Coming Home
William J. Hall - begun January 3, 2004 - (completed 12/10/09)

  1 All this time
  2 I thought I finally had you
  3 Figured out.
  4 Slipped my mind
  5 Those little things that you
  6 Are all about -
  7 Midnight talks
  8 And rainy walks
  9 And cold November moons.
  10 I'm sorry I
  11 Have made you cry -
  12 I'll be back home soon.
 
  13 I never meant to
  14 Be cavalier or careless
  15 With your heart.
  16 This all we've been through
  17 And all the miles that keep us
  18 Far apart -
  19 And sometimes
  20 On the telephone line
  21 I just don't know what to do.
  22 You know that I
  23 Never meant to lie,
  24 But I'll be back home soon.
 
  25 Your birthday - that I missed -
  26 And I was gone for Christmas -
  27 New Year came and left, it's true;
  28 And no matter what I wish
  29 I'm proud - and it's like this:
  30 I've got this job to do -
  31 And I'll be home.
 
  32 Take my word - (alt: For what it's worth)
  33 Some days I've been so down
  34 That I could die.
  35 If it was my bird
  36 I'd turn this C-5 'round
  37 And I would fly
  38 Back there to -
  39 What I want to do -
  40 Take away your midnight blues;
  41 But, honey, I'm alive
  42 So please don't cry -
  43 I'll be back home soon.
