  1. That’s moving, to say the least. And the song is almost as beautiful. The line, “Will we burn in Heaven like we do down here?” strangely reminds me of a quote I once heard: “Religion is for those who are afraid of going to Hell; spirituality is for those who have already been there.”

    1. Thank you, Scott, for your encouragement. That song has always moved me… the lyrics reflect the truth in that quote you mention (so very true, by the way). I also like the part where she sings: “And when we’re done soul-searching, and carry the weight and die for a cause, is misery made beautiful right before our eyes. Will mercy be revealed or blind us where we stand?”
