  • Text

    By Eve Michael

    With additional Latin text by Alexis Ward

    We've stuck together through thick and thin

    We may not be blood but we are family

    Through times of trials and tragedy

    I'm there for you and you're there for me

    See the sunshine on all our faces

    We will be in harmony

    Just look around and you will see

    We are a family.

    We've lost a few along the way

    Some almost every day

    In our hearts forever they'll stay

    Nostra animas aeternum in harmonia. Nos non solum.

    (Our souls will forever be in harmony. We are not alone.)

    We remain together and strong. Listen to our song.

    Souls together, forever we'll be.
