a home lyrics – dixie chicks

i mistook the warnings for wisdom
from so called friends quick to advise
though your touch was telling me otherwise
somehow i saw you as a weakness
i thought i had to be strong
oh but i was just young, i was scared, i was wrong

not a night goes by
i don’t dream of wandering
through the home that might have been
and i listened to my pride
when my heart cried out for you
now every day i wake again
in a house that might have been
a home

guess i did what i did believing
that love is a dangerous thing
oh but that couldn’t hurt anymore than never knowing

not a night goes by
i don’t dream of wandering
through the home that might have been
and i listened to my pride
when my heart cried out for you
now every day i wake again
in a house that might have been
a home
a home

four walls, a roof, a door, some windows
just a place to run when my working day is through
they say home is where the heart is
if the exception proves the rule i guess that’s true

not a night goes by
i don’t dream of wandering
through the home that might have been
and i listened to my pride
when my heart cried out for you
now every day i wake again
in a house that might have been
a home
a home
