Bring your good fortune & come in out of the race
Pleased to see you say all
You’ve been gone so long this town lost its taste
And time reduced to the crawl

You left not knowing if you would return
Your heart packed tightly in your case
And now so surprised at all that has changed
Your friends remain the beauty in this place

Put your flag on the fly, ‘cause we’re back on a high
Now we now know nobody left on their own
‘Cause we were watchin’ the tide, trying to close the divide
& then our good good friend returned home

Reborn on the breeze, aboard ships with square sails
Heard wisdoms and the joker’s cheer
It’s a starry long night for a traveller’s tale
Fill your glass, for our good friend is here

Now it’s been raining since the day you left us alone
Just your congregation asking, “why the hell you come back home?”

Bring in your good fortune and busted bootlace
Pleased to see you say all
Those days you were gone felt like years put to waste
We didn’t forget you at all
