4 years later. (2010).

"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."

I stopped singing and leaned my guitar against my stomach.

"thanks for watching youtubers! You support means the world! I love you all! And will be updateing a new song really soon! Stay beautiful."

I shut off the recorder. I hve YouTube channel now; with 681 faithful subscribers! I know..that's a lot of people, but it's really neat that I have that many people wanting to hear me sing!

"Beth! Dinner!"

"just a second!" and I quickly hit the upload button, and headed down to the kitchen for dinner. BBQed steak with salad..and noodles. Yum, one of my favorites. Why is he sucking up?

Then uncle Luke spoke up.

"I need to tell you something."

I nodded.
