Family

Album: Eye On It (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This string-soaked ode to those closest to us finds Toby giving us a glimpse into the everyday disagreements between two people who love each other. "The song 'Family' comes from personal experience," he said. "There are many times my wife and I are sitting there, with a wall between us, trying to figure out how we can get back to being unified. Inevitably, what penetrates the wall is that we both want the same thing: preserving our love, our family and our faith in God. We are on the same side."
