lyrics

I’ve packed my bags, I’m leaving home
Into the wilderness, all alone
I leave a home that was built to last
I think it’s time I left the nest. I say
“I’ve packed my bags, I’m leaving home
Into the wilderness, all alone.”
“Why leave a home that was built to last?”
They say with tears in their eyes, feeling helpless

“We made this with you in mind. Why leave it behind?
Haven’t we taught you well? Was this all just a waste of our time?”
Well, I know this home was built to hold
Built with hands other than my own
Built with blood and sweat and bone
but not my own blood and sweat and bone, oh no you see

I am a prodigal son, the one who squanders everything you’ve done
I’m self-aware of what I’ve become, yes I am
I’m the lesser of two, the lost one, thrown to the wind, work left undone
And strangely self-aware of what I’ve become, yes I am
I’m your prodigal son.

What I’ve learned is not a waste, it gave me grace
But that food you made me mother, mmm
it gave me the taste
And what I’ve learned was not a waste
It gave me faith in myself
But those boots you gave me father
Well they’re helping me walk away, walk away.

You see,
I am a prodigal son, the one who squanders everything you’ve done
I’m self-aware of what I’ve become, yes I am
I’m the lesser of two, the lost one, thrown to the wind, work left undone
Strangely self-aware of what I’ve become, yes I am
I’m your prodigal son

“Who will feed you and who will clothe you?
Who will love you and who will hold you?
No one else can love you as their own”
Well, who will need you and who will please you?
Who will succeed you and who will be you?
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know

I am a prodigal son, I’m a self-proclaimed lost one
watch me squander everything you’ve ever done, I am
a lesser of two, the lost one
thrown to the wind, work left undone
I am … I am … I am …

about

Sarah Eide Chicago, Illinois

Her songs dare question aloud spirituality, morality, relationships, societal standards, and where the line lies between right and wrong. ... more
