stairway to heaven Neil Sedaka
A frequent topic of discussion in the tab groups is 'what are the lyrics to 'Stairway To Heaven' about, anyway?'. Well, the narrator obviously isn't going to build a *physical* stairway to heaven - for one thing, how could he move it around without bumping it into everything? Instead, 'build a stairway to heaven' is a *metaphor* - like, you know, sometimes words have two meanings.
