Freedom Hangs Like Heaven by Iron & Wine

Culture Shock LogoThis song talks about freedom being available to everyone, just as is Heaven. It's easy to write off going to Heaven because of whatever reason, maybe it's that you think you don't deserve it? Well the truth is that non of us deserve the privilege of Heaven, but God will always be there to offer us entrance. It's a choice of faith and a choice to leave your sin in the past.

Lyrics

Discuss this song

Mary, carry your babe
Bound up tight like lips around a whimper
Your fingers over my face
Blind eyed Samson driven to the temple
And night birds digging 'til dawn
Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone
Ain't nobody knows what a newborn holds
But his mama says he'll walk on water
and wander back home
Wander back home

Mary, carry your shame
Well past all those eyes across the avenue
Fish heads running from rain
You know I'll do anything you want me to
Lamp oil lovers may say
"Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone"
Ain't nobody knows what a newborn holds
But his papa's going to hide shaking gristle
And shaking like bone
Shaking like bone

Mary, carry my name
Hoof marks hacked up all I had to offer you
Looked all over this place
Lost your portrait lately when the winter blew
In like Herod and them
Freedom hangs like heaven over everyone
Ain't nobody knows what a newborn holds
But a dollar says he'll lick that devil
And do it alone
Do it alone
