EDIT: A full review of Play On is right around the corner, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
The second single off of Carrie Underwood’s phenomenal 3rd album, Play On, is this stirring number titled “Temporary Home.” The song tells the story of 3 individuals, a foster-child, a single mom in a halfway house, and an old man on his death bed, who are experiencing hardship but realize that their current situation is only temporary, and that they will soon be on to something much, much better. Aside from the beautiful arrangement and vocals, the lyrics are exceptionally touching. In the final verse, Carrie sings “He looks up and says/I can see God’s face,” a lyric that’s so real it will surely shake some of the winter ice off of the hearts of many. The song is traditional country in sound, but Carrie takes a lot of chances with this one in that, while it’s similar in topic to the Paisley/Parton collaboration “When I Get Where I’m Going,” the lyrics are straight forward and very powerful. Listen to the full song below and see what you think.
