The 'empty grave' is Christ's.

lyrics

I been out here or the front lines;
Been down here in the trenches;
Lookin' for a refuge;
I been sleepin' on the benches.

I think they call it 'living;'
I think they call it 'Life',
But I'd have to call it, 'Hell on Earth,'
And I don't know how to make it right.

But I'm one day closer to home
Yes, I'm one day closer to home.
I am one day close to home.

When I stop and look around me,
It makes me realize
That it's mostly and illusion;
I can't tell the truth from lies.

Love might be the answer
If it doesn't break your heart.
I'd settle for an open grave--
Might be a place to start.

But I'm one day closer to home
Yes, I'm one day closer to home.
I am one day close to home.

When the darkness like a river
Has come to set me free
And I walk along his midnight waves
Down to a wider sea.

I'll stand upon the final shore
And nearly home at last
I'll bless the rising sun again,
Turn my back upon the past.

But I'm one day closer to home
Yes, I'm one day closer to home.
I am one day close to home.

about

Pete Grubbs Brookville, Pennsylvania

I started performing music when I was 6, turned pro at 20ish & spent well over 30 years tracking down as many gigs a month as possible. While those days are behind me, I'm still making calculated noise. My music lives where rock, classical, folk, blues & parody hang out. Oddly enough, one of their favorite haunts appears to be in collections of my songs--you'll find a bit of each on every track. ... more
