This was playing in the car on a road trip yesterday.
It’s not my favourite version of this song as recorded by the Civil Wars. (Of which I have four)
But it’s very good.
Oh the outcast dreams of acceptance
Just to find pure love’s embrace
Like an orphan longs for its mother
May you hold me in your grace
Oh the caged bird dreams of a strong wind
That will flow beneath her wings
Like a voice longs for a melody
Oh Jesus, carry me
This is a live version from back in their early days, the audio is not perfect, but the performance is.
