Homesick

"This World Is Not Your Home"

But how can that be?

I'm young and care free

Not a cloud to be seen

Just a kid turning five years old

 

"This World Is Not Your Home"

But how can that be?

This Church, my Family

Are so loving to me

Just a kid who turned ten years old

 

"This World Is Not Your Home"

But how can that be?

I had friends, I was happy

Now I Silently Scream

Just a girl past sixteen years old

 

"This World Is Not Your Home"

Oh, how I See

All around kids sin freely

As I pray "Please Save Me"

Homesick for God, nineteen years old
