I have written about my love of Joy Williams’ new album VENUS twice before, and I say third time’s a charm!

I can’t even really put my finger on why her song “Welcome Home” resonates so much with me, but I can theorize a bit. I like the idea that even if we get lost – literally or metaphorically – we can always find our way home again. I believe that even when you lose your way, you’ll never forget your way home, the place where you’ll always be loved and accepted.

As always, the song can be found when you click on the photo.

Hello, I’ve been waiting for you
I didn’t know if you’d recognize my voice
Cause I’ve been whispering your name again and again
I’ve been imagining this day and I’ll never be the same

Welcome home
Welcome home
It’s so good to see your face
Welcome home

We dance and sometimes only fall
We sing even when there are no words
And I hope love lifts you up again and again
And if you ever lose your way, let me be the first to say

Welcome home
Welcome home
It’s so good to see your face
Welcome home

Come inside from the cold and rest your weary soul
You belong, you are loved, you are wanted
You’re not alone
I’ve missed you so

Welcome home
Welcome home
Without you here, it’s not the same
And I’ve been waiting here
Welcome home
