  • It's two kids flying down the hall in our bedroom
    It's a breaking board on the front porch, you swear you're gonna fix it soon
    It's the kitchen table where we say our prays, give a little thanks to the man upstairs
    It's the feeling I get baby when I look at you

    It ain't always pretty as a picture, yeah
    And it ain't a mansion on a hill
    It's perfectly imperfect
    It's worth more than it's worth
    It's our life, it's our heart, it's our home
    This is our kingdom

    It's been late nights, a few good fights
    Wouldn't sleep until we worked things out
    It's been long days of leanin' on faith
    Even when we had our doubts
    Barely gettin' by, stretched to the limits
    All the hard times, no, I wouldn't trade a minute
    We've come so far, it made us who we are
    Right here, right now

    It ain't always pretty as a picture, yeah
    And it ain't a mansion on a hill
    It's perfectly imperfect
    It's worth more than it's worth
    It's our life, it's our heart, it's our home
    And this is our kingdom
    This is our, this is our, this is our kingdom
    Oh, yeah, this is our kingdom

    No, it ain't always pretty as a picture, yeah
    And it ain't a mansion on a hill
    It's perfectly imperfect
    It's worth more than it's worth
    It's our life, it's our heart, it's our home
    This is our kingdom
    Oh, yeah
    This is our, this is our kingdom
    This is our kingdom

    It's our names craved out on that old, old tree
    Pictures on the wall of you and me
    It's our heart, it's our home, it's our babies faces
    It's the light, it's the love living in these places
    Church on Sunday, tyre swings
    Good and the bad times
    Praying on our knees
    Thanking the lord for this beautiful life
    The love we have built will stand the test of time, yeah

    Oh, this is our kingdom
    This is our kingdom, yeah
    This is our kingdom
    It's pictures on the wall of you and me
    Thanking the lord, praying on our knees
    In our kingdom Writer/s: Carrie Underwood, Chris DeStefano, Dave Barnes
