Mary Rocap: Music

Turn Toward Home

(Turn Toward Home from the CD Spring)
August 6, 2017
my words and music

I wrote this in the spring of this year (2017) for the lost souls out there, some known to me, others known to you.

My good friends Lise Uyanik and Cindy Stevens and my niece Jessa Tobin join me on the harmony vocals. 

There is a cold wind and it’s blowing

You can’t be out there on your own

Your coat is thin, your hunger showing

It might be time to turn toward home

         Turn toward home, Turn toward home

         It might be time for you to turn toward home

You thought you knew what you were doing

There is no shame in being wrong

All the pain that you are feeling

Will not last a life-time long       

Turn toward home, Turn toward home

         It might be time for you to turn toward home

You have been a-wandering

O’er mountain, field, and plain

Can you find what you are looking for

When no one knows your name?

 

There is a cold wind and it’s blowing

You can’t be out there on your own

You’ve lost yourself in the unknowing

It might be time to turn toward home
