Through the wind and the rain I hear my mother's cry
She says, "I know my baby's out there
Just couldn't bear to ask her why
From my womb into the world
Lord, I wish the child would call
You know, I'm needing some company
She makes my life so full"

Take my advice, go ahead and live your own life
Everybody's waiting for someone to come home

Like the fire waits for the sand
This world is burning with the tension of human hands
Waiting to be cleansed, waiting for their ace of spades
They say, "I sure hope he's coming
'Cause I feel like I've just been saved"

Take my advice, go ahead and live while you're alive
Everybody's waiting for someone to come home

Come to me and cleanse my soul
(I'm free, I'm free)
Only with you am I whole
(Can't you see that I am me?)
I'll be waiting by the window
(I'll be heading for the door)

I was driving down highway 85, yeah
Had to pull off the road just to hear my radio coming in clearer
Lord, this life's so full, I said, "Why do we ask for more?"
While we're waiting for the man to come
We forgot what he's coming for

Won't you take my advice, go ahead and live while you're alive
Everybody's waiting for someone to come home

(I'll be waiting by the window)
Everybody's waiting for someone to come home
(I'll be waiting by the window)
Everybody's waiting for someone to come home
Come home
