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

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

Now they're trapped in their own worlds, in their own wars
With their cell phones and the closed doors
It's funny how quiet and peaceful that it seems But they're all alone together
In the house of their dreams
 Little sister, she's a sixteen-year-old princess Lost somewhere between the swing set
And her brand new crush's chariot awaits
And big brother's rooms glowing with trophies that shout his name
But he'd trade all his high school fame
For some backyard catch with his hero again 
But they're trapped in their own worlds, in their own wars
With their cell phones and the closed doors
It's funny how quiet and peaceful that it seems But they're all alone together
In the house of their dreams

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

We're trapped in our own worlds and our own wars
With our cell phones and our closed doors
God, only You can save our family And on this Rock, we'll build On this Rock, we'll build The house of our dreams
