You've come so far weary child
We can feel the ache in your bones
You've been dragging so long
They never spoke your tongue

We will shelter you
There will be no more ridicule
We will love you always
It can be this way if you come home

You were in a spin front to back
You would wonder if you were wrong
You felt lost in space
But everything is as it should

We knew this all along
We promise you

We will shelter you
There will be no more ridicule
We will love you always
It can be this way if you come home

    General CommentThis is an incredible song. I first heard it on an episode of CSI, and after searching tirelessly for it, i finally found out what it was.
    To me, the song is talking about someone who just feels like they've been trying so hard for so long at life, and just can't seem to get it right, and then finds someone (or something) that accepts them. The underlying lesson is to have faith that we are all here for something ("Everything is as it should")

    General CommentIt sounds like aliens are the ones accepting him, maybe I just think that because of the mysterious vibe I get from hearing this song. I love this song.

    My InterpretationTo me, this is a love song to a child with autism.

    You've come so far weary child - you've had to struggle to learn what you know how

    We can feel the ache in your bones - we understand how hard it has been for you

    You've been dragging so long - and we know how long this journey has been

    They never spoke your tongue - other people have misunderstood you


    We will shelter you - you are safe with us

    There will be no more ridicule - no more abuse from people who don't understand

    We will love you always - nothing you say or do will push us away

    It can be this way if you come home - not literally coming home... opening up to people and learning to communicate


    You were in a spin front to back
    You would wonder if you were wrong
    You felt lost in space
    But everything is as it should - this all feels like reassurance that it's ok to be who you are




    This song is just beautiful.

    General CommentMaybe it says something about my paranoid, untrusting personality, but to me this song sounds like a cult trying to lure a fragile and vulnerable person into their "family". The hypnotic nature of the music itself makes me think of brainwashing. "You're weak and weary. We will take care of you and love you if you join us. Never mind the plan to eat apple sauce with a dangerous combo of drugs to catch that comet we are going to take a ride on" lol
