Hace unas semanas iba en el carro con mis hijos, y pasamos frente a nuestra vieja casa, donde ellos habían crecido. Mi hijo me dijo que recordaba la casa por dentro, pero que sus memorias se empezaban a desdibujar, y me dijo que algún día volvería a la casa y le pediría a los nuevos dueños que lo dejen entrar para recordar. Hace unos días él mismo me enseñó ésta canción, y yo tambien empecé a recordar aquellos viejos tiempos.

The House That Built Me (La Casa que me Hizo a Mi) fue escrita por Tom Douglas y Allen Shamblin. La canción se la ofrecieron originalmente a al cantante de Country Blake Shelton, pero cuando su esposa, Miranda Lambert la oyó, le gustó tanto que insistió en que le permitieran a ella grabarla. Salió en Marzo del 2010, como el tercer sencillo de su album Revolution, y fue el sencillo más éxitoso de Miranda en su carrera.

Espero que la disfrutes.

¡Feliz Domingo!

THE HOUSE THAT BUILT ME

I know they say, you can’t go home again
Well, I just had to come back one last time
And Ma’am, I know, you don’t know me from Adam
But these hand prints on the front steps are mine

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 it’s 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” magazine
Plans were drawn and 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 it’s 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 it’s like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself

If I could walk around, I swear I’ll leave
Holding nothing but a memory
From the house that built me
