This Is My Family
Leela Grace  

This is my family
All families are not the same
Theyíre not just what you see within the picture frame
It is the day to day
It is the way we feel
It is the words we say that make something real

[chorus] This is my family
We live within these walls 
They do not look like me but I donít care at all 
And this is my loverís loom 
Where she weaves the love 
That fills up all the rooms and covers all of us   

This is my family
It does not look like yours
But weíre not the enemy
Why do you wage these wars?
For we are bound by soul
And we live by heart
Now why is it your goal to tear us apart? 
[chorus]

The laws donít make our ties
Itís not by blood weíre bound
But itís in love we rise
This is the home weíve found

[last chorus] This is my family
We live within these walls 
They do not look like me but I donít care at all 
And this is my daughterís loom 
Where she weaves the love 
That fills up all the rooms and covers all of us
