Temporary Home Carrie Underwood Words and music by Carrie Underwood, Luke Laird, and Zac Maloy

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

Young mom on her own She needs a little help, got nowhere to go She s looking for a job, looking for a way out Cause a halfway 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 my 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 is just a stop on the way to where I m going I m not afraid because I know this was my temporary home
