Summer Solstice

It must have been the summer solstice
When I first gave my heart to You
The first day of a brand new season
In a fevered passion for Your simple truth
It was the longest I'd ever felt for anything
And it gave my soul a song to sing

It must have been my adolescence
That pulled me from my childlike faith
But what I thought to be maturity
Was just neglect that I tried to vindicate
And I went drifting on the wind like the autumn leaves
But when I fell I landed on my knees

So can You throw Your arms around me and walk me home?
I've wandered off way too far for way too long
And standing broken in this wilderness of shame
I have found my only strength is in Your name
Oh Father, please, can You undo what I've done
And get me back to square one

I never saw that blizzard coming
Just woke up and ice was on the ground
And there were times this beating heart of pride
Was so stubborn it refused to make a sound
But now I'm feeling so out of my element
Frozen in the winter of my discontent

So can You throw Your arms around me and walk me home?
I've wandered off way too far for way too long
And standing broken in this wilderness of shame
I have found my only strength is in Your name
Oh Father, please, can You undo what I've done
And get me back to square one

And with the spring comes the thaw
Melting my heart reviving all
It comes full circle and then
It's summer solstice again

So can You throw Your arms around me and walk me home?
I've wandered off way too far for way too long
And standing broken in this wilderness of shame
I have found my only strength is in Your name
Oh Father, please, can You undo what I've done
And get me back to square one

Back to the summer solstice
Oh, take me back
Oh, I wanna go back

Take me back...
