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.




(Guy Thomas) 2011

It's a fairly simple story
About a man who lost all he had known
But still he sees the glory
As he marches on so far from home
All the days he prayed for rain
And all the days it never came
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

Across the barren desert
Is a sun that can not be controlled
And buried like a treasure
They can never steal his heart of gold
Or take away his dreams
And all the riches he has seen
It's a place that they can never reach
And 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 said
Give me a home, hear what I say now
Give me a home

It's a fairly senseless story
About a man who lost everything and still believed
That there is still a chance for glory
And somehow someday we all might see
The heart of what's at stake
And what the Earth can give and take
And in the smiles our children make
Are all the answers to our mistakes
And where is the God we can trust
Even when he grows tired of us

Give me a home, I'm so tired
Give me a home
I know you don't know my name
Give me a home
