Give Them Heaven

from by Ian Peacock & Friends

about

A song about not giving people what they deserve, going the extra mile, turning the other cheek and letting the beauty inside you be displayed so that you may win people over. Don't give them hell, give them heaven.

lyrics

When they put a gun in your hand,
tell them you understand
When they tell you to fight for the cause,
tell them love is your weapon of war
May the goodness you've received
reflect in the life that you lead

When you're tempted to run with the crowd
and your conscience is screaming out loud
When they curse you and spit in your face,
time to show them the meaning of grace

Give them Heaven, don't give them hell,
give them heaven.

When they ask you to walk for a while,
keep on going the extra mile
When they take what they didn't work for,
go ahead and give them some more
May your beauty and your peace
leave a trail in the dust from your feet'
