When most little girls dreamed of having
A shining knight to love
Her heart was already set on treasures up above
She knew her travels would take her
To those streets of gold
Already homesick for heaven, I suppose
When there’s laughter all around her
And all her struggles put away
I see that melancholy smile no one’s supposed to see
I ask her how she’s feeling as I pull her close
She says “I’m homesick for heaven, I suppose”.
Many years from now
When her children are all grown
She’ll have bittersweet memories of her journey home
She’ll finally come to the place
She was always reaching for
And she won’t be homesick for heaven anymore.
She won’t be homesick for heaven anymore.
