I have hosted over 50 people from 10 different countries as an Airbnb host, and am proud to have been named a "Superhost!"

This song is the only song I wrote where the music came before the lyrics. But when I contemplated what this music was about, it became clear it was a love song for the people from all over the world who have arrived at my door.

Lyrics

The World Has Arrived At My Door
Lyrics & Music © Maria Verven

My door is ajar
They hear my guitar
I know that they've come from afar

My friends think it strange
They say I'm deranged
To open my door to these strangers

Refrain
I've learned so much more
Than I'd known before
The world has arrived at my door

One came from Peru
We went to the zoo
I heard all about her life views

The one from far east
Made me a feast
With strange foods I learned how to eat

Refrain
Bridge
This world can be yours ... Just open your door
This world can be yours... hola, bonjour!

They leave odds and ends
They leave here as friends
We treasure the time that we spend

With common respect
Our lives intersect
We find all the ways we connect

Refrain

My door is ajar
They hear my guitar
I know that they've come from afar

Some seem so young
But they love my songs
'Bout life and getting along
