lyrics

i’ve been places plenty times,
i’ve travelled all around but,
in all the wheres i’ve yet to
find a place to settle down.
so i’m hoping that it’s there,
as i get to the next town
because, really, i am feeling
pretty weary now.

don’t we all want
somewhere to come home to;
to hang our hats and coats too,
like any other kid?

i’ve seen a lot of houses, slept
on couches, floors and beds
so i know i’m after more than
just a place to lay my head.
i’m hoping that it’s there
waiting just around the bend,
it’d be nice to meet the neighbours
before i am dead.

don’t we all want
somewhere to come home to;
to hang our hats and coats too,
like any other kid?
in the childishness of chases, i
took for granted bases
seeing nothing of their value as i hid.
i may be getting older, but
i still want somewhere to fit.

i’ve got a suitcase for my clothing
and a heart i keep for friends
but both are getting full so
let’s just hope the seams can bend!
at least until i’m there, when
all this wandering’s at an end
and just read it in the postcards
someone else has sent.

don’t we all want
somewhere to come home to;
to hang our hats and coats too,
like any other kid?
in the childishness of chases, i
took for granted bases
seeing nothing of their value as i hid.
i may be getting older, but
i still want somewhere to fit.

about

pilgrims, we Seattle, Washington

each of us is prone to wander while we are here abroad. and
whatever which way we wonder (be it all for gain or blunder),
still holes in hearts point, pining after all we can’t quite know.
onwards! upwards! ever fonder we grow! never dimmer
but refining all our brilliance, chasing that Light.

and so we sing. songs for hope; for joy.
for all of us our wayward, journeying on.
going home.
