Play Your Family

Your Family

As you lay your head down we are singing you to sleep
You are running through our veins and you are in the air we breathe
And as we gather to remember and to celebrate and grieve
We are all around you, we are your family

Surely we’ll remember you for laughter
All of us remember you for stories that you told
You made your mark here for your passions
And for your loving arms that loved to hold

And we are your family
We are all the hearts that love you
Here beside you and above you
We’re the arms that have wrapped around you
Captured laughter where we found you
Full of love that you set free
Because we are your family

And when we hurt, you would listen
And when we struggled, you would help us try
You would cheer us on when we learned to walk
And when we’d run, and when we’d fly

‘Cause we are your family
We are all the hearts that love you

Here beside you and above you

We’re the arms that have wrapped around you
Captured laughter where we found you
Full of love that you set free
Because we are your family

And now we hurt, and we feel you listen
And as we struggle, you’ll still help us try
You have cheered us on all along
And now we cheer you on as you fly
And as you go, we will whisper to the skies
You were loved so much
You are loved so much
