Come Home

Popart Stone Walkway

Come Home

Foolish child,
When will you come home
You’ve been wandering
All these years with no goal

What are you running from
What do you seek
What can’t you find
At where you should be
When will you let everything go
Put the struggle to an end
And come home

Troubled child,
What do you want
You’ve got everything
There is no more to be bought

You went to the mountains
Traveled through the night
Went to the raging seas
In the heat of the light
Faced all the terrors
Deep in the wild
Yet despite the dangers
You have survived
So when will you let everything go
Put everything to an end
And come home

Put everything to an end
And finally come home
