Whoever you are ... wherever you've been … whatever you've done ... and whatever you have yet to do … WELCOME!

lyrics

Welcome fellow traveller, make yourself at home.
Share the shelter of my fire; we’ll talk ‘til you move on.
You can tell your story, as you warm your bones,
sharing your experience in the sanctuary of my home.


Welcome to the teenager running from your mum,
cold and wet and hungry, forgetting that you’re loved.
Welcome to the vagrant who’s been here once before,
you know how to make your way and find a snug warm home.


Welcome fellow traveller, make yourself at home.
Share the shelter of my fire; we’ll talk ‘til you move on.


Welcome to the student, away from friends and home;
getting drunk to force a smile, as the lectures keep right on.
Welcome to the business man, jetlagged and alone.
Your wife’s moved in with your best friend because you’re never home.


Welcome fellow traveller, make yourself at home.
Share the shelter of my fire; we’ll talk ‘til you move on.


Welcome you musician, tired of the tour,
another sea of faces to take from your small store.
Welcome to the mystic who journeys in the mind.
I could use your wisdom to help sort out my life.


Welcome fellow traveller, make yourself at home.
Share the shelter of my fire; we’ll talk ‘til you move on.


Welcome to the landowner with barriers, dogs and guns.
I’ll respect your wishes though I think you’ve got it wrong.
Welcome to the refugee, starving on TV.
You once knew the good times, though today they’re hard to see.


Welcome fellow traveller, make yourself at home.
Share the shelter of my fire; we’ll talk ‘til you move on.
You can tell your story, as you warm your bones,
sharing your experience in the sanctuary of my home.
