Song Lyric Sunday 9-4-16 HOME

Home by Phillip Phillips

Lyrics

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home

I fell in love with this song the instant I heard it. I guess I really am connected to the masses because I have a fairly good record for predicting a catchy tune that will become a major hit (or be used for a national commercial within minutes of its release!!)

I mean seriously, can you sit still with this one cranked up loud?? It is an upbeat, driving, fear combatting love song!

But the backstory of what this song means to me is what I want to share.

When James and I first got together, I was in the middle a long fight to hold on to my house (my son’s childhood home). Just a few years before, I had lost absolutely everything except my house but had found creative (though stressful) ways to hang onto it (for dear life!)  I had sort of “built” many parts of this amazing and weird house with my own hands. It had become my only legacy and I wanted to be able to leave it for Michael.

I’ve started writing the history of our home here:

James has his own home, an amazing Mountain Retreat that he built, literally, from the foundation up. (The picture above!) He is so generous that he did exactly what this song says. Not only did he hand over HIS home to me as my own, so I could relax about losing mine. He has also fixed and saved and corrected and remodeled and added onto MINE so much that I’ve had a place to work (a huge office and Group Therapy room) and plenty of room for my family to move in with us! In other words, he has made sure we have TWO homes!!

Just love my guy. It’s as if he wrote and sang this very song for me!

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. I loved this song from the first moment I heard it. Is it just me, or does it have a Mumford & Sons feel? 🙂

    Thank you for sharing such a sweet story! Your son sounds like an amazing human being. I’m so happy you found a home to call your own. ❤
