House Of Pain Lyrics

It's a little past supper time
I'm still out on the porch steps
Sittin on my behind, waiting for you
Wondering if everything is all right
Momma said come in boy don't waste your time
I said I've got time will he be here soon
Five years old and talkin to myself
Where were you? Where'd ya go?
Daddy can't you tell?
I'm not tryin to fake it
And I ain't the one to blame
No there's no one home
In my house of pain
And I didn't write these pages and
My scripts been rearranged
No there's no one home
In my house of pain
No There's no one home
In my house of pain.

Wasn't I worth the time
A boy needs a daddy like a dance to mime
And all the time, I looked up to you
I paced my room a million times
And all I ever got was one big lie
The same old lie
How could you?

Well I was eighteen and still talking to myself
Where were you? Where'd you go?
Daddy can't ya tell?
I'm not tryin to fake it
And I ain't the one to blame
No there's no one home
In my house of pain
I didn't write these pages
And my script's been rearranged
No there's no one home
In my house of pain
No there's no one home
In my house of pain

I'm not tryin to fake it
And I ain't the one to blame
No there's no one home
In my house of pain
I didn't write these pages
And my script's been rearranged
No there's no one home
In my house of pain
no there's no one home
In my house of pain
(I'm alone again)
No there's no one home in my house of pain (x2)
(I'm alone again)
If I learned anything from this
It's how to live on my own!

This is my song. My dad split when I was 5. I saw him less than 10 times since then. I am nearly 40 now. I hold no judgement. I only want to show him how I turned out. My older brother died of cancer, not even sure he knows. I have traveled the world helping people and teaching. I forgive my dad. To all other fathers that feel you have messed up. There is forgiveness. I pray you can once again embrace your son or daughter. I would give anything to have my dad hug me again.

To my son and daughter: I'm sorry. I tried to fix things I did wrong, but it was far too little and too late. Just know it wasn't because of you. I love you with all my heart and I would trade everything I have to undo the hurt I caused.

Im 17. My dad past away last year, and was deprived from me for a few years before that. I remember him singing this to me and telling me that he would give anything to take away the pain he had put on me in the past years. Now I ride around in my truck and crank this song up and drive looking to find myself and feel like im with my million-mile dad again. I miss him like crazy, and I wish I could hear his hello. To all you out there who feel similar or just feel down about the way things might be for ya, take it easy. You have something out there. Even if you feel like such a big piece has been missing, remember you still have a life to live, and one day youll have a family of your own. Live for them. You know whats the wrong thing to do, which means youll know how to do it maybe a little better. Forgive your fathers, and tell him you love him. You never know when you might see him for the last time.

This is so sad! I listen & my heart is torn for myself, as a fatherless child, but my soul is shattered for my own son! I know the pain. And on either side of the fence, it hurts .@jimmyh: my prayers

When I first heard this song, it touched my to my core. My father, (I call him "the sperm donor"...), left us, a single mother with twin boys, when we were 2 years old. I hadn't heard from him for 40 years, not until his death, when his other family, the woman he left us for and their adult children attempted to contact us, saying he always loved us... What an insult, I do not consider them family, and for them to wait until his death to contact us, unforgivable!

I grew up without my father. Parents divorced before I can remember. I did get to see him now and then, thanks to my Grandpa, but he lived out of state. He died when I was 12 or 13. This song is right there. Chokes me up when I watch video. ICONIC!

I was in high school when I first heard and love this song.. now that I become a father of 2, I'm hoping that the situation, message of the song, will not happen to my kids.

My meaning isn't about divorce it's about the pain I've carried in my heart since my mother committed suicide when I was 16 and I'm now 53! Also, The severe, chronic back PAIN I've had to deal with since I had failed back surgery in 2004! There are all kinds of pain that people have to cope with on a daily basis! But in so many other ways God has truly blessed me!

The writer of this song was dealing with some pain himself I think. Like some of the other posts, I tear up every time I hear it. A deep meaning to a lot of people. great song.
