about

If they’re seeking "asylum" here, they’ve obviously come to the right place. Sing along with Stafford against the xenophobic madness. Thanks to our mate (and guitar legend) Colin Watson for a nice pre-mastering job.

lyrics

I
Knock, knock! Is there anybody home? / I’m waiting on your doorstep, so tired and alone

I have run through the fire, and braved the stormy sea

Lost home and friends and family, to change my destiny

Now I stand at the shore of a new world / Put your hand to the door, turn the key

I am one in your millions / I have come so far to be free

I am the voice in every wilderness / Crying, For mercy’s sake help me… Refugee

You have a green and golden land / The sun of boundless fortune lights up your shining sand

and they say that your people are quick to understand

and when someone’s in trouble, you’ll lend a friendly hand

So what’s this I hear about "security"? / What could you have to fear from me?

I am one in your millions… / For mercy’s sake help me, a lonely refugee…
