Traveler
Rue du Soleil Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I wanna go home, but I don't remember where it is
I wanna feel safe, cause I forget how it is
Try to find my way back home, some day I know I will find my home
Try to find my way back home, some day I know I will find my home
I am a traveller, travel all around the world
I am a traveller, living in sometimes good
Try to find my way back home, some day I know I will find my home
Try to find my way back home, some day I know I will find my home




Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Rue du Soleil's "Traveler" paint a picture of a lost and homesick individual who has been traveling the world for a while now. The opening two lines, "I wanna go home, but I don't remember where it is. I wanna feel safe, cause I forget how it is" reveal the singer's confusion and feeling of displacement. They are physically far from home, but also grappling with the emotional and mental toll that comes with prolonged travel. The repetition of "Try to find my way back home, some day I know I will find my home" emphasizes the longing for familiarity and stability that comes with being home, and the hope that they will eventually find it.


The singer identifies themselves as a traveler, someone who has been to many places and seen many things. They describe the experience of traveling as both good and bad, as it can be exhilarating but also exhausting and lonely. The chorus ("I am a traveler, travel all around the world. I am a traveler, living in sometimes good") highlights the singer's identity as a wanderer, but also acknowledges that this lifestyle is not always ideal.


The song as a whole captures the conflict between wanderlust and the desire for roots and stability. While travel can be exciting and life-changing, it can also be disorienting and lonely. In "Traveler," Rue du Soleil captures the yearning for home, but also the underlying sense that this longing may never truly be satisfied.
