"Prodigal Son" as written by and Stephen Percy Harris....
Passing through this life with so much regret
It feels like I haven't got over it yet
It takes so long for these wounds to heal
I'm knockin' down walls, takin' my time
I gotta get outta here

Where will I go, who will I become?
I'm coming on like an elephant gun

Reaching for the piece of life that I can't find
The sun keeps fading away
Searching for the feeling that will never come
The return of the prodigal son

Last night the moon seemed to look so empty
I fell into a pit of despair (goin' nowhere)
I never thought that these wounds would heal
I fell to my knees, the rain came down
I swear I could touch the sky

What have I done, why was I so wrong?
Hear the pop of my elephant gun

Reaching for the piece of life that I can't find
The sun keeps fading away
Searching for the feeling that will never come
The return of the prodigal son

Reaching for the piece of life that I can't find
The sun keeps fading away
Searching for the feeling that will never come
The return of the prodigal son

The Prodigal Son
His time has just begun
Yeah yeah
I finally found a feeling
The return of the Prodigal Son

Let's go and give em their money's worth

    General CommentTo me, the story behind the song sounds like a relationship that went sour(wounds to heal.). It also looks like the person in the relationship didn't help the cause (Passing through this life with so much regret.)

    General Commentall you have to do is watch the music video to know what this song is about. It is about a man who used to be a player and got a woman pregnant. Then, later on, he tries to get custody of his kid, but can't.
