Lyrics

Verse 1

How faintly I remember
Your love song over me
But the further that I wander
The noise is deafening

Pre Chorus 1

Now the only thing I feel is
How far You are away
This distance now between us
Is driving me insane

Chorus 1

Father I miss You
My heart is ready now
To follow the sound
The sound of Your voice
That echoes inside

Chorus 2

Father I'm desperate
I lost my way somehow
I'll follow the truth
The truth of Your love
Back into the light

Refrain

Lead me back home
Lead me back home

Verse 2

I traded trust for pleasure
And diamonds for fool's gold
I made the world my treasure
But underpriced my soul

Pre Chorus 2

Then a whisper through the numbness
A melody of hope
That love song I remember
Is leading me back home

Chorus 1

Father I miss You
My heart is ready now
To follow the sound
The sound of Your voice
That echoes inside

Chorus 2

Father I'm desperate
I lost my way somehow
I'll follow the truth
The truth of Your love
Back into the light

Refrain

Lead me back home

Bridge

But I never reach the gate
Before You come running to me
All the words
I've rehearsed for days
Just fall at Your feet

Bridge

No I never reach the gate
Before You come running to me
All the years I threw away
In one embrace are redeemed

Chorus 1

Father I've missed You
My heart is overwhelmed
Here in Your arms
Is where I belong
Forever at home

Chorus 3

Father I love You
Nothing could take Your place
You were the first
And You'll be the last
Love of my soul

Refrain

Lead me back home
Lead me back home

Cory Asbury | To Love a Fool

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning artist Cory Asbury’s new album To Love A Fool marks his second release with Bethel Music and third album to date. The album came after a year-long sabbatical, seen in the vulnerable worship and honest reflections that accompanied that time. The album has a diverse sonic landscape, from the intimate sounds of “Dear God” and “Unraveling"; to the mountaintop moments of “The Father’s House.” The album also houses songs with mid-tempo, pop sounds, like “Sparrows” and “Canyons", bringing to the surface a new facet to Cory's classic sound. The album camps around a constant theme in Asbury's life, the love of God and His unwavering devotion to His children: "The highest king of heaven, chose to love a fool. I don't understand it, but I know I want nothing more than you."
