PostSubject: The House That Built Me by Miranda Lambert   Sun Jun 06, 2010 10:20 am

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

Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
Is where I did my homework and learned to play guitar
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 nuthin' but a memory
From the house that built me

Mama cut out pictures of houses for years
From Better Homes and Gardens magazine
Plans were drawn and concrete poured
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 nuthin' but a memory
From the house that built me

You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old 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 walk around I swear I'll leave
Won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

I always cry when I hear this song. It reminds me of my other house, where I got my cat Thumper, Missy, Whisky, and Clarence. We had our two dogs that died there, Lucky and Roo-roo. I my best friend Nicki (boy) moved away there, too.
