09. She Walked Away

BarlowGirl
by BarlowGirl



 

She couldn’t take one more day
Home was more her prison now
Independence called out
She had to get it

A fight was all she needed
To give her reason
She slammed the door with no goodbye
And knew that it was time

Now she’s driving too fast
She didn’t care to glance behind
And through her tears she laughed
It’s time to kiss the past goodbye

I’m finally on my own
Don’t try to tell me no
There’s so much more for me
Just watch what I will be

She walked away
Couldn’t say why she was leaving
She walked away
She left all she had believed in
She walked away

Not a day goes by
For the ones she’s left behind
They’re always asking why
And thoughts of her consume their mind

God please let her know
The love we tried to show
We’d promise anything
If you’d just bring her home

Tell her we love her
Tell her she’s wanted
One more thing God
Tell her please come home
Please come home

The choice is yours alone now
Tell me how this story ends

Behind the Song:
'This song was written for a friend of ours--actually, it was more for our friend’s parents whose child had run away. It was amazing to see the parents’ response to something like this. Because sometimes you just hear that the child couldn’t take it, so they left. But you never really see the parents’ side—their faces, praying to God, “Lord, I love my child. Let them come home.” And God showed us that this is how He is with His children and has that same desperation in His heart. The prodigal son story describes that desperation. Our biggest cry in this song is to reach out to those that haven’t talked to God in a while, who may feel distant from Him and don’t know if He’ll take them back.' - Alyssa Barlow (BarlowGirl)
