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 to just see your face

When I look at you, holding my heart
I would give to you all that I have
Son, I know, there'll be times that
You will 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

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

Said, I've been waiting for that day
Just to feel your warm embrace
Your love has shown, I will never be alone
For you will welcome me home
I'll forever be for you will say to me

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 left home to be who I am
Some people said, no way

    I think this song is about how Brian is leaving his family to be part of the Backstreet Boys. Some people said it may not work out, but his dad always gave him words of encouragement and said that he'd always be welcome home.
