Brian McKnight – Home lyrics

Thinking back when we first met
I remember what you said
You said you'd never leave me, yeah
I let go a while of you hand
Built my castle in the sand
But now I'm reaching out again
And I'm not letting you go till you

Hold me, mold me
Sometimes I feel so all alone, hmm
See I gotta find my way back home
So why don't you
Shape me, make me, wash me whiter than the snow
I gotta find my way back home

Master upon my knees I pray
I just wanna be the clay
Hmm put your arms around me, yeah
Place my life in your hands
Lord I know I'm just a man
Know you understand
This time I'm not letting go, till you

Anoint me, appoint me
Sometimes I feel so all alone, oh
See I gotta find my way back home
So why don't you
Chastise me, baptize me
Wash me whiter than the snow
I gotta find my way

Cause I'm lost and alone
I've been wandering long enough to know
Humbly I search for you
And I'm not gonna rest till you

Choose me, use me
Sometimes I feel so all alone
I'm am on my way back home
So why don't you
Direct me, bless me
Wash me whiter than the snow
I am on my way back home

    I just heard this song for the millionth time and finally realized that it is a song to God. He is our Home- He baptized us and is always with us! "Master upon my knees I pray", "Lord I know I'm just a man, know You understand...". Listen to the song again with this thought and it is even more beautiful!

    Since my grandma leave me that's when I again started doing stupid things.
    Never thinking about my family. Never thinking about my kids.
    Never thinking what will be the result to all of this stupidity I'm doing.
    To be honest I'm still doing it. Everytime I'm under on it or not I'm always thinking what should I do.
    To let go. Though I still have my parents seems like they really don't care.
    They didn't even ask me how am I? When I asked for something their answer was they can't help me.
    Until today I feel so alone that no one can help me for letting go of the stupidity I'm doing.
    I go to church just every Christmas. But last year I didn't because was busy doing my stupid things.
    As I'm writing this I'm asking my self who can help me?
    Everytime I'm singing this song it makes me feel like some electricity was in my body.
    I knew that my lord is always with me watching all of my things.
    I'm always singing this song like I'm talking to him.
    I'm the one who let go to him. Now I want to find my way back home.
    (I'm not gonna rest till you hold me, mold me sometimes I feel so all alone I gotta find my way back home.
    So why don't you choose me, appoint me wash me whiter than the snow)
    Sometimes I have this urge to ask some people if they could help me to cope up.
    Is there anyone? Please.

    This song is much related with what I am experiencing right this past days and even this day. I may mean this such us when ur in a worst situation don't just stood there and trying to solve it, there are times that you need to refresh ur self from those days. Our house is there to give us shelter but my one beloved home is the most precious above them. I have my shelter but I have my loving family who comforts me. They are always there for us, they wont leave us in a dark place, they are our angels, bringing us here in the place where we feel safe. They are my inspiration in daily life. Theres no place lyk home. Love your home. Don't forget it for this we are mold to be such right now, don't forget your home, this are the only where we are safe w? Our family. Love them as you love urself;. My precious home even its simplr it make me comfortable.
