After work music at ARNA's artist in residency

Welcome Home! Welcome home, wandering soul Welcome home! Your heart don't need to have a hole Welcome home! We love you because of what you are, a flower, a rock, a shimmering star!

Nothing matters to us, nothing is of weight,

except that we see you with love and not hate. Welcome home dear wandering child you no longer have to roam the wild. Welcome home.
