Home

Phillip Phillips won the 11th season of American Idol on May 23, 2012. Since then, his first single "Home" launched to #1 on the iTunes pop charts and stayed in the Top 5 for 8 weeks eventually going double platinum!

The World From The Side of The Moon, his first major label album, is available now.

Consider the lyrics in his hit single, Home.

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 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

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo. oo-oo-oo-oo [x2]
Aaa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa. aa-aa-aa-aaaaaa [x2]

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 gonna make this place your home

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo. oo-oo-oo-oo [x4]
Aaa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa. aa-aa-aa-aaaaaa [x4]

The video doesn't really lend itself to any vision or understanding of the streets of urban America.  However, the words describe for me the work of our Homeless Outreach Team, our Destination Home housing program for chronically homeless and disabled persons, and our community living here at CityWalk.  

Making these places home for those who've not enjoyed one for so long, that even the idea often fills them with fear, spotlights the essential nature of what we do every day at CitySquare.
