When I left home to be who I am, some people said "No way"
But I laid it all down, gave everything
In my head rang the words that my father said
"You're never far, I will be where you are
And when you come to me I will open my arms"
Welcome home you, I know you by name
How do you do? I shine because of you today
So come and sit down, tell me how you are
I know son, it's good just to see your face
When I look at you holding my heart
I will give to you all that I have
Son I know, there'll be times you'll feel all alone
I will share with you the words my father said:
You are never far, I will be where you are
And when you come to me
You can bet I will open my arms
See, I've been waiting for that day just to feel your warm embrace
Your love has shown that I will never be alone
For you will welcome me home
I'll forever be for you will say to me
When I left home to be who I am
Some people said "No way"
