John Butler Trio – Wings Are Wide lyrics

The wings are wide, so cover me
Come cover me beyond the great divide
Too long I've waited, my color has now faded
I've come to be at your side
Beyond my brain, so rescue me, please rescue me of flesh and flawed design
I want to go, so let me flow like melting snow
My shell, 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've missed so much
Oh but I always stayed true, yes, I waited 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
Face to face, I long to be in the same place
Our love letters I've 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've missed so much
Oh but I always stayed true, yes, I waited for you
But I lived alone, without you I've no home

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've missed so much
Oh but I always stayed true, yes, I waited for you
But I've been alone, now I'm coming home
