Country songstress Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me" is the emotional acoustic ballad off the 2010 album Revolution. It's a story of the song's protagonist returning to her childhood home, only to discover a new woman living there. The woman invites her inside, and as she walks around the house, the protagonist becomes nostalgic for all the things that she had suppressed from youth; the things she realizes at the end of the song are responsible for giving her strength and wisdom.
You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am
The song is simplistic and stripped down, and it allows us to feel the emotion and power behind Miranda's vocals.
++++++++++++++ LYRICS BELOW ++++++++++++++
I know they say you cant 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.
And up those stairs, in that little back bedroom
is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar.
And I bet you didn't know under that live oak
my favorite dog is buried in the yard.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its 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.

Mama cut out pictures of houses for years.
From 'Better Homes and Garden' magazines.
Plans were drawn, concrete poured,
and nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to mama's dream.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its 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.

You leave home, you move on and you do the best you can.
I got lost in this whole world and forgot who I am.

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
this brokenness inside me might start healing.
Out here its like I'm someone else,
I thought that maybe I could find myself.
If I could walk around I swear I'll leave.
Won't take nothing but a memory
from the house that built me.
