"Heart Like Mine"

I ain't the kind you take home to mama
I ain't the kind to wear no ring
Somehow I always get stronger
When I'm on my second drink

Even though I hate to admit it
Sometimes I smoke cigarettes
The Christian folks say I should quit it
And I just smile and say "god bless"

Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
And I bet we'd get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet he'd understand a heart like mine

Daddy cried when he saw my tattoo
But said he loved me anyway
My brother got the brains of the family
So I thought I'd learn to sing

Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
And I bet we'd get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet he'd understand a heart like mine

And I'll fly away from it all one day
And I'll fly, I'll fly away
But these are the days that I will remember
When my names called on a roll
He'll meet me with two long stem glasses
And make a toast to me coming home

Cause I heard Jesus he drank wine
And I bet we'd get along just fine
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
And I bet he'd understand
Understand a heart like mine
Oh yes he would

  • Not much from a Christian point of view but I do think EVERYONE can learn that even a Christian isn't perfect. We make mistakes and tons of them.

    I guarantee if you measure my moral actions against Jesus I would be very low on the meter. I can only pick up and try again a minute later.

    Sometimes what I don't see as a sin someone else might. What I see as a sin someone else might not think it is a sin. I can only live what I see fit for me.

  • I'm not Christian, so I might not be the one to ask, but to me it sounds like you don't have to be perfect to be accepted by god.

  • Mixed feelings.

    I do think Jesus understands all of our hearts and is more empathetic than any Christian can be.

    At the same time, that's no reason to give up trying to improve ourselves...when we're all comfy and thinking we're good and saved, and don't need to work any harder, is exactly when pride and other vices can creep in.

  • I think it's a good song. Jesus knows our hearts,, and he also knows our faults. It sounds to me that he doesn't think much of himself, but Jesus knows the real him.

  • I think the concept of the song is fine. God comes to us where we are, not where He would like us to be. We don't have to clean up our lives to go to him. But I have a problem with the concept of using God's grace to justify our sins. This person seems to have the attitude of "I'm right, the rest of you are wrong, and I don't care." In Romans 6, I believe it speaks about not using grace as an excuse to sin.
    As far as Jesus using wine, the culture was vastly different, wine was much more a part of their culture than it is ours. It would be comparable to coffee or even soda in today's culture. There was not as much of an issue of alcoholism and alcohol abuse as there is now. While I believe it is perfectly acceptable for Christians to enjoy wine and other alcohol, my concern is for those who allow alcohol to control or influence them. Too many people use alcohol to self medicate.

  • I agree anon! I happen to really like this song and to me, I don't think Miranda is trying to get out of improving herself...I think her point is DON'T JUDGE ME, that's between me and Jesus.
