Lyric "The House That Built Me"

I know they say you can't go home again
I just had to come back one last time
Ma'am, I know you don't know me from Adam
But these hand prints on the front steps are mine

 

Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar
And I bet you didn't know under that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

 

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it's like I'm someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself

 

If I could just come in, I swear I'll leave
Won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

 

Mama cut out pictures of houses for years
From "Better Homes and Garden" magazine
Plans were drawn and concrete poured
And nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to mama's dream

 

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it's like I'm someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself

 

If I could just come in, I swear I'll leave
Won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

 

You leave home, you move on
And you do the best you can
I got lost in this whole world
And forgot who I am

 

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it's like I'm someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself

 

If I could walk around, I swear I'll leave
Won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me
