Please take me home
I want to see
I want to breathe you
King, you’re a broken crown,
a crooked smile
I mourn you
Please take me home

Your gravel jive
of weathered chimes,
my hope’s slippery slope
Oh, but King you are my home,
a vessel carrying forgotten promises,
the refugee at the Cape of supposed Hope
I need you to stretch your arms,
embrace my weakened soul

Take me in and breathe me deep inside your soil
King, my home,
a hidden treasure,
never forget where I come from
so please,
please, take me home!
