Sense of home is all of this and more
Voice of love flies just beyond the door
Contemplating, I no longer change
Built my hope according to the day

Beautiful boys and girls
Beautiful broken world
Beautiful boys and girls
God if I pray, so long so loud
It's that most days you don't make a sound

Sense of home was lost along the way
Naked bodies buried in my veins
Nations rise and buckle in the weight
Homesick for the words I couldn't place

Beautiful boys and girls
Beautiful broken world
Beautiful boys and girls
God if I pray, so long so hard
It's that most days you don't make a sound

When you find me at the well
Will you comfort me until
Will you recognize my face
And replace, change

Beautiful boys and girls
Beautiful broken world

    General CommentI think this song is about when he felt he belonged and was positive about life and all, but then how he lost that along the way. The part of the well brings to mind the time Jesus turned a prostitute's life around. In fact, the mention of naked bodies buried in veins may be referring to her addiction to sex. I don't know though, it seems to me Denison usually writes middle-weighted lyrics out of a knack for imagination.

    And I think the chorus refers to the beauty of broken people in terms of possible redemption.

    I love Denison's simple poetic lyrics.
