Long Time Coming Lyrics

Will somebody please tell me
How did I end up in this crazy place
There must be something wrong with this mirror
'Cause I don't recognize my own face
Well I guess I'm just a modern day prodigal son
But You're looking at me like I'm a chosen one
With Your arms open wide, now I've lost all my pride
And I'm yours, I'm yours

It's been a long time coming
Been a twelve round fight
Been a thousand nights of darkness
But I finally see the light
Seems my never ending search is coming to an end
It's been a long time coming
I'm coming home, home

Lord, now that You've pulled back the curtains
I can see You everywhere
And I wanna empty out all my pockets
Till there's only one thing that's there
'Cause I can't have nothing holding me down
When I'm on my way to You
You're my life, You're my love
And You're all I know that's true

Well now everybody says that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
Well now it's gone and I know
And I want it back, so here I go, here I go, here I go, go, go


I've always related to the parable of the Prodigal Son, the bright lights of the city, greener grass, feeling trapped in normal and in general, putting myself first. I hope I can do for my children what the father in the story did for his wayward son. Obviously he had created home where the fires burned warm and brighter than those his son found on his quest. Time after time, my rebellion has ended in a repentant journey home.
