lyrics

Under the mountain I came
Searching for the doors
I could not help myself
Oh gatekeeper, why does the brightest star
Shine here and nowhere else?
This beauty I’ve never known before

Drums crash, gates rising
My soul dances like fire
With stained glass we try
But even Michael Angelo could not describe
This ceiling above me
Where angels cry
Alleluia, Alleluia, Welcome home
Yes I was home

So gatekeeper laughing at me
Bring your keys lets go
‘Cuz I here a city sing, Alleluia, Alleluia
Bright-eyed he whispered
There’s a crowd around the thrown
Yeah, I’ll take you to the King
Oh, Oh, Oh

Drums join the trumpets, a’ ringin’
Church bells like fire
They light music in cannons that
Pachelbel would never think to write
The Son running toward me
The kingdom cried
Alleluia, Alleluia, Welcome home

They cried, Alleluia, you’re home
They cried, Alleluia, you’re home
They cried, Alleluia, you’re home
They cried, Alleluia, you’re home

Drums crash, gates rising
My soul dances like fire
With stained glass we try
But even Michael Angelo could not describe
This ceiling above me
Where Angels cry
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Welcome home
Yes, I was home
