I Am Coming Home


Take my hand
and I will close my eyes
guide me home
and as a child
I will eagerly fantasize

It's been a long time since I've been home
and I hope I am nearly there
no matter how far you are, they say
home knows no race, no distance
home is fair

home is at the end of war
home is in the peaceful sun
home is in the mornings breeze
home is where it all began

Home is as unique as man
Beyond color and beyond dime
so Similar in different ways
beyond brick and beyond time

home is in a lover's arms
home is in between those doors
home is in a child's laughter
home is where you make it yours
