Family

Album: Analog Man (2012)
  • I've been alone most of my life
    I've never known what it was like
    To end up somewhere and not have to pack
    To be among friends I know have my back

    But now I'm here where I belong
    I've finally found a wife and a home
    And a family that matters, means more to me
    Than anything I have ever believed

    And when we are gathered together
    Tell me how blessed can somebody be

    Give thanks, break bread, say grace, bow heads
    For all of this love that surrounds me
    We laugh, we cry, stand together that's why
    It's all being part of a family

    Tried it before, never felt right
    I never dreamed that someday I might
    Be part of something bigger than me
    It makes me feel humble, finally I see

    All that we have is each other
    And that's all that I'll ever need

    Give thanks, take time to say that I'm
    So grateful for all that surrounds me
    We laugh, we cry, stand together that's why
    It's all being part of a family Writer/s: JOE WALSH, TOMMY LEE JAMES
