Giving That Heaven Away

Giving That Heaven Away

Jackson Browne

From the new album "Time The Conqueror"
GIVING THAT HEAVEN AWAY
By Jackson Browne

Pretty Nova, one year over
Legal age of consent
In the flower of sweet youth our
Days of heaven were spent

Giving that heaven away
Giving that heaven away
Rock 'n' Roll, and freeing your soul, and
Giving that heaven away

I'm looking 'round for that sixties sound -
Those days are gone
And all us acid dropping, world stopping, be bopping
Freaks are just hanging on

Little Nova, did you have to show the
Whole world how to rebel?
Standing there with your long brown hair
Like a cool breeze blowing through hell

Giving that heaven away
Giving that heaven away
Back in those days we all were so crazy
Giving that heaven away

Giving that heaven away
Giving that heaven away
Ooooooowh
Giving that heaven away

Seems like the whole world's at a fire sale
But I might be wrong
With all the home shopping,
Bling bling and hip hopping
Maybe it's just going strong

But hey now Nova, we both know the
Ones who're always making it pay
Well any fool can sell a jewel
But an angel will give it away

Giving that heaven away
Giving that heaven away
Oooooooh I'm going go down singing
And giving that heaven away

Where did the day go in that Winnebago?
The two of us hot as a stove
Fools for pleasure, digging for treasure
Down in that Black Oak grove
Giving that heaven away
Giving that heaven away
Oooooooh
Giving that heaven away
