Welcome Home
Words and Music: Lenny ?Lee? Ackley/ © 2005

I never thought you?d wind up here, and yet you?ve arrived
Now all of my plans-they fall away, into the great divide
Now there?s no focus- can?t you see
so I reach for you
and I?m having that dream where no one has eyes
but I find my way through

and when I woke up- nothing had changed
and I laugh to myself
and still there?s no words, but

Welcome home, Welcome home
You?ve come to me
Now we start again

I pray for the love that finds you here- that love is alive
but in that cathedral called your heart- I just may not survive
My life is a lazy afternoon, and I look to the sky
to see where you find your faith in me
and what makes you cry

And when I woke up- it started to rain
It?s so cold outside
and there?s nowhere to go, but

Welcome home, Welcome home
You?ve come to me
and now I see

You?ve shaken me out from the shadows
I feel the sweet embrace of your Lazarus soul
With you I see those streaks of light on the horizon
and I hear the children sing

Come now and walk with me my dear- to the village square
Do you think they?ll still remember me, when I never cared?
You see I?ve been drowning in my fears
please drop me a line
and rescue me from this private hell of my own design

just then I woke up- and nothing had changed
and I laugh to myself
so I throw on my clothes and run for the door
see the moon in the sky
and you standing there........

Welcome home, Welcome home
You?ve come to me
Now we start again
