The first time I heard it, I was thought it pretty cool, but didn't understand it.
It sounded as if a lady who had money wanted to buy her way into heaven -- with that said, that's about all I understood of the song that seemed rather dark at the seams, with it's mystical, ambiguous language, all the while speaking about "heaven".
The Vatican leader urged believers to “ask for the grace of memory, the memory of the journey that the people of God has made,” as well as for personal memory – “What God did for me, in my life, how has He made me walk.”He added that the “grace of hope” is also necessary for Christian identity, explaining that he does not mean optimism, but “something else.” “Ask for the grace to renew the covenant with the Lord who has called us every day,” Francis said.“If – for example – tomorrow an expedition of Martians came, and some of them came to us, here … Green, with that long nose and big ears, just like children paint them … He also recalled the words of Peter: “If then God gave them the same gift He gave to us when we came to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to be able to hinder God?
The four of them together created a hauntingly, uncharted, wild and amazing sound. With that said there is no mistaking the symbolism embedded in Zep's albums.
My fave of theirs was "Kashmir" and "Immigrant"Now all this talk about the occult and back masking may sound very weird and possibly a boat load of silliness, however, one can not be attracted to the likes of Alleister Crowley (like Jimmy Page was) and not be drawn in to the darkness he lived within. Words and things have meaning and both Page and Plant meant them to have meaning.

Hi Music lovers, I think Robert, the writer of the lyrics of this song, wrote the lyrics by choose the death of Janis Joplin in Oct. Because what he wrote shows us that some ideas of Janis. It says that 'There is a lady who's sure all that gillters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven.' I think that's enough to understand that the lirics shows about Janis'. I think that these hints are enough to understand where the idea of the song came from.' So forget about the rest of the lyrics of the song, okey! I mean Both songs 'Stairway To Heaven' and 'Ameican Pie' were happened to released almost the same time in the end of 1971. And this song is about the NEW WORLD ORDER and new age/shift in consciousness: rise of the anti Christ. I have a deep respect for music in general and this song in particular.
then I think that they happened to get the same idea of the writing of the lyrics of the song. So, in some sense, this song means something different to everyone.
