lyrics

I have been waiting
For love to come home.
I've been to purgatory's throne.
I have been shrouded
By patience and apathy.
Been afraid to fall in love.

For life's been uncertain
And solitude's mine to learn.
For, trust ain't a friend,
A stranger at best.
For this I will confess,
That, I've been risking,
Taking everything on the line.
God knows I've tried, paid my dues and then some.
Did I take more than I can bear?

There is a place that my heart longs to be.
Somewhere far away from here.
Maybe that's where I will find no fear,
Where people are kind in their years.

For I've been stubborn.
Never heeded the words of my youth.
I've always believed in the goodness of truth.
For, I'm broken and lost like you
And when I'm gone.
Would you save a place for me?
Speak kindly of me,
Tell these stories for me,
Of a life forgiven and free.
