lyrics

Are you tired? Are your legs weak?
You open your mouth, to find you’ve no strength to speak.
You’re too numb to feel anything but the cold
And it’s been so long since you had someone to hold.

Repeat in your mind all the things you said,
That you shouted in anger before you fled.
You can’t shake the guilt after all these
years
And every time you hear them, they only bring you to tears.

Where are you now my prodigal son?
You cry out loud for everything to be undone.

Why don't you turn around?
You know that there you’re not alive.
If you're lost be found;
Just come back home.

You're an alien; you're a stranger;
Or just someone who’s had enough of looking for a life of danger.
Can't you see the open arms
That will never let you come to harm?

This is your surrender - your retreat,
But you turn the corner to see a million white sheets
Hanging out the windows and lining the path
You breathe a sigh, for you’re at home at last.

Where are you now my prodigal son?
You cry out loud for everything to be undone.

Why don't you turn around?
You know that there you’re not alive.
If you're lost, be found.
If you're lost, be found.
If you're lost, be found.
Just come back home.
Just come back home.
