Have you heard the song by Phillip Phillips?
But before we go any further - is that his real name? WHY, parents? WHY.

So, this song "Home." I googled it to see what the meaning of it is. And I didn't find much. Just that it was written for American Idol, PhilPhil didn't originally love it, blah blah blah.

Anyway, though I'm fairly confident after watching the video that it was not written for adoption...
But I like to pretend it's an adoption song.

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 gonna 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 gonna this place your home
