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 going to 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 going to 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 going to make this place your home

    Home is the deepest interior place where the spirit meets the flesh. A place only god himself can enter in. In settling down and abandoning our total selves to him, it is only then that he can truly possess and mold us into what we were created for. The total giving of self, fear, anxieties gives us the opportunity to show him how much we are willing to trust, so that he can then replace the empty cave that bears anguish, betrayal, deception and hurts and turn it into a place where he alone dwells. In abandoning all of our demons it creates a place for our "papa" to reside, our true home, heaven on earth. For wherever he is, that's where our true home is.

    Phillip said this wasn't the sort of song he would write, so even he was interpreting its meaning. However, his performance(s), both in the finale and after winning, show that the song had a profound affect on him. The lyrics certainly appear to have a religious theme on the surface, but back to his performance, it was obvious that he felt an even deeper connection. If he is a true christian, which I hope he is, then just maybe the message of the lyrics to phillip are that christ was with him this far, and will continue to be with him as he goes down the unfamiliar road of -life". Wouldn't that be great if everyone understood this and believed.

    The song is about adjusting to a new place. You may feel alone or overwhelmed (fame for phillip, war zone for soldiers, two people in love moving to a new place, a person starting a new life all by his/herself) but there will always be someone (a loved one) or something (music!) to comfort you :) great song- I feel like he is singing this to me himself, and that this song will always be there for me.
