  1. Love the fact that the owners were not afraid to be different. I am sad to say that even though I love it I’ll rather blend in with the rest of the people.

        Hold Me

        Take me to my home.
        Home is where my heart is.
        Home’s on that windy hill.
        Above a secret valley.
        Hovering, a heavenly cloud.
        Take me to my home.
        I’m waiting here alone.
        All packed ready to go.
        Vacating this old place.
        Leaving this world behind.

        The beyond will be greener.
        I know you’ll be there.
        You’ve been waiting so long.
        I know you’ll hold me again.
        Hold me in our home.
