A song by Randall Stephen Hall ©2011
Said your name was Jesus.
Said you were the one.
Said you were here to save me
When I was very young.
Said you’re here to stop all wars
Stop all men from beatin’ whores.
Stop all hunger in the world
Make us happy boys and girls.
But, why do I feel like a homeless son.
So, why do I feel like a homeless son.
Can you tell me why, I’m a homeless son
You said that love was everything.
Said you’d call that you would ring.
Said you were going far away.
That you’d be back, see me some day.
You said you’d comfort the young and old.
Hold them in your hands and when all told
Lift them up into your lovin’ arms.
Save the children from all harm.
So why do I feel like this helpless son.
So, why do I feel like this helpless son.
Can you tell me why I am this helpless son
Without you, without you?
Still see where you’re comin’ from
But I can’t stick still, I can’t belong.
Got to keep movin’, just movin’ on
And some day soon, I’m gonna see you home.
Until that time, rest easy friend.
I’ll wait to see you comin’, just round the bend.
We’ll be waitin’ in a big crowd for you
To watch all the magic tricks you do.
Until that time, I’ll be just a homeless son.
Until that time, I’ll be, just a homeless son.
Til’ that time I’ll remain you’re homeless son
Without you, without you.
