Home By Now/ No Matter What

The locusts are singing, the sun is red
It's gotten so late somehow
There's gonna be trouble, you know what they said
We should have been home by now

The thunder is rolling, the sky is black
It's gotten so dark somehow
There's gonna be danger, God I wish we were back
We should have been home by now

No matter what they tell us, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach us, what we believe is true
No matter what they call us, however they attack
No matter where they take us, we'll find our own way back

I can't deny what I believe, I can't be what I'm not
I know I'll love forever
I know, no matter what

If only tears were laughter, if only night was day
If only prayers were answered then we would hear God say
No matter what they tell you, no matter what they do
No matter what they teach you, what you believe is true

And I will keep you safe and strong and sheltered from the storm
No matter where it's barren, a dream is being born
No matter who they follow, no matter where they lead
No matter how they judge us, I'll be everyone you need

No matter if the sun don't shine or if the skies are blue
No matter what the ending, my life began with you
I can't deny what I believe, I can't be what I'm not
I know this love's forever, I know no matter what

The thunder is rolling, the sky is black
It's gotten so dark somehow
There's gonna be danger, God I wish we were back
We should have been home by now
