15 Mile Radius

There's a fifteen mile radius in the city I call home

Where the family style is born and raised and salvation surely roams

You can hear the church bells ringing hallelujah to the king

As the hanger near the diner door is draped with suffering

Yeah the hanger near the diner door is caked with suffering 

Oh, come back home to me

 

Oh time and time again I'll find through the iridescent light

That my time spent here was surely dear when I'm restless now at night

For the days and weeks seem endless when I'm doing what I love

And the sweet aroma fills my head with praises from above

Yeah the sweet aroma fills my head with ideas from above

Oh, come back home to me

 

So I look for inspiration in my simple interactions

Not the petty shallow foolishness that brings me satisfaction

For as I write this melody the gears in my head turn

Thinking bout the people who have taught me all I've learned

Thanking all the people who have taught me all I've learned

Oh, come back home to me

 

Lord can you help me please to find my righteous call

For the steps that I have taken have now led me up a wall

Let me toast to my successes and let me weep for all I've lost

Because the feelings of belonging here are surely worth the cost

Yeah the feelings of belonging here are surely worth the cost

Oh, come back home to me
