07. PRODIGAL SOUL

NATIVE TONGUE
by Switchfoot



 

[Verse 1]
The sun comes up alone
Like a funeral for my home
Like a mirror for my soul
But I should've known better
I was feeling like skin and bones
I kept chasing after these ghosts
I kept giving up on these hopes
When I found Your letter

[Pre-Chorus]
I am Yours and Yours alone
Forgive me for my wandering on my own

[Chorus]
I'm a prodigal soul
And I want to come home
I can't make it alone
Won't You bring me home?

[Verse 2]
Tried to start on something new
Tried to blame myself on You
But my nightmares all came true
I felt so unsteady
I still see Your face when I close my eyes and
I think about You wide awake at night and
How far do I have to go to realize
What I know already

[Pre-Chorus]
I am Yours and Yours alone
Forgive me for my wandering on my own

[Chorus]
I'm a prodigal soul
And I want to come home
I can't make it alone
Won't you bring me home?

[Bridge]
I was running on empty
I was feeling so low
When You made me a promise
To never let me go
I was falling to pieces
When You carried me home
When You told me you loved me
And my prodigal soul
And I want to come home
I can't make it alone
And I want to come home
Yeah, I want to come home

[Outro]
I'm a prodigal soul
Yeah, but I'm coming home
I can't make, I can't make it alone, yeah
And I want to come home, yeah
In my dreams, all is forgiven
In my dreams, I'm by Your side
But when I wake up something's missing
Can You free me from my prodigal soul?
Yeah, won't You bring me home?
