    Lyrics

    Sometimes I don't understand
    Why I was born at all
    When all that I do leaves me empty
    Aching and longing for more
    Sometimes I feel I could stand
    Man, I feel like I'm ten feet tall
    But then it's like I'm on trial and I'm guilty
    I don't know exactly what for

    How I wish
    I could be relieved
    Fall on God's doorstep
    And be received
    But it seems he doesn't
    Care for me anymore
    So I'll be on my way
    Live from the cradle to the grave
    On my own

    Son you must understand
    Why I would let you fall
    It isn't because I don't love you
    It's not that I want you to crawl
    But the silence between us has grown
    And your towers have grown so tall
    "I let you choose; you have chosen"
    You don't seem to want me at all

    How I wish
    To be reconciled
    That you would just love me
    With the heart of a child
    But it seems you never
    Want me around anymore
    So you can have your way
    Live from the cradle to the grave
    Far from home

    How I wish (Child how I love you)
    I could be relieved (but you're so far away)
    Fall on God's doorstep (Won't you come home to me?)
    And be received (I will give you my robe)
    But it seems he doesn't (Clothe you in linen)
    Care for me anymore (Son I want you to stay)
    So I'll be on my way (I'll set you free)
    Live from the cradle to the grave (How I long to be home)

    How I wish (I've been alone)
    To be reconciled (so very long)
    That you would just love me (with a heart made of stone)
    With the heart of a child (Can you dry all the tears)
    But it seems you never (I've held in my heart?)
    Want me around anymore
    So you can have your way (I'll be on my way)
    Live from the cradle to the grave
    Far from home
