Prodigal Son: One Man's Journey
Lyrics


Why Am I Here? (part 1)

Why am I here? And what is the reason for living?
Why am I here? This life seems so unforgiving.
Can anybody tell me? Is there any way for me to know
Why I feel so incomplete, why I feel so all alone?

Not so long ago, but so far away.
I was just a boy, but I was feeling twice my age.
Caught up in a world of compromise,
It was hard to sift between the truth and all the lies.

I thought maybe I could change the world.
With a dream in my heart I could take away the hurt.
But a twist of fate it drove me to hide.
In the only place I knew, and that was deep down inside.

Can anybody tell me? Can anybody tell me?
Donít tell me tomorrow, tell me today.
Donít tell me tomorrow, it may be too late.
Can anybody out there show me the way?



On My Own

On my own, feels good to be on my own.
No one to tell me where to go.
Now that Iím on my own

Free to run, now I am free to run
Wherever I choose to run.
On my own.

Lost and alone, now I am lost and alone
Just look at how far Iíve roamed
Now that Iím on my own

Where is the peace they told me about
And where is the God who delivers me out of my pain
Open my eyes that I might see, that Youíre really there
That Youíre really thereÖ
On my own


Your Life Is Like An Island (part one)

Your life is like an island, where youíre trapped on every side
You feel as if the whole worldís turned on you
And everyone is telling you to make up your own mind
But everyone condemns the things you do

So you take off for New York to find that somethingís still not right
You still hear all the voices in the middle of the night
Yet thereís one small voice inside of you whoís dieing to be heard
And someday you will have to listen to His every wordÖ




Let Me Tell You A Story


Let me tell you a story about a man named Jesus
He was born of a virgin, for He was Godís own Son
He quickly grew in wisdom and confounded all the elders
And all who knew Him marveled at this man from Galilee

Well He told them of His Fatherís plan, but they did not understand
For only by Godís Spirit can we know the things of God.
Still He healed the sick and raised the dead
And showed His love for them
But they didnít know Heíd give His life so that we might live again.

If you hear My words and believe in Him who sent me
You can live with me eternally
If I call to you, you will surely hear me
For I am the shepherd and my sheep know me.

Just open your heart to me




Your Life Is Like An Island (part two)


Youíve moved out of the city now, but nothingís really changed
Your thoughts have just been merely re-arranged
Soon the voices will start filling up your head once more
You take off in your car and lock the door


Now youíre on the road again and you can see no end in sight
You still hear all the voices in the middle of the night
Still thereís one small voice inside of you whoís dieing to be heard
And one day you will have to listen to His every wordÖ



Prove Me Wrong

Every dayís a new day and today it ainít so bad
Iím starting to forget about the awful pain I had
I think I can put it all together and get myself on track
Every dayís a new day and today it ainít so bad

I know that thereís a God above
They tell me Heís a God of love
How could He love and let me live?
Explain the pain and death He gives

Prove me wrong He canít be real
If Heís love why donít I feel it?
Iím so lost how could He make me
An empty shell and then forget me?

Prove me wrongÖ

Prove me wrong I want to believe it
If Heís love why donít I feel His hand reach out to me?
Where are the arms I long to hold me?

Prove me wrong Ďcause Iím still hiding
Running in circles, Iím so frightened
I look in the mirror and see Iím dieing


Prove me wrongÖ



New Way Out

This one makes me feel good. This one makes me alright.
This one makes me feel light. With this one I stay up all night.

And it feels so good. And I want to get higher.
Yeah it feels so good, but I canít let go, no I canít let go.

Wasting my time. Taking my time. Trying a new way out.
Wasting my time. Iím standing in line. Trying a new way out.

There ainít no use denying Iím wasting my time.
Trying a new way out.
There ainít no use crying, I know that Iím dieing.
Trying a new way out.

And it feels so good. And I want to get higher.
Yeah it feels so good, but I canít let go, no I canít let go.

Wasting my time. Taking my time. Trying a new way out.
Wasting my time. Iím standing in line. Trying a new way out.
There ainít no use denying Iím wasting my time.
Trying a new way out.
There ainít no use crying, I know that Iím dieing.
Iím trying a new way out.

