dedicated to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia & YRUU. You are all beautiful souls.


With dirt-stained hands I built my truth,
And maybe it’s my heart, and maybe it’s my youth
You feel like home,
Feel like home to me.

The stained glass windows paint our faces blue,
I have always been able to talk to you
You feel like home,
Feel like home to me.

We left our trust at the sanctuary door,
I’ve never trusted other people more
Than I trust you,
You feel like home to me.

I am real, and I am raw, and I am right.
You give me faith, you give me fire, you give me fight.

There’s a compass on my back, and it’s bringing me to you,
This is the truth, this is the light, this is the love that I pursue,
This is my home,
You feel like home, to me.

Your shoulders pressed to mine, all standing hand in hand
Wherever we have been, together we will stand
You feel like home,
Feel like home to me.

With every breath I take
With every moment that I am awake
I'll carry you, carry you, carry you, carry you
In my heart.

This is the place I’m coming home to tonight.
I know I’ve got to leave, but I will hold on tight -
To home.
You feel like home, to me.

I'm coming home,
You feel like home, to me.
