“Heavenly Kind Of State Of Mind” by Lewis Capaldi
Lewis Capaldi’s “Heavenly Kind Of State Of Mind” is a love song revolving around a lyrical motif that liberally utilizes biblical terminology. For example, the title, more simply interpreted, illustrates how the vocalist feels edified when thinking about his “darling”. And he also feels that she was “heaven-sent… from above”, i.e. the addressee’s presence being akin to a divine blessing in his life. So basically this is a song of smittenness, chock full of religious references.
“Whether you were heaven-sent to save mе from above
Or the only one who doеsn’t hate me, that’s enough
Well I need someone to save me from original sin
You call me like a chorus only angels can sing
Now I think about you all of the time
Oh, what a heavenly kind of state of mind”
All in all, Capaldi is expressing his profound love for the recipient of the song, using several religious and biblical references to convey this in a spiritually uplifting way.

Amanda from New York City says:
“The wait of four years has been truly worth it. Lewis is back stronger and better. ‘Heavenly Kind Of State Of Mind’ is absolutely mesmerizing! It is clear he put all of his body and soul into the song and I have completely fallen in love with it. Listening to the studio version is an incredible experience, and I can’t help but play it on repeat. However, what I’m truly looking forward to is witnessing him perform it live at Hallenstadion Zürich on the 28th of June. I know it will be an experience that I will remember for a lifetime. His performances always exceed expectations and he never fails to impress me.”
Emma from Stockholm, Sweden says:
“‘Heavenly Kind Of State Of Mind’ is undeniably a very powerful song. It’s quite challenging to find words that truly explain how powerful the song is because it transcends ordinary descriptions. To fully appreciate it, one must possess a deep sense of spirituality. I watched Lewis perform “Heavenly Kind Of State Of Mind” along with a couple other songs from his “Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent” album as part of his Tiny Desk Concert and it was a breathtaking experience. His voice appears to have a newfound depth and strength, enhancing the overall brilliance of the album. I am immensely grateful to the team behind its composition – Jamie Hartman, Edd Holloway, Nick Atkinson, and Lewis himself – for composing such a beautiful masterpiece.”
Bridget from London says:
“I feel like the lyrics for this song by Lewis were written specifically for me. The song represents the deep and intense connection I share with my husband. The verses of the song depict the impact of my husband’s presence in my life. His presence is like a powerful force that defies all conventions and norms. Being around him is an extraordinary experience, something that transcends the ordinary.
And the chorus, oh, it hits me right in the heart. It emphasizes the role he plays as a savior figure, someone who brings me salvation from pain and hatred. It’s as if he has the power to rescue me from the darkest corners of my soul.
The song says “well I need someone to save me from original sin’, and that is like a sacred affirmation of our bond within the context of marriage. And the line about angels singing in a chorus speaks to the special and divine nature of our connection. It’s as if our love is something otherworldly, something magical and rare. Listening to this song reminds me of the deep spiritual connection I have with my husband. It’s a reminder of the effect we have on each other, the way our love transforms and uplifts us. So, as I immerse myself in these lyrics, I’m reminded of the intensity of our bond. Our love is like a sanctuary, a ‘Heavenly Kind Of State Of Mind.’”
