Liner Notes: 

Felt this overwhelming sense of belonging to and being supported by family and friends past and present and these words came to me.

Lyrics: 

It's all about family

Grandma's heart
Smelt like apple pie
Miss Granddad's pipe
So much I could cry

Mommy's talc
Took away
Baby rash blues
Daddy's hands
helped me
Tie up my shoes

Life's all about family
It's life fixing glue
If it wasn't for family
You wouldn't be you
Life's all about family
Those present and gone
Hug the gift of belonging
To family as one

Sisters surround me
Teasing and smart
Brothers astound me
Love from the heart
Cousins and nephews
And need I go on
Families surround us
Hold on and keep strong

Sons and Daughters
Precious gifts from above
Are then sent to fill you
With happiness and love

.. even if with you in spirit alone
they are here with you until you go home

Life's all about family
Its life fixing glue
If it wasn't for family
You wouldn't be you
Life's all about family
Those present and gone
Hug the gift of belonging
To family as one

This is really lovely - it has a richly wam poignant and nostalgic feel with the lovely memories and details and strong sentiment in the chorus. Easy to relate to and embrace. I love the tenderness it conveys.

Good well-constructed lyric, very relatable. I was drawn in by the title and like your descriptive verses. My favorite line though - “if it wasn’t for family you wouldn’t be you.”
