Songs For Our Times #2

After Seeing Hate and Oppression, Mickey Guyton Wrote This Song | CMT

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

I chose Heaven Down Here by Mickey Guyton for our second song. We sure could use some love down here in our world that is coming apart.

I have been listening to this singer for several years. I am glad she is starting to hit the mainstream. Her two singles before this one, What Are You Going To Tell Her and Black Like Me are also really good songs.

lyrics:

Hey God, it’s me
I hate to be a bother
But I could use a minute or two
Yeah, I’m just so
Heartbroken, disappointed
In the way this world is coming unglued

And I can’t help but wonder are you

If you got a little love
Left in your back pocket
Rain it down like pennies
In this wishing well of tears
I know that you’re busy
But if you could hear me talking
We could use a little more heaven down here
We could use a little more heaven down here

We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven
We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven

Hey God, I know
I don’t hit you up that often
But the world is turning upside down
I swear it feels
Like all we’ve got is problems
And there’s so many, I’m losing count

If you got a little love
Left in your back pocket
Rain it down like pennies in this
Wishing well of tears
I know that you’re busy
But If you could hear me talking
We could use a little more heaven down here
We could use a little more heaven down here

We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven
We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven

Hey God, it’s me
We’re really going though it
And I can’t help but wonder are you

If you got a little love
Left in your back pocket
Rain it down like pennies
In this wishing well of tears
I know that you’re busy but
If you could hear me talking
We could use a little more heaven down here
We could use a little more heaven down here

We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven
We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven
We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven
We could use
We could use
We could use a little more heaven
