when i die (introduction) lyrics – waifs

when i die won’t you bury me
in the town where i was born
most of my life i’ve been rambiling free
when i die i want to come back home

ever since i was a baby child
i knew i was born to roam
i had to climb to the top of the hill
just to see what lies beyond
now seasons change and i am still the same
i don’t belong to anyone
still a piece of me will always be
sitting in my hometown sun

in my time i have seen ten thousand setting suns
and i made my bed where i lay my head
and it never hurt anyone
it could be said that a girl like me
ain’t nothing but a prodigal son
and just like that prodigal boy i’m gonna finish off where i’ve begun

/ waifs lyrics
