Distant faces linger In the fleeting shadows gaze A single slightly finger Points for them the way, Wheels of judgment tumble Past this window pain And I’m waiting for you to come safely home. A stubborn sense of reason Brandishes the day, My eyes like out of season Life put me to shame, I’m lost alone I’m beaten My words pressed into clay, Here’s hoping you make it safely home. The broken world around me Stands only up for shame, Buildings lay in peaces Hiding from your Name, The superficial servants Crumble where you came, So here’s hoping you make it safely home. The seat is cold and vacant Palm trees hanging low, The birds for you are silent The sun doesn’t want to go, The blind are all preparing - In faith they seem to know That you’ll soon be coming safely home. And so I lay here watching Through this window pain, The sky in glory burning With the echo of your name And I see all the good things That you’ve done and that you’ll do And so I know you’ll be coming safely home.
