Lyrics

PRODIGAL SON

You broke apart our happy home,
You tore my heart away.
You made it seem so easy,
Made it look like child’s play.
Now, you’re standing in my doorway,
With your hat down in your hand,
Asking me to listen,
Telling me to understand.

Did you think I could forgive you
After all that you’ve done?
Did you think I’d take you back
Like some prodigal son?
Like some prodigal son?

The words crawl from your mouth
Like from a can of worms.
You and the truth
Are not on speaking terms.
You know who you are
And where you should be,
And I know exactly
What you want from me.

Did you think I could forgive you
After all that you’ve done?
Did you think I’d take you back
Like some prodigal son?
Like some prodigal son?

You could have chosen life;
Instead you chose death.
I know you’ll curse those chemicals
With your last sweet breath.
I could never figure out
Why you could never see
The truth that was so obvious,
So very clear to me:
The devil knows chemistry.
The devil knows chemistry.

Did you think I could forgive you
After all that you’ve done?
Did you think I’d take you back
Like some prodigal son?
Like some prodigal son?

Welcome home, son!
