Willie Nelson's "Heaven Is Closed" video shows a glimpse inside the studio during the making of his most recent album, 'Last Man Standing.'

Country music legend Willie Nelson gives audiences a glimpse into the recording studio in his new music video for “Heaven Is Closed.” The song comes from his studio album titled Last Man Standing and discusses the tough topics of aging and loss. Nelson also provides us with the wisdom that he has accumulated throughout his career and his 85 years on this earth.

The lyrics also supply listeners with Nelson’s classic humor and stubbornness. It was written alongside Buddy Cannon and the Texas native finds peace as “Heaven Is Closed” questions an eternity in heaven and hell. Instead of coming to a conclusion about where our souls end up, Nelson offers the idea that the two destinations are similar.

He sings, “Could it be that hell is heaven and heaven is hell and each one are both the same thing?”

“Heaven Is Closed” Lyrics

Heaven is closed
And hell’s overcrowded
So I think I’ll stay where I am
So many people and it sure is lonely
But who even gives a damn
I hear someone callin’ ‘Come in from the craziness’
But there ain’t nobody around
Heaven is closed and hell’s overcrowded
So I think I’ll just stay where I am

Heaven left for California
On a midnight plane
Hell stayed behind so I wouldn’t be lonely
For reasons that’s hard to explain
Could it be that hell is heaven and heaven is hell
And each one are both the same thing
Well I hope heaven finds what she’s looking for
And that hell treats us both the same

Heaven is closed
And hell’s overcrowded
So I think I’ll stay where I am
So many people and it sure is lonely
But who even gives a damn
I hear someone callin’ ‘Come in from the craziness’
But there ain’t nobody around
Heaven is closed and hell’s overcrowded
So I think I’ll just stay where I am

Let’s burn one for those still living in hell
Let’s burn for those who think they’re in heaven
Burn one for everyone in the whole world
And anyone stuck in between
