This Is Us

Sunday, February 16, 2020

This is Us has been shown on NBC starting in 2016. The story covers the lives and friends of 2 parents & their 3 children. The time setting flips back & forth from the children as babies, triplets, to the present setting. & in between. Of the 3 premature babies, one died. The parents adopted a Black baby boy, to be raised with the other babies. (Baby Randall was born on the same day as the triplets & abandoned by his father. The parents of the babies adopted him, as they believed they were meant to have 3 children.) I started to watch this, but got all confused & flipped to another channel. (Apparently, ‘shame on me’, as it has won many awards. Sigh) Wiki calls it a comedy drama, family drama, & romantic & tragic. Anyhow, the original parents were Jack & Rebecca Pearson. Their children are Kevin & Karen, & adopted brother Randall - they were known as “The Big Three”.



Hold On
(For the life of me, I could not find who wrote this song. It has a lovely video clip with it)



Loving and fighting
Accusing, denying
I can't imagine a world with you gone
The joy and the chaos, the demons we're made of
I'd be so lost if you left me alone
You locked yourself in the bathroom
Lying on the floor when I break through
I pull you in to feel your heartbeat
Can you hear me screaming, "Please don't leave me!"




Hold on, I still want you
Come back, I still need you
Let me take your hand, I'll make it right
I swear to love you all my life
Hold on, I still need you



Long endless highway, you're silent beside me
Driving a nightmare I can't escape from
Helplessly praying, the light isn't fading
Hiding the shock and the chill in my bones
They took you away on a table
I pace back and forth as you lay still
They pull you in to feel your heartbeat
Can you hear me screaming, "Please don't leave me!"



Hold on, I still want you
Come back, I still need you
Let me take your hand, I'll make it right
I swear to love you all my life
Hold on, I still need you



I don't wanna let go
I know I'm not that strong
I just wanna hear you
Saying "baby, let's go home"
Let's go home
Yeah, I just wanna take you home




Hold on, I still want you
Come back, I still need you
