A Song about the struggle of leaving behind religion, called 'Beautiful Thing'

I have been many things in my life. This is a song that begins and ends with what has been the driving force behind much of what I have done, and what I have not done. A song about running away and running back. This song is about the struggle not the answer.

Beautiful Thing I must leave you behind
Wait by the road and I’ll be back for you
I’ll remember your name you’ll be easy to find
You’ll still be here if the rumours were true
If I get scared will you come when I call?
If I’m alone where nobody can see
If I feel weak, the smallest of the small
If I forget all that made me me
Go Home,
Home where the hearts ruled the head to this day
I’m alone
That’s how you made me and that’s how I’ll stay
Is it ok if I bring her along?
I’ll ask permission if that’s what I need
Is this the point where it all goes wrong?
Weakness in me and in weakness I concede
Go Home,
Home where the hearts ruled the head to this day
I’m alone
That’s how you made me and that’s how I’ll stay
