Here is a new #YouTube16s verse from a collab with my German counterpart Devize. Devize sent the track to me with an open verse and I was really feeling the concept. I completed the verse in about two days and Devize finished the song.

I wrote my verse from the perspective of a military child who never gets the chance to socialize and build relationships due to being on the move all the time.

Lyrics Below:

[Devize]
Little boy, six years old
A little to used to being home alone
Another new Mom and Dad, another school
Another house that'll never be home

When people ask him how he likes this place
He looks up and says with a smile up on his face

[Chorus: Devize]
This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passing through
This is just a stop on a way to where we going
I'm not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home

[Praverb]
See whites walls, full of puncture marks
Picture frame hangs, until the thunder starts
Shattered memories, lot of lost moments
Lack of faith, even with the cross showing//
New week, new house, new welcome mat
Unopened boxes, it felt like we never packed
Try to settle down, start life over again
Mo' money, mo' problems, been to hell and back//
Just a young kid, with a heart of hope
Different door frames are used, to chart the growth
Winter time, snuggled up, without a starter coat
In school, with fools, bringing home a smarter note//
Tired of U-Haul trucks and the Mayflower
Played outside, picking some may flowers
In a temporary home, where the day hours
Feel like years and my peers just disappear//

[Chorus: Devize]
This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passing through
This is just a stop, on a way to where we going
I'm not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home

[Devize]
Old man, hospital bed
The room is filled with people he loves
And he whispers don't cry for me
I'll see you all someday

He looks up and says
I can see gods face

[Chorus: Devize]
This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passing through
This is just a stop, on a way to where we going
I'm not afraid because I know
This is my temporary home
