Eartha – Back lyrics

I'm going back to my first love, I'm going back to my first joy
I'm going back where I first believed, going back to my priority
'Cause I strayed away many a day, said that I would not
Done the things that I should not have done,
I've done wrong, but now I wanna come home
I'm so sorry, forgive me Lord, I know where I belong

Crying, Oh Lord, won't you restore all of my joy
'Cause I just wanna love you more
And each day I pray that you would lead my way
Grant me your mercy and grace, falling on my knees today
I just wanna find my way back to you

I'm going back, wanna go back to my first love
Back to my first love
Don't kill the fatted calf; you ain't got to roast no lamb
Don't need a fancy ring or material things,
You can bar-b-que wings in the backyard, it's alright with me
It really doesn't matter Lord, just as long as I'm right where you are
I've been gone a little to long, now I wanna come home
Oh, what a lesson I've learned
It was I who walked away; Father I sho' regret that day
It's time for me to return

I've had many dreams about the day when I'd be comin' home
Just wanna see your face; what a restoration
Don't need no group party just to help me get my praise on
Appreciate the celebration

'Cause now I'm back with my first love, back with my first joy
Back to the old landmark, back with a brand new start
I'm back with my first love, Got my head on straight;
Back with my first joy, I've been restored to where I first believed,
Back to my priority, Back
