Lookin' for Home*
  .
I've spent a lifetime lookin' for home
In all the wrong places
Searchin' the streets and lookin' for spaces...
What I've been hopin' for,
Lookin' for love
In all the wrong faces
Searchin' their eyes and lookin' for traces...
Who I've been dreamin' of.
Playin' the game the world wants us to
Tryin' to win by actin' the fool,
Wantin' to find a home for forever
I'll be blessed the day I discover
Where my heart's supposed to be
Right now I just can't see.
I've been lookin' for home
In all the wrong places,
Lookin' for love
In all the wrong faces,
Forever askin' in love
For help from above.
I had no home, no place in sight
Everywhere I looked
Was just another sleepless night.
Don't know when my lookin' started
Don't know where it will end,
I've turned to too many a stranger
I thought was my friend.
I've been lookin' for home
In all the wrong places,
Lookin' for love 
In all the wrong faces,
Forever askin' in love
For help from above.
Then came Jesus
Knockin' at my heart's door
He's everything
I've been lookin' for.
Now that I've found Home 
For Forevermore, 
In my Savior's arms
My Lord I adore,
There's no more lookin' for places
No more lookin' in faces
No more lookin' for home
In this world anymore.
I've been blessed to discover
Home's been a waitin'
A love for forever,
Movin' in now without hesitatin'.
