Carrie Underwood – Temporary Home lyrics

Little boy, six years old
A little too used to being 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 and rooms that I'm passing 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


Mmmmm

A young mom on her own
She needs a little help, got no where to go
She's looking for a job, looking 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 our place here in this world

This is our temporary home
It's not where we belong
Windows and rooms that we're passing 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 and rooms that I'm passing 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

Mmmmm

This is our temporary home

    This song is so inspirational. :) I am crying right now. :( it's too good and my saddest part is the old man in the hospital bed part. And sorry to all you guys who lost someone special in your life. Don't worry, if you need someone to talk to you can talk to me. And I have also lost someone special in my life. (my great grandpa.) he was 103 yrs old.

    This song never fails to make me cry. When my boyfriend broke up with me I felt like the world was ending. I know that sounds dramatic but at the time it kinda felt like that. And listening to this song gave me comfort because in the end earth is your temporary home and my real home is in heaven with jesus. And even if things are bad now, they will all be right one day in heaven.

    This song only makes our faith stronger. To be very patient until Jesus will come and take us to his home which is heaven. The world we are living in right is just temporary and sooner God will take us back home :) It never fails to make me think of the moment my great grandfather died. I was just a kid back then. I cannot stop crying because we were at the same exact scenario just like the song. I feel blessed whenever I think of this song. It's been going through my mind for like days already. I miss my grandpa so much because he was the one who raised me together with my grandma who is still alive.

    I believe that this song is trying to say many things but the most important is that we travel through many places and situations in our lives but every stop we make makes us wiser and more capable of coping with our lives and helps us to move on to a better place waiting for us in our future. There is no limit to who you can become no matter where you started. Never give up.
