Been looking all the wrong places
To find the things you intended
Been searching all the wrong faces
For a smile that is friendly
Help me stop looking every place
And look to you to find hope
The way your smilin? on my soul
Tells me homeland is close

And so I wait
I wait
Lord please take me there
To a higher place
And all those nights I?ve spend down on my face
Lord take me there, I?ve tried my way
Lord take me there, to a higher place.

So tired of flying this banner
On the winds of good intentions
But with your hand in my hand
I?ve got a shot at redemption
Ain?t no pill ain?t no drink
To make me feel like you can
I while I write is all down
I can feel it getting closer ? homeland

While I wait
Yes I?ll wait
Said please take me there
To a higher place
And all those nights I spent down on my face
Please take me there
Tired of trying my way
Lord take me there ? to a higher place
This time I?m going to keep the faith
While you fire and refine ? I?ll still be in wait
All those nights I spent down on my face
O Lord it?s getting closer
