Suburbs Lyrics – Skye Peterson

Verse 1:
Greenville brought the grey skies and it rained like it was springtime
The world, it bears a beauty on its back
I love the Carolinas
The Blue Ridge and the pines
But Tennessee is all I’ve ever had

Chorus:
‘Cause somewhere in the suburbs
There’s a little gravel drive
And a home with the heart of a mother
Just waiting there inside

Post-Chorus:
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
She waits, she waits for us
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)

Verse 2:
Each day we’re out ’till midnight
I can picture the home on the hillside
See her open door and open arms
Oh, and yearning is a holy thing
It’s the imprint of eternity
A sense that there is somewhere we belong

Chorus:
‘Cause somewhere in the suburbs
She’s beckoning us home
And I can’t help but love her
I’m a child she calls her own

Post-Chorus:
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
She waits, she waits for us
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)

Bridge:
She waits for us

Verse 3:
I heard about the pilgrims when they journeyed to Jerusalem
And sang about that city far away
Deep inside this soul of mine, I ache to see those city lights
Feel that holy rest beyond the gate

Chorus:
‘Cause somewhere there’s a Kingdom
With a door that’s open wide
And a Father who’s been waiting
For His child to come inside
And the Kingdom’s come in the suburbs
In the home, in the heart of a mother, ’cause
She lives the love of the Father
Who waits for us

Outro:
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
He waits, He waits for us
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
He waits, He waits for us
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Yeah, He waits, He waits for us
