[Verse 1]
I got nothing to hold me here
My old friends have all moved on and disappeared
It won’t be long now ’til I fly
But oh my dear ones how I hate to say goodbye

So I sing holy holy from this prison where I lie
My arms reaching up to touch the sky
I sing holy holy, hallelujah I am free
Come on down and join the jubilee

[Verse 2]
I don’t hunger and I don’t thirst
There is nothing that I need upon this earth
My body’s broken but not my soul
You know it’s love and only love that’s made me whole


[Verse 3]
I’m an orphan thirty years on
How I miss my father’s voice and my mother’s arms
I was you once, and now you’re me
It’s in this circle that we make a family
