Are you running?
Are you scared?
Are you a stranger
passing through here?

Are you tired of this pace?
Because unlike you sojourner,
we are always here.

And we are safe,
and we are sound.
And we are a lighthouse calling out,
"come home, come home."

Through these waves,
black as night,
we'll bring you home.

And on our way
we'll see all our brothers
and all our sisters.

Are you still running?
Are you still scared?
Because dying is easy,
and you know it will come quick.

Because we are loud,
and we are clear.
And all of you sojourners,
can you hear us?

Over the sound
of this terrible night,
we'll bring you home.

And on our way
we'll see all our brothers
and all our sisters.

Let us bring you home
and we will fill your sails
with our lungs.

Let our voices carry you
through all these darkened waves.

    Song MeaningThis song is about someone that is going to stand by you no matter what. They are saying take comfort in knowing we are around because we will take care of you. Great song to start an album.
