Welcome Love
I have made a place for you here
I know every word they say
I’m the only one to make you change

Change if you want
But don’t you go and change for me
I can love you for who you are
Didn’t mean to make you want to leave

It’s a fight between my heart and mind
No one really wins this time
No one really wins this time

If you don’t find the love you want
If I have acted ungracefully
I don’t want to see you go
Never meant to make you want to leave

Go if you want
Make your way straight to the door
I hope that you look back before you go
Because grace looks perfect before it starts to leave

It’s a fight between my heart and mind
No one really wins this time
No one really wins this time

In the end let’s find a place and cry
I don’t want to win this time
I don’t want to win this time

Change if you want
But don’t you go and change for me
I will love you for who you are
Didn’t mean to make you want to leave

It’s a fight between my heart and mind
No one really wins this time
No one really wins this time

In the end let’s find a place and cry
I don’t want to win this time
I don’t want to win this time

In the end let’s find a place and cry
I don’t want to win this time
I don’t want to win this time

    General CommentOne more comment, now that I've been smacked over the head and belatedly convinced that it's about homosexuality within the Church: both the Sundance Channel's documentary miniseries "One Punk Under God" (which follows the life of Jay Bakker, son of Jim and Tammy Faye, who payed a price for welcoming GLBT individuals into his ministry) and the forthcoming indie documentary "For the Bible Tells Me So" (in limited theatrical release starting on October 5) speak to the same issue in rather powerful terms.

    It's long past time to beat these particular swords into plowshares. Homosexuality has been with us throughout recorded history, and we're still here and thriving, and we've got so much more important things to do than to make our brothers and sisters feel unwelcome based upon with whom they choose to go to bed at the end of the day.

    Heartfelt thanks to Copeland and the contributors here.
