  • Passing through this life with so much regret
    It feels like I haven't got over it yet
    It takes so long for these wounds to heal
    I'm knockin' down walls, takin' my time
    I gotta get outta here

    Where will I go, who will I become?
    I'm coming on like an elephant gun

    Reaching for the piece of life that I can't find
    The sun keeps fading away
    Searching for the feeling that will never come
    The return of the prodigal son

    Last night the moon seemed to look so empty
    I fell into a pit of despair (goin' nowhere)
    I never thought that these wounds would heal
    I fell to my knees, the rain came down
    I swear I could touch the sky

    What have I done, why was I so wrong?
    Hear the pop of my elephant gun

    Reaching for the piece of life that I can't find
    The sun keeps fading away
    Searching for the feeling that will never come
    The return of the prodigal son

    Reaching for the piece of life that I can't find
    The sun keeps fading away
    Searching for the feeling that will never come
    The return of the prodigal son

    The Prodigal Son
    His time has just begun
    Yeah yeah
    I finally found a feeling
    The return of the Prodigal Son

    Let's go and give em their money's worth Writer/s: JOHNNY WINTER
