Living on my own, thinking for myself
Castles in the sand, temporary wealth
Walls are falling down, storms are closing in
Tears have filled my eyes, here I am again

And I've held out as long as I can
Now I'm letting go and holding out my hand

Daddy, here I am again
Will You take me back tonight
I went and made the world my friend
And it left me high and dry

I drag Your name back through the mud
That You first found me in
Not worthy to be called Your son
Is this to be my end

Daddy, here I am
Here I am again

Curse this morning sun
Drags me in to one more day
Of reaping what I've sown
Of living with my shame
Welcome to my world
And the life that I have made
Where one day you're a prince
The next day you're a slave

And I've held out as long as I can
Now I'm letting go and holding out my hand

Daddy, here I am again
Will You take me back tonight
I went and made the world my friend
And it left me high and dry

I drag Your name back through the mud
That You first found me in
Not worthy to be called Your son
Is this to be my end

Daddy, here I am
Here I am again

And I've held out as long as I can
Now I'm letting go and holding out my hand

Daddy, here I am again
Will You take me back tonight
I went and made the world my friend
And it left me high and dry

I drag Your name back through the mud
That You first found me in
Not worthy to be called Your son
Is this to be my end

Daddy, here I am
Here I am again

    Sit at the Master's feet and be content.

    By the way, the answer to the question is: Yes, Father God will take us back even if our earthly father may not. Go to Him and He will run to meet you.
