All Your Tomorrows

Closer to Home
Lyrics by Leslie I. Benson 2009

Dedicated with love to my parents…

Home to me is not where I am,  
but where I’ve been.
It’s where I’ve come from.

It’s how I’ve loved and how I’ve laughed;
the words I’ve said and tears I’ve wept;
the ones I’ve learned from.

And even in the darkest hour, I turn to you
to see the truth, to hear the truth—
remember.

I won’t move on. I won’t let go.
I can’t forget the ones I owe,
who made me.

All your tomorrows
won’t bring you closer
to truths you’ve always known.

When you’ve gone missing,
just look behind you
the path will lead you home.

Home to me is not where I am,  
but where I’ve been and what I’ve done.
It’s where I’ve come from.

When I was small, you took me in
gave me the shade beneath your wing,
kept me from burning.

You were a martyr for my pain,
by listening, you cleared my name,
purifying.

Now matter how the shadows fall,

your wings lift me above it all.
Thank you.

All your tomorrows
won’t bring you closer
to truths you’ve always known.

When you’ve gone missing,
just look behind you
the path will lead you home.
