Now I’m comin’ home to be welcomed in with open arms, and rest my worried mind in the solace you provide.
Memories on the walls, as I wander through familiar halls. There’s no need to speak when you see right through me.
I’ll drive right through the night and when I’m hit by the morning light, Everything comes into view, all the roads lead back to you.
So I look to the rising sun and head back where I come from.
Full of fear and grief, you showed me my release. Lead me to the stream, and as it washes over me I am lost in dreams.
Drowning in the disbelief of anything that can’t be seen. Look beyond the world you know to the magic and miracles.
But I’ve looked upon those ancient scripts and they all just seem to break and bend, when you pull them thread by thread.
So I let the river pull me on and found everything I need in love.
And as the water starts to rise, I can fall back and close my eyes. ‘Cause now that I’ve opened up, I’m waiting on the flood.
Full of fear and grief, you showed me my release.
Lead me to the stream, and as it washes over me I am lost in dreams.
