07. Drainpipe

the deliberatePeople. album
by Phil Joel



 

I watched you climbing
From the window of your house
Down the drainpipe to the lawn
The rain was falling hard
Upon your face you turned
You were crying but I couldn’t tell

Safety was no longer
Within the confines
Of your walls
Maybe it would be better to run away

Prodigal
Where do you go
When you go prodigal
Come home

I see you keep moving
But the concrete’s setting
Hard around your heart
We both smile and say “hey”
So near and yet so far away

And so we talk awhile
N’ while we talk you drift away
Standing there
You were crying but I couldn’t tell

Prodigal
Where do you go
When you go prodigal
Come home
Come home now


Music & lyrics by Phil Joel, Heather Joel

Behind the Song:
'Heather and I wrote this song a long time ago, but it never got finished. It’s a simple song with a message that can be as simple or as complicated as you want. The song asks the question “where do you go when you go prodigal?” I think it’s an important thing to ask ourselves.' - Phil Joel
