a glimpse of home lyrics – lady sovereign

when i was very young so many songs were sung
so much wasted time on an uphill climb
but you where always there, a feeling in the air
there was nothing to fear you were so near
now you are here once again
as i stand in your presence
i can feel the quiet patience of your gaze
like an old superst*tion
you are haunting all my dreams and waking days

all my life i knew you were waiting, revelation antic*p*ting
all is well, the search is over, let the truth be known
let it be shown (give me a glimpse of home)

there’s no resisting you among the chosen few
it’s hard to be sure, it’s hard to endure
and when i hear your voice
i know i have the choice
to pursue an ideal, something so real
now i’ve got nothing to lose
as i see your reflection
all the answers i desire become so clear
like a page that is turning
i can look into the future without fear

you’re in my rock and roll, you’re in my very soul
though it’s heavy to bear, it’s a feeling so rare
and it’s a mystery, the way it’s meant to be
can we ever know, we’re moving so slow
there ain’t enough time in the world
as i reach up the ladder
there is something ever higher to perceive
like a fire that is burning
in my heart i know i surely must believe
