about

"Uncertain" is one literal translation of our daughter's name. During her foster years it became a collective theme between her birth mom, myself and my wife, as to what family would look like. Our promise to each other during those years, regardless of the outcome, was to love her well.

The song also highlights fatherhood. While our daughter had a lot of good mothers, I was her only father figure and acutely aware of the imprint that can leave. I wanted her to see a vulnerable, yet hopeful strength in me as a man. I wanted her to know I would sacrifice my life for her even if it was only those years as her foster Dad. My hope was to model belief for her life that she could take away from, even if I couldn't become her Dad.

lyrics

UNCERTAIN

Fall down – take it on the chin
get back up again.

Uncertain, that’s how we came to be
that’s how you came to me.
Uncertain, I’m calling out your name
from somewhere far away.

Let down your hair
it's flying in the wind.
I’m all around you
faithful as a man.

This Life – it kicked us in the ass
come on let’s kick it back.

First step – I’m holding out my hand
faithful as a man.
