"From The Ground Up"

One by one the knots we've tied will come undone.
Like picking locks, we'll sow our seeds beneath the sun.
Our accomplice is the rain,
With patience, that of saints

It grows and grows,
Our home sweet home.

It took me 27 years to wrap my head around this-
To brush the ashes off of everything i love.
Where courage was contagious, confidence was key.

Right as rain, soft as snow,
It grows and grows and grows,
Our home sweet home.

We'll try to document this light,
With cameras to our eyes,
In an effort to remember
What being mended feels like.

We're home sweet home.

    General CommentThis song is a song of reflection. The singer, now having grown and matured (he possibly became a father), realizes the importance of family, home, and becoming a father. No feeling can compare to that of familial love, hence they take pictures to remember the feelings of love they exude for each other; for such emotions, familial closeness, and mutual love is unfortunately ethereal. I added this song to songmeanings.com because I think it has a message we can all learn from.
