Long Way Home

I set out on a great adventure
The day my Father started leading me home
He said there's gonna be some mountains to climb
And some valleys we're gonna go through

But I had no way of knowing
Just how hard this journey could be
'Cause the valleys are deeper
And the mountains are steeper
Than I ever would have dreamed

But I know we're gonna make it
And I know we're gonna get there soon
And I know sometimes it feels like we're going the wrong way
It's just a long way home

I got some rocks in my shoes
Fears I wish I could lose
That make the mountains so hard to climb
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometimes

There's a bag of regrets,
My should've beens and not yets
I keep on dragging around
And I can hardly wait for the day I get to lay them all down

I know that day is coming
I know it's gonna be here soon
And I won't turn back
Even if the whole world says I'm going the wrong way
'Cause it's just a long way home

When we can't take another step
Our Father will pick us up and carry us in His arms
And even on the best days,
He says to remember we're not home yet
So don't get too comfortable
'Cause really all we are is just pilgrims passing through

Well, I know we're gonna make it
And I know we're gonna get there soon
So I'll keep on singing and believing
What all of my songs say

'Cause our God has made a promise
And I know that everything He says is true
And I know wherever we go
He will never leave us
'Cause He's gonna lead us home
Every single step of the long way home

Keep on, we're gonna make it
I know we're gonna make it
We're just taking the long way home
[x3]

Keep on, we're gonna make it
I know we're gonna make it
It's just a long way home
