Family Lyrics

Looking back
Back on all my yesterdays
I know I wanted everything my way
Didn’t want to listen to a word you said
Though you tried
You tried to show me wrong from right
We never really saw it eye to eye
I guess I wasn’t ready for compromise

I never told you enough
How much I cared
But now I understand
You only did it for love
Protecting me
You made me into who I am

You give me strength to reach for every goal
The wings to fly, a safety net if I fall
The confidence to make my will my own
That’s what family is
It’s always there, a heart I know I can trust
An opened door, a place I’ll never be judged
You wrap me up in unconditional love
That’s what family is

Looking at
Now I’m looking at it through your eyes
A little older and I realize
No one in a family gets left behind (ind)

I know I’m never alone
You’ll be there
Standing right beside me ¹
This is the place I belong
The light you shine
Is always there to guide me home

You give me strength to reach for every goal
The wings to fly, a safety net if I fall
The confidence to make my will my own
That’s what family is
It’s always there, a heart I know I can trust
An opened door, a place I’ll never be judged
You wrap me up in unconditional love
That’s what family is

We are branches of a tree
Pointed in the same direction
Gotta give each other protection

That’s what family is
And wherever life may lead
The memories we made together
Will carry in our hearts forever
That’s what family is

You give me strength to reach for every goal
The wings to fly, a safety net if I fall
The confidence to make my will my own
That’s what family is
It’s always there, a heart I know I can trust (trust, yeah)
An opened door, a place I’ll never be judged
You wrap me up in unconditional love
That’s what family is

Family is
oh-woah, oh-woah oh-woah, oh…
That’s what family is…
