Writing songs is easy. Making them unique and worthwhile is the real challenge. To Build A Home is a simple song, but it’s made with ingredients most ballads these days lack- sincerity, talent and soul. Turn off the lights. With the right atmosphere this song will make your heart soar:

To Build A Home

Video

Lyrics

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills…
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust…
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home…

And I built a home
For you
For me

Until you disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust…

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed its knees

By the cracks of his skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
Held on as tightly as you held onto me
Held on as tightly as you held onto me…

And, I built a home
For you
For me

Until you disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust…
