Heaven Knows No Frontiers

Wednesday, 4 September 2013

I have always expressed that I’m one of The Corrs fans, an Irish family band consists of 3 sisters and one brother. As far as I remember, there is almost no song of this band that I don’t like. You know, I have this favorite youtube video which I can play over and over again.. And it’s The Corrs unplugged video. In this mini concert, one of the songs from this concert stole my attention. It’s No Frontiers, an old song originally sung by Jimmy McCarthy and also Mary Black. Why? Because The Corrs’ lead vocal is Andrea, but somehow No Frontiers sung by the violinist and drummer, Sharon and Caroline.

If  life is a river and your heart is a boat
And just like a water baby, baby born to float
And if life is a wild wind that blows way on high
And your heart is Amelia dying to fly
Heaven knows no frontiers and I’ve seen heaven in your eyes

And if life is a bar room in which we must wait
‘Round the man with his fingers on the ivory gates
Where we sing until dawn of our fears and our fates
And we stack all the dead men in self addressed crates

In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark
That somehow this black night
Feels warmer for the spark
Warmer for the spark
To hold us ’til the day
When fear will lose its grip
And heaven has its ways

Heaven knows no frontiers
And I’ve seen heaven in your eyes

If your life is a rough bed of brambles and nails
And your spirit’s a slave to man’s whips and man’s jails

Where you thirst and you hunger for justice and right
And your heart is a pure flame of man’s constant night

In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark
That somehow this black night
Feels warmer for the spark
Warmer for the spark
To hold us ’til the day when fear will lose its grip
And heaven has its ways
And heaven has its ways
When all will harmonise
And you know what’s in our hearts
The dream will realise

Heaven knows no frontiers
And I’ve seen heaven in your eyes
Heaven knows no frontiers
And I’ve seen heaven in your eyes

As the song floated in the air.. I can felt my eyes were teary. People said, you don’t have to know the meaning of the song to be touched.. I believe in that. But as a person who is always curious about the meaning behind a song, I googled it. I found that the meaning is: Life is intrinsic with fear. When you lose the feeling, you die. Heaven has no boundary once you die. The person they sing of is warm and full of excitement, and gives us a feeling that anything is possible. Yes, heaven knows no frontiers. Somehow I have found my heaven in his eyes. And you can find bliss in those eyes. But if it’s only my heaven, am I selfish? Can I consider it as OUR bliss? Well, I guess only heaven knows..
