lyrics

It's time now to go,
Away from my family.
Because there's no room to grow
In these walls that surround me.
So I pack all my clothes
And ask for your charity
Let me leave you alone
I just need some clarity.

So it's time to hit the town
And find my identity
But as the people crowd around
I just find immunity
So I search out a crown
Let it lift me to royalty
But the gold weighs me down
And the crown it just bruises me.

So I seek out some help,
But the world just refuses me.
It tells me that success,
Is the way to the truth I seek
So I continue on my path,
But it just builds resent in me.
And I wonder if this town,
Is getting the best of me.

So I try to settle down
And find some consistency
But as she lays her life down,
I get scared of normality.
So I break off our pact
And the girl walks away from me
And the dreams I once had
Have just turned to apathy.

And I can't find my home,
In the lights and the fantasy.
I longed for a throne,
But it seems it just fell on me.
And people I had known
Have just turned their backs on me.
I'm lost and all alone,
And I think of my family.

Would my dad take me back?
Would he remember me?
If I saw him again,
I don't think he would take to me.
Because I've spent all my cash,
And I've sold my integrity.
But if I just asked for help,
Maybe he'd pity me.

I could stay for a couple weeks,
And look for a job to keep.
And then I'd get out of his hair,
And he could be done with me.
So I turn to head on back
With my shame all around me.
And rehearse the things I'll say,
When my dad finally sees me.

But as I reach the end of our drive,
The weirdest thing occurs to me.
That the very thing I seek,
Was found at the end of me.
And as I look down to the ground,
I sense I have company.
And these arms are thrown around,
Squeezing my body.

I look up and see the man,
Who I thought would despise me,
But he's crying out with joy
And he's holding me tightly.
He takes my bag and smiles,
And leans in to talk to me.
He says. 'Welcome home my son
I love you eternally.'
