Each spring millions of students graduate from high school and take a critical step toward adulthood. This is a bittersweet rite of passage for both parents and their children. As these graduates move into the next phase of life, their definition of  “home” evolves beyond parents, siblings, and the house they grew up in, to perhaps, an apartment, roommates, education, travel, career, partners, spouses, and children. Home is where the heart is, and these first steps into adulthood are for hearts that are ready to expand, ready to include, ready to call more places and more people … home.

Lyrics

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
