Walking by your house,
and reeking of the drinks I've had
My life is just a waste, a blinded waste
and I'm wide awake
my eyes have met with yours
depressions gone away
I won't walk away from you
like the prodigal I've been
I'll never run away from you
cuz I've seen the other side
I'm never going back again
back again right now
with my eyes, my eyes wide open
my eyes, my eyes wide open
I walked away from you
and I walked away from you

    General CommentListen this is my boyfriend and my song. I am sorry to whoever BrokenPromise is, but even the few words that were off ruined the song. "Prodicle" is not a word, and doesn't make sense with the song, however "prodigal" is a word... look it up... it helps give meaning to all of this. Thats why I fixed this!

    General Commentfor whatever reason, he says prodicle. listen to the song.. there is no g sound.. turn it way up, you hear the "ka" sound. maybe because of his drinks he says that, there is no g sound.

    General CommentLook up the word Prodigal? and listen to his pitch through the whole song. the "kgal" sound he makes, but it is definetly the word.. it means "one who spends or gives foolishly" he's giving in foolishly to the girl...

    General CommentThis song is about his relationship with God. He (Josh, the singer) used to live in Canada and went to bars and got drunk a lot and when he would walk home, he would pass a church. That's the part about "walking by your house and reeking of the drinks I've had." And then he talks about how his life is a waste because he hasn't been a christian and now that he is one, he's "never going back again" to that old life. It's an awesome song.
