Heavenly Father

Album: Wish I Was Here (2014)
  • Ever since I heard the howlin' wind
    I didn't need to go where a bible went
    But then you know your gifts seemed heaven sent
    Just lead me to a choler, dad, that's the thing

    I don't know how you house the sin
    But you're free now
    I was never sure how much of you I could let in
    And I'm free now
    Won't you settle down baby here your love has been
    Heavenly father
    It's definitely lava
    Why you don't carry other names?

    Heard about a day where it dropped the know
    To go another day as we learn to close
    'Cause I'm a known coward in a coward wind
    But you're free now
    You turn around now and you count to 10
    To see you go now
    Well I know now honey that I can't pretend
    Heavenly father
    Is whose brought to his autumn
    And love is left in end

    I just been up here for god damn years
    Can you see now?
    Filling up hulls with god damn fears
    I am free now
    I know about it darlin', I've been standin' here
    Heavenly father
    Is all that he offers
    A safety in the end Writer/s: Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon
