"Dear Fellow Traveler" as written by and Alex Brown Church....
Dear fellow traveler
Under the moon
I saw you standing in the shadows and your eyes won't move
You put your hand out
Opened the door
You said come with me boy, I want to show you something more

You spoke my language
And touched my limbs
It wasn't difficult
To pull me from myself again
And in our travels
We found our roads
You held it like a mirror, showing me the life I chose

And I returned to my beautiful city
Black skies changed into blue
And my love is so wise and so pretty
But tonight I still dream of you

Dear fellow traveler
Under the moon
I think I'm growing weary and I'm hoping you'll come soon
And if I see you
In clean new clothes
I hope you hold the mirror up to show me what I chose

And I returned to my beautiful city
Black skies change into blue
And though my love is so wise and so pretty
Some nights I'll still dream of you
And I'll return to my beautiful city
Black skies change into blue
And though my love is so wise and so pretty
Some nights I'll still dream of you,
You

And I know you're out there, in the shadows
I know you're out there, in the shadows
I know you're out there, in the shadows

Dear fellow traveler, underneath the moon
Dear fellow traveler, underneath the moon
Dear fellow traveler, underneath the moon

    Song MeaningI believe this song is about a drifter who one night on the trail found someone and began roaming with this fellow drifter over there travels they developed a close friendship and judging by the line "you spoke my language and touched my limbs" maybe even a physical relationship and that they may be in a foreign land and after a while the singer gets home sick and returns home to settle down but there friend had different dreams to chase so they split up. years later once the singer is settled down and with someone else they remember the fellow drifter and start dreaming about what could have been if they stayed with them
    (sorry if this is hard to read writing is not my strong suit)
