Song Description

Young men must find themselves on their own, regardless of the cost.

Story Behind the Song

Very simply, I was lost. My life had come apart and I felt as though I had turned my back on guidance and caring. This is a classic tale of the prodigal son asking his father for forgiveness. Of course, no forgiveness it required since no blame was ever assigned.

Lyrics

You told me I was dreaming when
I stepped across the golden line
I thought that somehow I would make it on my own
Without a need to toe the line
On My Own

Do you remember when I was just 15
A ribbon 'round my first guitar
I'd sit and play it for hours every night
Said one day Dad I'll be a star

You asked me please to never go
I let you down why I don't know
Tonight I wonder, just where I'll be today
I close my eyes and I prey

Father, I'm just your wayward son
Living on rock & roll & wine
Father, oh won't you please take me home
I'm living on borrowed time

For three long years now Danny my friend
We've rocked the streets and we've shook the walls
Wandering through the lonely nights with just our old guitars
Looking for someone to take our fall

Father, I'm just your wayward son
Living on rock & roll & wine
Father, oh won't you please take me home
I'm living on borrowed time

Now I'm struggling in another world
Just wondering why I went away
If I came tonight to find you
What would you say

Father, I'm just your wayward son
Living on rock & roll & wine
Father, oh won't you please take me home
I'm living on borrowed time
