You built this house
Built it stone by stone
Hammer in your hand
You built this home
This house is strong
You raised it with your love
A shelter from the winds
From the cold and dark

Nobody has to cry
To make it seem real
Nobody has to hide
The way that they feel
If you'll stay right here
Tomorrow you'll be fine
I will be here for you
Standing by your side
So come home
Come home

You built those walls
To hide your fears inside
We were younger then
It's safe now to come outside
We built this home
On this little piece of land
The sky above is dark
No rain comes in

Nobody has to cry
To make it seem real
Nobody has to hide
The way that they feel
If you'll stay right here
Tomorrow you'll be fine
I will be here for you
Standing by your side
So come home
Come home

As the storm grows stronger deeper and wide
My face a winding river with no riverside
As the years grow longer I will be here by your side
Ashes to dust and storm by storm
Forever I will always be your love

Nobody has to cry
To make it seem real
Nobody has to hide
The way that they feel
If you'll stay right here
Tomorrow you'll be fine
I will be here for you
Standing by your side
So come home
Come home

    This actually reminds me sometimes of my past, it's a beautiful song and i can't get enough of listening this. Everyone has a different perspective on what it means, still no-one can deny that this is a great and emotional song. Props to you ryan.
