John Butler Trio – Wings Are Wide lyrics

The wings are wide, so cover me.
Come cover me beyond the great divide.
Too long we're waiting, the color has now faded.
I've come to be at your side.
Beyond my brain, so rescue me, please rescue me your flesh and flawed design.
I want to go, so let me float like melting snow.
And my ship, it now resigns.

Hey, how ya doing my love? Finally came up above.
Oh, I've missed your touch.
All of the children have grown, they've got kids of their own.
Oh you missed so much. Gone but you know I'll stay true.
Yes, I'm waiting for you.
But I've been alone, without you I've no home.

Days at last, the storm and seas at broken mast.
I lay my final anchor, relinquish pain and anger.
Days, two-faced. I long to be in the same place.
Our love has turned has burned.
To you I must return.

Hey, how ya doing my love? Finally came up above.
Oh, I've missed your touch.
All of the children have grown, they've got kids of their own.
Oh you missed so much. Gone but you know I'll stay true.
Yes, I'm waiting for you.
But I've been alone, without you I've no home.
