The Family is the Rock

 Oh, we know what feeling alone feels like,

And we know how it feels to feel rejected;

But the worst feeling in the whole wide world

Must be the feeling that youre unconnected.

With no ties at all to bind you,

No family ahead or behind you.

What else in this world do you have to keep you sane?

We all need to know that were a necessary link

In a never ending chain.

***

There are times when the family rock is too heavy.

Times when you really dont need reminding

How much the folks who love you, love you.

When the ties that bind are all too binding

The minute you get your freedom

You realize how much you need em

What else in this world do you have to keep you sane?

We all need to know that were a necessary link

In a never ending chain.

***

Cause its the family roots that feed us,

The family circles that need us,

The family lives that lead us on

And on and on.

And its the family dreams that drive us,

The family will survive us;

Yes, the family will be here when were gone,

When were gone.

***

 Oh the family is the rock,

The foundation and the soul.

The family is the heart,

Makes us human, keeps us whole;

You may wander from the circle,

You may wander from the flock,

But you come home to the family,

Cause the family is the rock;

THE FAMILY IS THE ROCK.
