from Esperanza by Burnt



lord i'm gonna come back someday
but today i stand alone
lord i'm gonna come back some way
but now i'm on my own
troubled soul
lost and gone
call it the come-down you're on
get control
a hard row to hoe
take the long road and come back home.

addicted to the fade-away
slippin' farther everyday
runnin' from reality
looking for the lunch that's free
check the menu
cold blood inna shallow dish
yea i'm gonna fix it quick
and do whatever for instant pleasure
fools treasure
heartache pressure
i can't take it no more
i'm tired of wanting
i'm weary of wishes
wanna get back my gills
and go swim with the fishes
true love in my life
is no place to hide behind
true love in my life is no place
is no place
i'm losing grace
i've gone astray
jah jah can you hear me?
on my knees i pray.

prodigal sons and daughters
are we all
taking the chance of a lifetime
with each step that falls
and even the wisest must
right their wrongs
you reap what you sow
when the harvest comes to you
i'm comming back home yes i'm comming back home
to redemption
i'm comming back home yes i'm comming back home
to love and acceptace
and yes i know i will have to live to fight another day
but that's just part of the battle i say.
