06. Long Time Coming

Life Is A Church
by David Phelps


Will somebody please tell me
How did I end up in this crazy place
There must be something wrong with this mirror
ĎCause I donít recognize my own face
Well I guess Iím just a modern day prodigal son
But Youíre looking at me like Iím a chosen one
With Your arms open wide, now Iíve lost all my pride
And Iím yours, Iím yours

Itís been a long time coming
Been a twelve round fight
Been a thousand nights of darkness
But I finally see the light
Seems my never ending search is coming to an end
Itís been a long time coming
Iím coming home
Iím coming home

Lord, now that Youíve pulled back the curtains
I can see You everywhere
And I wanna empty out all my pockets
Till thereís only one thing thatís there
Cause I canít have nothing holding me down
When Iím on my way to You
Youíre my life, Youíre my love
And Youíre all I know thatís true


Well now everybody says that you donít know what youíve got Ďtil itís gone
Well now itís gone and I know
And I want it back, so here I go, here I go, here I go, go, go


By Greg Bieck/Jason Houser/Matthew West

Behind the Song:
"Iíve always related to the parable of the Prodigal Son: the bright lights of the city, greener grass, feeling trapped in normalcy, and in general, putting myself first. I hope I can do for my children what the father in that story did for his wayward son. Obviously he had created a home where the fires burned warmer and brighter than those his son found on his quest. Time after time, my rebellion has ended in a repentant journey home." - David Phelps
