alternate meaning, she's married and tempted to be with another man. She thinks things would be better (heaven) with him and to be with him while married is the sin that once committed will lead her to her heaven. And like most people she doesn't want to take responsibility that she's considering this it's the devil that made her do it.

    Personally I think the 1st is correct the 2nd one was my ex-wife.
