Homecoming

Well, I ain't proud of everything I ever done
But that's just the way that it goes
I'm not a slave to my terrible days
The change in my heart tells me so
I've lived like a soldier, I've lived like a priest
I been all round the world and seen paupers and kings
I can't change the whole world
But I can change me
And just maybe that can change everything

Now I'm back on my way again
Now I'm finding my faith again
Look myself in the eyes again
Stripping my skin
To change the man I became

Soon the uncharted waters of tomorrow I'll see
And courage is all that I need
My life is the canvas
Time is the wind
Charting my souls destiny
I've stood like a hero, I've sank with defeat
I've been all round the world and seen honest men bleed
I can't save the whole world
But I can save me
And just maybe that can save everything

Now I'm back on my way again
I'm invoking my will again
Now I'm down in the waves again
Scrubbing my stains
To change the man I became

Now I'm back on my way again
I'll return to my life again
Now I'll prove who I am again

I'm going home
