Another new mom and dad, another school
                      FF chord
Another house that'll never be home
AmAm chord
When people ask him
GG chord                   FF chord
how he likes this place
         AmAm chord               GG chord                      FF chord
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face

This is my temporary home
                   GG chord
It's not where I belong
             AmAm chord        GG chord              FF chord
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through
                CC chord                             GG chord
This is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going

Young mom on her own
                              FF chord
She needs a little help got nowhere to go.
        CC chord
She's lookin' for a job, lookin' for a way out
                              FF chord
Because a half-way house will never be a home


   AmAm chord
At night she whispers
GG chord             FF chord
to her baby girl:
    AmAm chord
Someday we'll find a

place here in this world
