    Halo,, does it mean your grace?

    So, finally, does "Halo" mean your grace? Is it a metaphor for someone's Charisma or love or whatever? Can you tell me what it compares to?

    Halo-Beyonce

    Everywhere I'm looking now
    I'm surrounded by your embrace
    Baby I can see your halo
    You know you're my saving grace
    You're everything I need and more
    It's written all over your face
    Baby I can feel your halo
    Pray it won't fade away

    A halo is the circle of light shown around the heads of saints in traditional religious pictures. It is a sign of sainthood, of holiness.

    In this context, it probably just means goodness or special.

    A related idiom - totally inappropriate in this context, but worth knowing anyway - applies when a usually good person does something dubious (not exactly bad, just less good than normal): their 'halo slips'.
