Ready To Go Home

 

"On the street below these walls
Where I used to walk
Now I can barely crawl
All this darkness rising tall

Lord, shine a light for me
I'm waiting to be called

I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin

Take this river to the sea
Where the delta flows
The tide is washing over me
Guide this soul to heaven's door

Show me where tomorrow lies
I'm waiting to be born

I'm ready to lay down
I'm ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I'm ready to go home

So tired, I lay down with these memories
I breathe shallow deep inside of me
If time has run it's cause with me

I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin

Where the even shaddows fall
when the time has come
I let defences fall
to surrender to survive
I will give up everything to those I leave behind

I'm ready to go home
I'm ready to receive forgiveness for my sins
I'm ready to begin."
