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 couldnt tell

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

Where do you go
When you go prodigal
Come home

I see you keep moving
But the concretes 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 couldnt tell

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. Its 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 its an important thing to ask ourselves.' - Phil Joel
