lyrics

THE PRODIGAL
(Strangers)

Intro: Dm // C2 // | G2/B //// | Dm // C2 // | G ////

Dm // C2 // | G2/B ////
IN THIS LIFE I’VE SEEN A LOT OF CHANGES
Dm // C2 // | G ////
SOME GOOD, SOME BAD
Dm // C2 // | G2/B ////
PEOPLE LET ME DOWN, PEOPLE LET ME GO
Dm // C2 // | G ////
BUT WHAT’S GOING TO LAST?

I CAN’T FAKE IT ANY LONGER;
I’M TIRED OF WEARING THE MASK
DEEP INSIDE, THERE’S A HUNGER TO BE FREE AT LAST

| C //// | G/B ////
YOU OPENED THE DOOR, AND YOU LET ME IN
Am // Am/G // | F ////
I WAS THE PRODIGAL WHO’S BACK AGAIN
| C //// | G/B ////
YOU LIFTED MY HEAD, YOU SAVED MY SOUL;
| Am // Am/G // | F ////
YOU CHANGED ME ON THE INSIDE, AND YOU MADE ME WHOLE,
| Dm7 ////
YOU MADE ME WHOLE (to intro)

HE’S A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS, {v3}
LIVING WATER THAT WILL LAST
HE’S A FRIEND TO THE FRIENDLESS,
NO MATTER WHAT YOUR PAST

HE’LL OPEN THE DOOR, AND HE’LL LET YOU IN {c2}
WE ARE THE PRODIGAL WHO’S BACK AGAIN
HE’LL LIFT YOUR HEAD, AND HE’LL SAVE YOUR SOUL
HE’LL CHANGE YOU ON THE INSIDE,
AND HE’LL MAKE YOU WHOLE, HE’LL MAKE YOU WHOLE
G/B //// | C ////
GIVE ALL THE PRAISE TO THE FATHER ABOVE {bridge}
G //// | C ////
THROUGH HIS SON, HE’S |SHOWN US HIS LOVE
G //// | C ////
SO LIVE YOUR LIFE AS A | SACRIFICE TO HIM
G //// | C // F / G / (hold note)
FREE TO LOVE, AND | FREEDOM FROM SIN

Back to chorus 2

HE’LL OPEN THE DOOR, AND HE’LL LET YOU IN {c2}
WE ARE THE PRODIGAL WHO’S BACK AGAIN
HE’LL LIFT YOUR HEAD, AND HE’LL SAVE YOUR SOUL
| Am // Am/G // | F ///
HE’LL CHANGE YOU ON THE INSIDE, AND HE’LL MAKE YOU WHOLE

Key change to “D”

A / | D //// | A/C# ////
YOU OPENED THE DOOR, AND YOU LET ME IN {c2}
Bm // Bm/A // | G ////
I WAS THE PRODIGAL WHO’S BACK AGAIN
| D //// | A/C# ////
YOU LIFTED MY HEAD, AND YOU SAVED MY SOUL
| Bm // Bm/A //
YOU CHANGED ME ON THE INSIDE,
| G //// | Em7 ////
AND YOU MADE ME WHOLE, YOU MADE ME WHOLE
