lyrics

Far from home

The first faces that I saw
Before memory could even recall
Stay with me until my end
Wherever this road leads, it winds and bends

It took a time,
Took a while,
To feel the weight of all those miles.
Now I feel it
See distant fires aglow
Far from home

Given all I’d need to grow
Until I’d race from that nest alone
Fled that tucked away terrain
Made it nearly half the world away

It took a time
It took a while
To feel the strain of all those miles
Now I feel it
See distant fires aglow
Far from home
