Hold on to me as we go

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

We are being washed away by waves that are crashing down.
We are standing on unfamiliar territory.
Trying to navigate through the storm.
Hold on to me as we go.
Cause I'm gonna make this place our home.

And then, you see it.
You see your reflection and your imperfections in your little little child.
And it punches you hard, in the stomach.
You see all you have hurt, all you have screamed and yelled,
all of the fights and the emotions.
You see your tantrum in them.
And you feel your exhaustion, your failures, you feel crumbled.

"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 gonna make this place your home
"

The troubles, they might drag us down.
We do feel lost, ready to be found.
Our worries make our feet, our heart, our head, feel heavy.
Hold on to me as we go,
cause I'm going to make this place our home.

Let's go back to where we started, and find the love to put us back together again.
Let's remember, we're not alone.

"Hold on to me as we go"

Hold on to us, hold on to me.
Hold on to who we were, who we are and who we are about to become.
Navigate all of these troubling waters with me.
Hold on to our smiles, our touching toes.
Our snuggles.
Our little ones that bring about big life.
Hold on to the humor we once had and have to find again.
Our laugh, hold on to me as we find a way to laugh.
There's no one I love to laugh with, more than you.

"If you get lost, you can always be found"

We're not alone.
Not when we have each other.
Not when we live in this house turned home.

We're not alone.
Not when we lean hard on one another.
We haven't lost anything yet.
Let's take a step back.
Break our cycle
and find another way.

And then, just like that,
how we are defined comes rushing all back.
In the most mysterious of ways.

On your way into another long, difficult, exhausting day.
You hear a song that makes you want to turn the car around and hug them all hard.

"Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear...
Just know you're not alone
'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home
"

Tell them that we are a family of love.
We are worth it.
We make this house a home.

"If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you're not alone
'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home
"

You open a message, and get a glimpse of a picture of who you really are.
A picture that says,
we are holding on.
Because we made this place our home.

We have so much to learn,
about parenting and balance and self care and laughing through the loud, and childhood and kids and life and love.
But, you are my rock.
You are the one I will smile through all the pain.
You are the one I will hold on to.

I found my peace through a lens.
Capturing a moment in time,
when childhood was whirling around us
and we held on, to make our house a home.

A shot of a family that is trying.
A family that is holding on so hard and so strong,
to each other.

"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 gonna make this place your home
"

We have made this place our home.
