Ribbon Road lyrics


Glad To Be Back Home

With feet of clay I take the sky
And I am broken-hearted
Ever-knowing, wondering why
The sun and moon have parted
Far away among the clouds
Come what may I'm wrapped around
Wearied from the pilgrim's door
Glad to be back home

Washed in sunlight I look away
The morning dew like diamonds
Quiet sings the lark her joy
I hear the silence
Words of wisdom now are stilled
A curlew crying in the hills
With my love the burn flows on
Glad to be back home

Now the winds begin to sing
And my heart is lighter
Every angel takes her wings
And every morning brighter
See the skyway clear and long
Feel the life-blood clear and strong
Pouring out and pouring on
Glad to be back home

From the grave the spirit flies
Free from pain and sorrow
With feet of clay I take the sky
For who knows of tomorrow
Every breath is sweet to take
With every gift of life I break
And someone smiling for my sake
Glad to be back home
Glad to be back home
