Bon Iver In Emotional Performance Of 'Heavenly Father'

Justin Vernon's collaborative alt-folk collective 'Bon Iver' is a global phenomenon. Their cryptic songwriting, soaring harmonies and euphoric sound has captured the imagination of millions. Their track 'Heavenly Father,' is a true stunner. They performed it live and a capella at the Syndey Opera House alongside British folk trio 'The Staves,' and the resulting video is nothing short of sublime.

Here are a few of the lyrics:

"Cause I'm a known coward in a coward wind
But you're free now
You turn around now and you count to 10
To see you go now
Well I know now honey that I can't pretend
Heavenly father
Is whose brought to his autumn
And love is left in end"

A powerful song, and a moving arrangement. With over a million hits, this is a must watch.
