Far From Home

  • Oh what a world to take my breath away
    From canyon deep to star above
    All take their place to start the symphony
    of a great big love

    I've seen the valley from the mountaintop
    Sailed cross the blue and back again
    From east to west
    Majestic tapestry I can't comprehend
    (but that's not where I long to be)
    (That's not where I long to be…)

    [Chorus]
    Now I'm stuck here
    But I don't belong here
    Though my heart and soul are inclined to roam
    Time is coming when I'll be with my Jesus
    But for now I'm far from home

    (ye~ah yeah…)
    (though I'm a stranger in a strange land…)

    This land can be a lot of fun, yeah
    I'd start a list of all that thrills me
    And never get done
    (but that's not where I long to be)
    (That's not where I long to be…)

    [Chorus]
    Now I'm stuck here
    But I don't belong here
    Though my heart and soul are inclined to roam
    Time is coming when I'll be with my Jesus
    But for now I'm far from home

    Shubidee doo badow [repeat]
    Diggadum dum badow
    (That's not where I long to be…) [repeat]

    [Chorus]
    Now I'm stuck here
    But I don't belong here
    Though my heart and soul are inclined to roam
    Time is coming when I'll be with my Jesus
    But for now I'm far from home
    (Now I'm stuck here but I)
    I don't belong here
    Though my heart and soul are inclined to roam
    Time is coming when I'll be with my Jesus
    But for now I'm far (so far)
    I wanna be where you are
    Maybe I'm not so far from home Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
