Runaway Son (Lyrics)

Lead vocals: Chris Thompson
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

Good sister won’t you let me in
I’m in need of some warmth and shelter
It’s a hard luck story don’t know where to begin
I’ve been riding on life’s helter-skelter

Save me, holy mother please save me
I got a heart of gold

And for your love I’d go hungry and thirsty
I need a saviour and you’re the one
I throw myself into the arms of mercy
There’s still hope for the runaway son

My good father he say to me
Better come back to your senses
There’s an empty bottle lying on the floor
And it’s untermined your defences

Save me, holy mother please save me
I got a heart of gold

And for your love I’d go hungry and thirsty
I need a saviour and you’re the one
I throw myself into the arms of mercy
There’s still hope for the runaway son

Good brother show me how to get home
I’ve been walking in the backyard of Satan
I’m so stubborn that I’ll never give in
But now my hearts cold and aching

Save me, holy mother please save me
I got a heart of gold

And for your love I’d go hungry and thirsty
I need a saviour and you’re the one
I throw myself into the arms of mercy
There’s still hope for the runaway son
