Homeward

from by A Hope Not Forgotten

lyrics

This destination. My motivation to find my way. As I come close, what I fear most is misery waiting at my door step, but I’ve done all I can, and if there's one thing I know, there's always someone who loves you that’s not far from home.

But where there’s love there’s also hate. How can there be joy where sadness rains? I'll push harder, I'll move farther until I’m far enough away, but in the end I'll know I’m wrong, and every second I am gone I’ll know where I belong.

I'll know where I belong.

But I’m searching for that place, an existence of complacency. These thoughts cloud my mind. Darkness overcasts my light. I’ll break this hold you have on me is what we all say.

Is what we all say.

We try so hard to escape, but instead what if we embrace this place that’s made us who we are. And some are afraid to call it home, but I have made this place my own. It’s not where we are, but who we are, and how we got there is home.

But when I watch the sunrise over that mountain top, I remember who I am, and what that place has made me. I must find my way back. Thoughts of negativity, and insecurity depart from me.

Depart from me

We try so hard to escape, but instead what if we embrace this place that’s made us who we are. And some are afraid to call it home, but I have made this place my own. It’s not where we are, but who we are, and how we got there is home.

And I know misery is not far from home, but I regret every second I am gone. My eyes are facing homeward.
