Well, Mom found her a new place to live
And Dad found him a new girlfriend
Looks like every- body's moving on
And it's, "Hey, look on the bright side kid,
Now you've got two Christmases
And it's every other weekend from now on"
Yeah, but all I want is the way it was
When love would always last forever
And families stayed together

Back to the day before two houses
When they held my hands when I was little
Before I got caught in the middle
Somewhere in between two houses

'Cause these two houses sure don't feel like home
Wide-eyed wonder grows up fast
Trust is shot and nothing lasts
And I'm thinking maybe it was all my fault
And will I ever get back to
The innocence that I once knew
Before that Summer turned into Fall
When I close my eyes, I go back in time

I heard about a love that never leaves
So I'm asking you to show me
I'm talking to You down here on my knees
Feels like You've always known me

When love would always last for- ever
And families stayed together
Back to the day before two houses
You were holding my hand when I was little
You were there when I was in the middle
Somewhere in between two houses
These two houses
These two houses
But tonight my heart has finally found a home
