Painting Pictures of Egypt

Sara Groves


Verse 1: I dont want to leave here
I dont want to stay
It feels like pinching to me
Either way
And the places I long for the most
Are the places where Ive been
They are calling out to me
Like a long lost friend

Verse 2: Its not about losing faith
Its not about trust
Its all about comfortable
When you move so much
And the place I was wasnt perfect
But I had found a place to live
And it wasnt milk or honey
But then neither is this

Chorus: Ive been painting pictures of Egypt
Leaving out what it lacks
And the future feels so hard
And I want to go back
But the places they used to fit me
Cannot hold the things Ive learned
Those roads were closed off to me
While my back was turned

Verse 3: The past is so tangible
I know it by heart
Familiar things are never easy
To discard
I was dying for some freedom
But now I hesitate to go
I am caught between the Promise
And the things I know

Chorus

Bridge: If it comes to quick
I may not appreciate it
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?
And if it comes to quick
I may not recognise it
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?
