I Don’t Belong

I DON’T BELONG

words by Gloria Gaither, music by Buddy Greene  buddygreene.com

It’s not home
Where men sell their souls
And the taste of power is sweet
Where wrong is right
And neighbors fight
While the hungry are dyin’ in the streets
Where kids are abused
And women are used
And the weak are crushed by the strong
Nations gone mad
Jesus is sad
And I don’t belong

Chorus:

I don’t belong
And I’m going someday
Home to my own native land
I don’t belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a “welcome home” band
I don’t belong
I’m a foreigner here
Singing a sojourner’s song
I’ve always known
This place ain’t home
And I don’t belong

Don’t belong

But while I’m here
I’ll be living like I’ve nothin’ to lose
And while I breathe
I’ll just believe
My Lord is gonna see me through
I’ll not be deceived
By earth’s make-believe
I’ll close my ears to her siren song
By praisin’ His name, I’m not ashamed
‘Cause I don’t belong

Repeat Chorus

I belong
To a kingdom of peace
Where only love is the law
Where children lead
And captives are freed
And God becomes a baby on the straw
Where dead men live
And rich men give
Their kingdoms to buy back a song
Where sinners like me
Become royalty
And we’ll all belong

Yes I belong
And I’m going someday
Home to my own native land
Where I’ll belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a “welcome home” band

Yes, I’ll belong
No foreigner there
Singin’ a sojourner’s song
I’ve always known
I’m going home
Where I belong

Yes I’ve always known
This place ain’t home
And I don’t belong
