Lyrics for "(Reprise) Aching to Be Had"

track 9 from Child Coming Home (album, 2019)


Chorus 1:

How long must I wander?

How long must I grieve?

How long must I hunger?

Will there be rest for me?


Verse:

You’ve made me rest beside the water.

You gave me who was blind a new kind of sight.

You even went and made me a father.

After how I left the way, I didn’t think I had the right.


Pre-chorus:

You taught me how breathe;

you helped me reach out for your hand. But my heart is full of longing,

longing that you taught me to name.

Oh, I’m aching to come home, to be settled in your land.

Oh, my body needs belonging,

belonging that I’ve not yet gained.


Chorus 2:

How long must I wander?

How long must I grieve?

How long must I hunger?

Will there be rest for me?
