Temporary Home
Carrie Underwood Lyrics

Little boy, six years old
A little too used to bein' alone
Another new mom and dad, another school
Another house that'll never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face

"This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows in rooms that I'm passin' through
This is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know this is my
Temporary home."

Young mom on her own
She needs a little help got nowhere to go
She's lookin' for a job, lookin' for a way out
'Cause a half-way house will never be a home
At night she whispers to her baby girl
Someday we'll find a place here in this world

"This is our temporary home
It's not where we belong
Windows in rooms that we're passin' through
This is just a stop, on the way to where we're going
I'm not afraid because I know this is our
Temporary Home."

Old man, hospital bed
The room is filled with people he loves
And he whispers don't cry for me
I'll see you all someday
He looks up and says "I can see God's face"

"This is my temporary Home
It's not where I belong
Windows in rooms that I'm passin' through
This was just a stop, on the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know this was
My temporary home."

This is our temporary home

God this Song, makes me cry every Time,

My dad passed cause of Cancer around august of last year, He had been Fighting it for around 8 Years, and i grew up watching him Slowly get Further and Further from us, his Personality started to shift and he became Demanding, Cold, and Selfish, My Mom Started to spiral downward from there, My Family, Speciously the Female Side, Has had a LONG history with Depression, and anxiety, and my mom just got worse and worse, she would snap at me, and my little sister almost every Day, hell, i even counted the days she would be in a Good Mood, she is a Painter that works at home, and was struggling Badly to keep a roof over out heads, i wont ever take for granted the sacrifices that women made for me and my little sister,

after a long time my Depression kicked in and i started to spiral too, having thoughts like " i cant tell them how i feel, there already going threw so much, i cant Make it worse, ill just be a burden" so i held it in, and it wasn't long before i started acting up, Getting into Fights with my dad,

Then, around august, he didn't wake up, and when he did he was Groggy, and couldn't move a lot, we knew he was Going, we just didn't think it would be then, we waited for a few days, and one morning, i woke up to my mom Crying and she just says to me " its Over, hes Gone" And i just spent that day Numb, not able to tell weather i was sad he was gone, or releaved it was all Over,

the 3 story's in this song just resonate with me so Deeply,

the 1st one is me and my sister, she was DEEP into depression and i couldn't help her, She was just Broken by then, she is better now, but i have a good feeling that she even wanted to self harm or Kill herself for a while,

2nt is for my mamma, who risked EVERYTHING so we could be happy, she tried to hide her feelings from us cause, we were only kids, but she couldn't, she is a Damn Strong Women,

and finally, My Dad Who had been with us for as long as i could remember, was Gone, and honestly, at least he is not in pain anymore,

Carrie, Thank you for making this song, and thank you for helping me threw a time in my life where i was Slowly Going insane,

Just one more hug
Just a little bit longer to say goodbye
Just an little bit more time to get to know more about them
Just a little bit more time to help them
Just one more day to tell them you care
Just one more time to see their smiling face
I know you had to go
I know you weren’t ok
It’s ok, I understand why you left this world

When I first heard this song, it made me think of my mom and I. I've had a rough childhood. We moved over 10 different places in 9 years. At the age of 11, my life flipped. Things went horrible for my mom and I. Helpless, I felt like a failure because I couldn't help my mom. At the age of 13-15 I had to be an adult, help my mom find a job and do everything. At 16 I got my job, most of my income goes to bills. I'm now 19 on my way to 20, about to enter college. The only reason I have my head up high is because I want to have kids and give them the world that I didn't see. Things are still rough, but I pray as much as I can. I know that all this pain is worth it at the end.


Well you are 27 now...how's life now?

legends neverdie

Omg. Same. Same reasons why I still keep on going. I feel like its my only way of healing. When I say my own children have the life that I didn’t get to have. But it’s just not getting any easier these days. I feel like giving up.😭

I know exactly how it feels to be in your position I’m currently in the same situation but I can only keep my head up and keep on going no matter how much I don’t want to I do anyway I’m just looking at the positive side every day


From me ( a Dad of 2 amazing girls ) to you ( a daughter )....I am proud of you.
You have the world at your feet.
