I used to have a home
A place I started from,
A place to call my own
The bright lights and late nights
The devil took me on a midnight ride
Left me out in the desert on my own

And now I feel alone
I need a hand to help me find my way back home

I'm a drifter out on a dead end road
Trying to find my way back home
To get to You, oh to get to You
Lord I've been gone for far too long
Headed to places I don't belong
And I've got to get back home to You

Sometimes I think about the past
The road that I was on
The one that lead me home
I'll walk on another day
I may wonder but I never stray
I found out the hard way sin don't pay

And now I feel alone
I need a hand to help me find my way back home

I'm a drifter out on a dead end road
Trying to find my way back home
To get to You, oh to get to You
Lord i've been gone for far too long
Headed to places I don't belong
And I've got to get back home to You

And when I feel the night is closing in
And I can barely breathe the air
I just remember that I've got a friend
Who really cares, oh who really cares

I'm a drifter out on a dead end road
Trying to find my way back home
To get to You, oh to get to You
Lord I've been gone for far too long
Headed to places I don't belong
And I've got to get back home to You

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song.
    and from what it sounds like, the singer has lost his way in his life (and from the one he loves) and he's finally realizing it, so he looks to 'God' for help.
