Lyrics

The Prodigal
words and music: Hubert Dapliyan
 
I was there watching you from the day you're born, from the first step you made
I prayed courage as you walk on by, and gave you the best a mother could do
One day in my saddest time you asked your freedom and left me behind
The lonely days came into weeks came into months came into years
 
Dear child, come back to me again
Even in my deepest pain, I thought of you every now and then
Dear child, I do really care
Even when you broke my heart, took those earthly things and depart
Dear child, you know I love you still
I've counted all the days and nights waiting that one day you'll realize


Comes a time all your things were gone, and you wish to start from gold to none
In the darkest corner you cried, regrets and guilt flooded your heart and mind
And your hunger covers all the shame and set your feet way back to me 
The longing years came into months came into weeks came into days
Dear Child


Dear child, come back to me again
Even in my deepest pain, I thought of you every now and then
Dear child, I do really care
Even when you broke my heart, took those earthly things and depart
Dear child, you know I love you still
I've counted all the days and nights waiting that one day you'll realize


Dear child 
Dear child
Dear child
