lyrics

I raised four walls around my family
I put a roof over their heads
Worked an hour before each sunrise
Gotta keep the children fed

But those walls came down
Now my babies can’t stop crying in the street
I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home

I chased my dreams into the city
Till people paid to shake my hand
I keep my money in a safe place
Bought another house just cause I can

Then the city fell
Now my money’s gone and I’ve got no one to hold
And no place to call home
No place to call home
I want to go home

I am the daughter of a mother
Whose husband wanted only sons
But I’ve seen pictures of some others
Who want an orphan for their own

My world is shaking with their love
But there’s so much ground to cross
Before I am home
Before I am home
I want to go home

I want to go home
We want to go home
Jesus take us home
