"The House That Built Me"

[Verse 1]
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 handprints on the front steps are mine
Up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
Is where they did their homework and learned to play guitar
And I bet you didn't know underneath that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
I cut out pictures of houses for years
From Better Homes and Garden magazines
Plans were drawn and concrete poured
Nail by nail and board by board
But once the kids were grown, it was just too much for me

[Chorus]
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 again
If I could just come in, I swear I'll leave
I won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

[Bridge]
They leave home, they move on, and you do the best you can
I got lost in this ol' world and forgot who I am

[Chorus]
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
Ma'am, if I could walk around, I swear I'll leave
Won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me
