"Major Fifth"

I'm coming back again
To a place I've never been
All of this surrounding me
Is more than I could ever see
And now it seems as though
All the things I used to know
Have gone away and left me here
All alone and full of fear
I never knew it, till I went away
That it always overwhelmed me at the end of every day
And now I'm thinking, where did they go?
All the things I used to wonder, the things I used to know

I read the Bible and
Found only fictions there
But they're the best I've ever heard
I loved them every single word
I tried to find a friend
But they'd all been born again
Turn away from what I need
I'm thinking they're afraid of me
And now I'm wonderin, what can I do
I'm all tangled up and lonely, I'm torn down and blue
You always told me I might be wrong
But I was caught out running, never thought it'd take so long

And when the minor slips into my life
I look around and know that I'm not all right
Then I hear your voice
And I'm on my way, far away

This world keeps changing, I'll stay away
It'll only take a moment, just a while each day
But you remind me of things I knew
There was never more to anything than what I had with you

And then the minor slips into my life
I look around and know I'm doing fine
I'm on my way
I'll be there someday, far away

They call me major major major major fifth
