Temporary Home Lyrics

Little boy, 6 years old
A little too used to bein' alone
Another new mom and dad,another school
Another house that'll never be home
When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile upon his face

"This is...

    its talking about how it doesn't matter what our home on earth is like, it will change because our true home is in heaven. our life on earth is just our "temporary home" and is just the beginning.

    I wrote this next song to my record and we also made this song into our great experience because me and Ben are moving to other apartment and be together and work together for project search. Because I want to work at my church and do music that’s where I wanted to work. Then I wanted to do singing career with my friend Ben and he’s in charge of microphones and recording and also he helps with the stage lighting and then my friend Hillary and Nicole helped me picked out outfits to wear, and perform with Ben and my church members, it’s so much fun.

    The songs meaning is that life will take you from place to place, but wherever it takes you, where you are is your temporary home, and you need to treasure where you are right now and always, because soon it will be gone. However, it also means that things aren’t always perfect, but your should stick to your core beliefs and no matter where you go, the things you love will be there.

    We are living in this world that no one will be remain forever. We are all stay here for just a few moment. To experience the of what was the real meaning of life. God given us a chance to be a good one. We use this chance to fulfill our dreams and to make our life valuable because this is our only chance. We live here temporaryly. If we waste our chance we end up nothing. This world is just our temporary home. So, make your life valuable and be a good one. Live your life with God and all will be alright.

    I think this song is about how no matter your religion, beliefs or no religion you won't stay on earth forever. Even if you believe there is nothing after death or if you believe there is heaven your forever home is not here...

    I think its about people who know that this is just a place where they live for now and they know they will have a better place in heaven soon.

    It doesn't matter what you have as a house or you are poor you just got to believe that you will always be loved and your parents are trying to find you a home to live in and it doesn't matter what people think of you if your not smart it doesn't matter what they think of you because you don't have a home so that's why when you see people on the street they are begging for money to buy a house for their children or child.

    i personally think that (as a christian about to get adopted) this song means that she is a christian looking forward to going to heaven.

    This song starts off with saying that this is all just a temporary home theres somewere better that we will all be together.
    the young boy is going from place to place and he realizes that life will get better and where he is is just temporary. he knows that he needs to stay happy because the good will come .
    the old man is saying that he is at the end of his life but he knows that better is yet to come and that he will be re-united with his family soon

    It's basically saying that this World is just our(Christians)temporary home. We're not promised tomorrow and no matter what you go through. Just keep in mind that all of this is temporary!

    This is for evey one who has felt that no one is there for them and for the people who are dying and they know that heaven is the end of their suffering and pain.The 6 year old boy has never felt loved because he bounced around alot and he knew there was somewhere better for him where he will be loved for sure and never left. the young mom wants a better life for her daughter and for her self and she knows that a halfway home isn't it but heaven is and the old man knows hes loved but that heaven is where he must be and his family will follow soon and they will be togeather then.

    this is about how here on earth isnt our real home that heaven is our true home. there mite be suffering on earth but "this is just a stop on the way to were we're going" that means earth is like a stop on the side of the road and we are still heading to our destination.
