Tye Tribbett – Prodigal Son lyrics

[Tye Lead:]
I can't believe this
I'm not suppose to living like this
Thought it was fun
Thought I could do what I want
And I thought I was grown
And could make it on my own
I thought no one really understands me
And even though I'm home
I feel so alone
I thought do what you feel like doing
No one cares anyway
Maybe then someone will notice you

[G. A. & Tye]
Now how I ended up where I am
I don't know
I never planned on being here
The devil tempted me
And I was drawn away
But I have no desire to stay, oh

Got to get out of here [Tye: I'm coming home father]
I got to get out of here [Tye: Hey! ]
I wanna be with you

I can't believe what I got myself into
Thought I had everything under control
I didn't realize the whole time
That the enemy had plans to destroy my life
Father please wont you have mercy on me
Please forgive me and restore your joy
I can't imagine staying here till I die
I gotta get back to your side
&Now I realize

[G. A.]
The devil tempted me
And I was drawn away [Tye: I was drawn away]
But I have no desire to stay, oh

Got to get out of here [Tye: Yea]
I got to get out of here [Tye: I wanna be wit chu]
I wanna be with you [x5]

[Tye: in thee mist of the chorus:]
Father I know I messed up
But I'm asking you to please take me back
Whoo, I'll repent father
Yea!, I'm coming home
I wanna be with you Jesus
Anybody wanna be with the lord?
Yea!, here we go say "I!"
Hey!, Yea!
Please take me back [x3]
I'm sick of the storm, "I"
I'm sick of my old ways
I wanna be with chu
Take me back Lord
I'm ready for change
Yea!, I got to get out
Hey, anybody going back tot he fathers house with me?
Come on and go with me [x3]
Let's Go!
He'll take us back I know
He's faithful Ya'll come on!
Anybody wanna go back to the fathers house?
You kno you left his presence
And now things aint working in your favor... [Fade out]

    Lost in the world: of sin, ignorantly or by just wanting to explore and have fun, with ungodly and selfish interests. Finally, trapped in the snares of the dangers therein the world's fun-seeking. Then, remembering the ever-caring father we left behind; in sincere remorse, we decide to go back to him. He'll celebrate our return- not as servants, but children. Never to return to our old habits- as long as we're under his shed, viz: care, protection, guidance. Etc. Alleluia!
