I love this song by Jason Upton…

The whole album is incredible. I’ve been listening to it a lot lately.

“Scarecrow” by Jason Upton

There’s a scarecrow
standing in a farmer’s field
What he’s guarding has not been revealed
‘Cause you can’t find something
that’s been found before
And I won’t find nothin’ if I close that door

If I were a bird
If I were a foolish bird
I’d listen to my fear
And fly away from here

But if I were a bird
If I were a wise bird
I’d listen to my heart
And find the treasure waiting in a field, waiting in a field, is waiting in a field

There’s a scarecrow living in my memory
It just hangs around and stares at me
With eyes that look but cannot see
There’s a scarecrow living in my memory

If I were a bird
If I were a foolish bird
I’d listen to my fear
And fly away from here

But if I were a bird
If I were a wise bird
I’d listen to my heart
And find the treasure waiting in a field, waiting in a field, is waiting in a field

Everybody leaves the garden
Everybody needs a home

Everybody’s scared of dying
But no one wants to roll away the stone

Go on and roll away the stone

There’s a scarecrow
wherever a church bell rings
Terrified by the gift she brings
We can’t change nothing without suffering
Even scarecrows need to hear the songs we sing

Let the fear be gone
You’re a child of God

Let the fear be gone
I’m a child of God
