House Of Their Dreams
[Intro]
D    D/G

[Verse 1]
D
  A corner office was his dream
                           G2
More like a prison now it seems
Somewhere on the corporate climb
                      D
He left his warrior behind.
Now he's just a worker at a daily grind,
                                G2
Steals his years and numbs his mind.
His strength is fading, his dreams are blind
Em7                         D
This is not the life he had in mind.

[Interlude]
D      D/G

[Verse 2]
D
  She lies awake as he's up at night
                                      G2
Staring at his screen that tells him lies
That the grass is greener on the other side
        D
So she's at the gym fighting off the years
To be young again and calm her fears
          G2
That she'll never be enough for him
       Em7                      D
Just as a young man catches her eye.

[Chorus 1]
                             G2                    D
Now they're trapped in their own worlds and their own wars
            Asus                Bm7
With their cell phones and the closed doors
      G2                  D                Bm7
It's funny how quiet and peaceful that it seems.
            G2                 Em7
But they're all alone together
                D             D/G
In the house of their dreams.

[Verse 3]
                      D
Little sister, she's a sixteen-year-old princess
Lost somewhere between the swing set
       G2
And her brand new crush's chariot awaits
          D
And big brother's rooms glowing with trophies that shout his name
                                    G2
But he'd trade all his high school fame
                                   Em7
For some backyard catch with his hero again

[Chorus 2]
                             G2                    D
Now they're trapped in their own worlds and their own wars
            Asus                Bm7
With their cell phones and the closed doors
      G2                  D                Bm7
It's funny how quiet and peaceful that it seems.
            G2                 Em7
But they're all alone together
                D             D/G
In the house of their dreams.

[Verse 4]
                D
So now they're all dressed up in Sunday best
Sit up straight just like the rest
         G2                                                   D
And they sing the songs of peace and rest that Jesus freely gives
D
And then their kids look up as daddy stands
And he takes his bride with trembling hands
G2
  Brother kneels at his father's side as princess looks in her mother's eyes
       D/G                F#m7            Em7
Their tears tear down the walls as daddy prays

[Chorus 3]
                     G2                  D
We're trapped in our own worlds and our own wars
         Asus                 Bm7
With our cell phones and our closed doors
      G2           D          Bm7
God, only You can save our family
    G2
And on this Rock, we'll build
D/F#                 Em7
On this Rock, we'll build
                    D        D/G
The house of our dreams

About the artist behind House Of Their Dreams:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
