Randy Stonehill Album: Stories Track: Coming Back Soon
Coming Back Soon Lyrics
Morning steals the night The sun breaks through the rain A little girl is sleeping While I pack to meet my plane Then I kneel down by her bed And I kiss her sleepy head She hugs me tight She knows I'm going away
CHORUS: She says "tell me you're coming back soon Now don't forget me I want to be with you If you'll tell me you're coming back soon Then while you're gone The days won't seem so long"
I watch my little girl And start to understand How God looks down from heaven And we're children in His eyes Even though we're far apart He left behind His heart Like a promise to return for us someday
CHORUS: I know sometimes she feels so lost without me The world is such a big confusing place And it's then I pray she'll do the things I taught her Remember right from wrong Remember daddy's face
I know I'm going home And hunger for that day Just like the Lord is waiting And He longs to hear us say
