Heaven-I’ll Believe It When I See It For Myself (music)

This is another in the series of “dharma songs” I’ve been posting from time to time. These are songs that have comforted, challenged, inspired, helped, and healed me over the years. I invite you to look up the song and have a listen (the lyrics tell only part the story; the music and voices complete it.)

Heaven

by Live on the Birds of Pray album

You don’t need no friends
Get back your faith again
You have the power to believe
Another dissident
Take back your evidence
It has no power to deceive

I’ll believe it when I see it for myself

I don’t need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don’t need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I sit with them all night
Everything they say is right
But in the morning they were wrong
I’ll be right by your side
Come hell or water high
Down any road you choose to roam

I’ll believe it when I see it for myself

I don’t need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don’t need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive, yeah

Darling, I believe, Oh Lord
Sometimes it’s hard to breathe, Lord
At the bottom of the sea, yeah yeah

I’ll believe it when I see it for myself

I don’t need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don’t need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive
I don’t need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don’t need no proof when it comes to God and truth

I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I don’t need no one
I don’t need no one, oh
I don’t need no one
I don’t need no one
To tell me about heaven
I believe
I believe it, yeah
