This House Is Not A Home

by B Hickerson



This song was recorded in Nashville in 2010 at John Denny's studio (Denny's Den). We recorded the guitar and vocal and later instruments were added by John Reese. It was written in the late 90's when a certain person was out of town. My wife Lanada recorded with John in the 90's when she and her sister Trena had a group called TLC (Trena and Lanada Cassidy).


This house is not a home
it's just a place to stay
without you here
nothin in my life is quite the same
it's lonely without you
I long to hear you say "I love you"
babe I love you
This house is not a home
without you here it's just a place to say

but in your arms - it doesn't matter where we are
it feels like home where ever we are together
safe and warm
you lying tenderly besides me
I close my eyes and try to imagine that you're here
that you're near

repeat bridge

This house is not a home
I need much more than
2x4's and stone
I need the one that I love
to make my life complete
I need you living life
right here beside me
because a house is not a home
without you

I wrote the song and played acoustic and sang. John Reese added keyboards and other instruments and brought in session guys - sorry don't have those names.
