This song is about the documentary "God Grew Tired Of Us." Sudanese refugees (the Lost Boys specifically) were forced out of their homes to live in refugee camps. They had to walk a thousand miles and years later a thousand miles again throughout the desert with little food or water trying to find a place to live.

  • "GIVE ME A HOME"
  • (Guy Thomas) 2011

 

  • It's a fairly simple story
  • About a man who lost all he had known
  • And he lived a life of glory
  • In a place he carries in his soul
  • All the days he prayed for rain
  • And all the days it never came
  • And nothin' was for sure but the pain
  • Forced to leave from every place he came
  • With nothin' but scars to show
  • And still a thousand miles to go
  •  
  • Give me a home
  • Give me a home
  •  
  • Across the barren desert
  • Is a sun that sets out on its own
  • And buried like a treasure
  • They can never steal his heart of gold
  • Or take away his dreams
  • They can't be killed and can't be breached
  • It's a place that they can never reach
  • There's nothin' they could ever know or teach
  • That will ever stand the light of day
  • They only know how to stand in the way
  • When he says
  •  
  • Give me a home
  • Give me a home
  • Give me a home
  • Just give me a home
  •  
  • It's a fairly simple story
  • About a man who lost everything and still believed
  • That there is a chance for glory
  • And that somehow someday we all might see
  • The heart of what's at stake
  • And what the Earth can give and take
  • To see the other side of hate
  • As the answer to our mistakes
  • And where is the God we can trust
  • Even when he grows tired of us
  •  
  • Give me a home
  • Give me a home
  • Give me a home
  • I know you don't know my name
  • Give me a home
  •