Trying a new way, trying a new way out.
New way outÖ new way outÖ new way outÖ new way outÖ




Why Am I Here? (part 2)

With no where to turn, I stumble along
Trying each road as it comes along
Someone said thereís a narrow path, I think you should take it
Well I tried for a while, but I didnít think I could make it

An easier road I thought Iíd find
Now I feel Iím running out of time
That feeling insideís getting harder to hide
And the ache in my soul is a definite sign

So tell me again, Ďcause I canít remember the way.
Please tell me again, Ďcause I canít remember that Name.
Donít tell me tomorrow, tell me today
Donít tell me tomorrow, it may be too late
Can anybody out there show me the way?



Listen With Your Heart


I feel like Iím not getting anywhere. I wonder why I sit and stare.
Thinking of those far away lands. Restless ocean and the burning sand.
Thinking of the here and now.
The skies grow dark with the thunderclouds.
Wishing it would rain somehow. To wash away the lonely hours.

Still I know if I call on You. Youíll be there to pull me through
But sometimes I donít feel worthy of
The life Youíve given or Your love

Listen with your heart to the words Iím saying
Iím not trying to tell you what to do
Listen with your heart to the God of heaven
And He will grant it unto you

Listen with your heart if itís peace youíre after
Go into your room and pray alone
Listen with your heart you will hear Him answer
Even if youíre far away from home
Listen with your heartÖ

One of these days Youíre going to bring me home.
Out of this place and Iíll never be alone.
One of these days I will say good-bye.
To the emptiness and the pain inside.

Still feeling like a stranger in my hometown.
Feels like the whole worldís upside down.
I keep on moving but time stands still. When will this turn around?



How Could You Do This To Me?

You brought me here and left me all alone
Youíve taken away everything I own
My friends, my family, and now my home
How could You do this to me?

I tried my best to be faithful and true
You know Iíve never given up on You
Is there something missing? Something I cannot see?
How could You do this to me?

After all Iíve done, after how after how Iíve cried
After all my pain and sacrifice
If You want my life, just take it now
Cause it doesnít matter anyhow

How could You do this to me?



Take This Heart

Where were you when I hung the stars from the sky?
Where were you when I calmed the sea?
Where were you when I formed a man from the dust?
Where were you when I made a blind man see?

Remember, You made me from clay.
Will those same hands crush me today! ?
Like rivers and lakes that run dry,
Surely I donít want to die!

Take this heart of mine
For I have seen You with my own eyes.
Take this heart of mine.
Please remove these doubts from my mind.

Though He slay me Iíll trust in Him.
I know He can do anything.
Iím so sorry for my sin
Now I know Iíll trust in Him. Iíll trust in Him.



True Confession

Bless me Father for I have sinned
Iíve been living on the outside looking in

Hiding away in the dark of night
Iíve been living in sin but it feels alright

Telling myself that it ainít too bad
But whatís slipping away is the truth I have

My dreaming takes away the sting
Of the tears that fall from the pain life brings


Bless me Father for I have sinned
Itís been months since Iíve done anything

Iím living my life like Youíre not there
I see the lost world but I donít care

Father I want to live again
I want to live for You I want to be Your friend

Please Father say this battleís won
And on this earth Your will be done



Welcome Home

What will He say when He sees my face?
I hope Heíll let me in the door
Iím standing here, Iím naked inside
Wondering what I am waiting for

Well Iím tired of dreaming
And my heart it aches for Your touch
And itís not just a feeling, I need Your love

I feel so ashamed when I think of the way
Iíve squandered the treasures Youíve given to me
And Iíve tried every way to hide from the truth
That all You really wanted was me

See my hands how they tremble as I reach up to open the door
Will You even remember me anymore?

Welcome home, welcome home
Iíve been waiting for You welcome home
You look tired and weary and itís cold outside
Come and sit by me weíll get warm by the fire
I know youíve been wandering and I know how youíve cried
But thereís a place at my table for you here tonight

Welcome home, welcome home
Weíve been waiting for you welcome home

But Lord Iíve sinned against You, see the scars cover me
I donít deserve to be in Your family
Well you were lost for a while but returned to the light
And thereís a place at my table for you here tonight
Welcome home



Why Am I Here (part 3)

Now I know why Iím here and I know my reason for living
I know itís not to blame or criticize
Iím only here so that Your name be glorified

I hear Your voice in the wind, saying, ďCome follow me.Ē
The time is near the end. Are you too blind to see?

Donít wait Ďtill tomorrow, Heís calling today
Donít wait Ďtill tomorrow, it may be too late

Come if you are thirstyÖ
