Prodigal daughter

tell me when I’ve had enough
give me my taxi fare
make sure that I get there

said the prodigal daughter

take me out to harbour lights
laughin’ with new friends we’ve found
but if I jump in don’t let me drown

said the prodigal daughter

’cos home is where you’ll hear the truth
and they know you better than you know yourself
home

I’ve been waiting all through Lent
and I can’t wait anymore
just don’t let me wake up on this floor

she laughs, the prodigal daughter

’cos home is where you’ll hear the truth
and they know you better than you know yourself
home

tell me when I’ve had enough
put me in a taxi, gimme the fare
there’ll be hell to pay if I don’t get there

said the prodigal… daughter

– vocalise

they know you better than you know yourself
