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 gonna make this place your home

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the...

    This song is God himself talking to you. saying, "hold on to me as we go", "don't pay no mind to demons, they fill you with fear", "if you get lost you can always be found", etc. He is going to make this place our home because life takes us on all sorts of journeys, good and bad, but with God by our side, he is going to make it a welcoming and enjoyable place to be.

    I played it at my sons funeral because to me it was calming. As the words played I could picture God talking to my son as he lead him into heaven where he would be making a new home. My son was not alone, God was by his side. It is comforting.

    For me it is a promise. This song came to me in a desperate time when I was trying to decide what to do with my life... It was like god saying -Don´t be afraid to become the very best version of yourself, don´t be afraid to decide what you want to be or where you want to be. I will be there for you, I will make that place you fear, a place you can call home- Believe in your dreams, work hard to make them come true, clear your mind and understand the choice you made, and He will do the rest.

    It was odd, I never thought anyone else would see God talking in this. But I have heard that since I first actually listened to the lyrics. Especially the line: "if you get lost you can always be found". This is pretty cool, too, to see other brothers and sisters hearing this ;).

    As a Jehovah Witness,this song seem to tell of enduring this current world, darkness. Only to see the garden like paradise, God always planned for mankind. As he clear out evil, and make this place our home.

    It’s about two people meeting after their divorces and navigating a new life together. It’s an unfamiliar road, especially after a very long marriage....

    Personally I believe that the song is reminiscent to someone kidnapping a person I know it's a little dark but I mean when you take the lyrics such as "if you get lost you will always be found" and "don't pay attention to the demons in your mind they will fill you with fear" kind of sounds like he's telling a person "no one's going to find you"

    According to Holden, the song is about a friend who was going through a very difficult time, and it was his way of reaching out and saying that "you know someone's here for you".

    This came from wikipedia

    God is our strength! I agree brother or sister!

    I know it's 2018, and 2012 is definitely over, but this song is still great to me, even though it's short, because it has a great meaning.. that God will always be here for us, and we shouldn't give up and let "the demons" make us fearful, but we should keep going and listening to God instead. So all in all, the meaning of the song is to "pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear" and to pay mind to God, because we will be found by him. This gives me strength, because it helps me to remember all of this in the worst times. I hope it helps you all reading this too!

    This song is explaining how hard life is. I think it's also about how hard it is with new experiences. One place is your home and you can be scared going to new places. That's why this song is called home. It's about someone facing lots of obstacles in life and explains it in a song.

    It makes me think of refugees or new immigrants, who are hesitant and scared about this new life. It’s a song about quelling fear, that support exists, and the sense of home and comfort is close.

    I think this song is supposed to be about helping others and being brave. I like to write plays and I am using this song in one of them. (It's not an actual public performance, just for fun.)

    I hear this song I think of our rabbit Tenoch. A friend of my husbands found him in front of a tow yard. We went to go get him and bring him home. I think this song is me holding him and telling him, I am taking you to your home and no matter what it will be. You have a family now. He was so young we could not tell if he was male or female. Horrible people in this world, but God brought us to him.

    Phillips said that while the song and its writers are "really good", "it's not really something I would write". He also revealed that he had wanted to use a song he co-wrote with his brother-in-law, "Drive Me," as the coronation song. In interviews after the finale, he said, "The song that I did tonight that supposedly is my single, it's not really my single, I told them it's not my single."He also said, "I have my own stories to tell," and added "[but] I couldn’t do my song [on the finale]; we just didn’t have enough time." Philip stated that he writes songs in the "jazz and rock alternative sound; not really rock-rock."Phillips said that "I "didn't have time to let it grow and become my own before we recorded it"."Later he said he was "starting to grow a connection" with the song,and that "I kind of sing it like me, and on the guitar I do some different strummings on some parts, so it's coming along." wikipedia

    My son died by suicide on 09-26-16. My husband and I were naturally having a hard time with all the questions we had of why. Why did he not come to us? Why did he not ask for help? We were both tormented by what his final moments were like. At a very low point,together we heard this song. We felt like this was what God told our son as he was taking him to an everlasting life. He was telling him not to be afraid because his demons would no longer fill him with fear. we got a great deal of comfort knowing that our son was not alone as he left this world.

    This song is about not giving up. The message is to stay strong and not be afraid to need support. Some people do not like to ask for help, even though there is nothing wrong with being unsure of the future. This song has a great message.

    I think it could be about a man and a woman going down n Life's "unfamiliar road" and the man saying hold on, we'll get through these hard times together.
