Casting Crowns – House Of Their Dreams Lyrics

A corner office was his dream
More like a prison now it seems1
Somewhere on the corporate climb
He left his warrior behind2
Now hes just a worker at a daily grind
Steals his years and numbs his mind3
His strength is fading, his dreams are blind
This is not the life he had in mind4

She lies awake cause hes up all night
Staring at a screen that tells him lies5
That the grass is greener on the other side6
So shes at the gym fighting off the years
To be young again and calm her fears7
That she’ll never be enough for him
Just as a young man catches her eye8

Now they’re trapped in their own worlds, in their own wars
With their cell phones and the closed doors9
Its funny how quiet and peaceful that it seems10
But they’re all alone together
In the house of their dreams11

Little sister, shes a sixteen-year-old princess
Lost somewhere between the swing set
And her brand new crush’s chariot awaits12
And big brothers rooms glowing with trophies that shout his name
But he’d trade all his high school fame
For some backyard catch with his hero again13

So now they’re all dressed up in Sunday best
Sit up straight just like the rest
And they sing the songs of peace and rest that Jesus freely gives14
And then their kids look up as daddy stands
And he takes his bride with trembling hands
Brother kneels at his fathers side as princess looks in the mothers eyes
Their tears tear down the walls as daddy prays15

We’re trapped in our own worlds and our own wars
With our cell phones and our closed doors16
God, only You can save our family
And on this Rock, we’ll build
On this Rock, we’ll build
The house of our dreams17
