Miranda Lambert - The House That Built Me

Every time I hear this song I cry for several reasons.

My parents are in the process of selling their house... the house I grew up in and I'm not close with my family anymore (haven't been for years, I'm the black sheep) and I'll never see the place again. Where ever I go to see my parents won't be "home" anymore. I won't be able to look at the place where I practiced piano for hours and hours. Or see my old bedroom that I snuck out of each night for years when I was a teenager to go off to the lake with my best friend. And I feel like I've lost myself since I left that house 4 years ago. 

"You leave home, you move on and you do the best you can. I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am." Sounds like me alright...
