Lyrics

I'll admit I don't know much about this life
I spend a long time on the outside looking in, never feeling accepted
Thinking that's just the way it was
But somethin' happened, somehow life brought you to me
And I think that's when I realized I belong
My family's been here all along
And boy, it's good to have a friend, so
Maybe I don't always need to feel so small
Maybe this planet ain't so bad after all

From here on out, I'll never let you down
I won't be perfect all the time, but I'm always gonna try, yeah
I don't care where, I'll always be right there
'Cause I've got a family to call mine
And family means no one gets left behind

You bet I'll try to bring you all the sunny days
And if you cry, I'll be there all the same
So bring the thunder, bring the rain
'Cause you know

From here on out, I'll never let you down
I won't be perfect all the time, but I'm always gonna try, yeah
I don't care where, I'll always be right there
'Cause I've got a family to call mine
And family means no one gets left behind, yeah, oh
Left behind, yeah, oh

And I'm not what you expected
I wasn't part of the plan
But whatever happens, I can promise you that

From here on out, I'll never let you down
Can't claim I'll do everything right, but I'll love you all my life, yeah
I don't care where, I'll always be right there
'Cause I've got a family to call mine
And family means no one gets left behind, yeah, oh
Left behind
'Cause family means no one gets left behind, yeah, oh
Left behind, yeah, oh

'Cause I've got a family to call mine
And family means no one gets left behind

Trivia

  • While the song's title and lyrics are obviously based on the Pelekai ʻohana's famous motto, the actual part of the motto goes "nobody gets left behind"; "no one gets left behind" is a common misquotation.
