Lyrics

RETURNING HOME

In this life we live we are only returning home
In this life we live we are only returning home
So we break our backs and we tow the line
Adding two parts water & one part wine
In this life we live we are only returning home

In this life we live we are only pounding on stone
In this life we live we are only pounding on stone
We can hit is so hard that we break our soul
All these damn life lessons can take their toll
In this life we live we are only pounding on stone...

The more I loosen up my plans
The more I'm able to understand
This road in front of me has but one true destiny
In this life we live we are only returning home?

In this life we live we are only shaking off dust
In this life we live we are only shaking off dust
Then right back there from which we came
Until we find our spirit in a brand new case
Yea, in this life we are only shaking off dust

And the more I loosen up my plans
The more I'm able to understand
That this voice inside of me
Only wants me to believe....

Can you take my hand and together we can sure try
Can you take my hand and together we can sure try
To wipe away all this pain inside
Make this journey a smoother ride
For in this life we are only returning home
Yea, in this life we are only returning home
For in this life we are only returning home?
