"Next Year" as written by Nate Mendel, Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins....
I'm in the sky tonight
There I can keep by your side
Watching the wide world riot
And hiding out
I'll be coming home next year

Into the sun we climb
Climbing our wings will burn white
Everyone strapped in tight
We'll ride it out
I'll be coming home next year

Come on, get on, get on
Take it till life runs out
No-one can find us now
Living with our heads underground

Into the night we shine
Lighting the way we glide by
Catch me if I get too high
When I come down
I'll be coming home next year

I'm in the sky tonight
There I can keep by your side
Watching the whole world wind
Around and round
I'll be coming home next year

Come on, get on, get on
Take it till I fall down
No one can find us now
Living with our heads underground

I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
Everything's all right up here
When I come down
I'll be coming home next year

Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
Everything's all right up here
When I come down
I'll be coming home next year

    General CommentThis song used to be the theme song to the show 'Ed' on NBC. I really loved it as the theme, until this season when they switched to whatever shitty song they use now. Copyright issues, apparently, but still...I love this song.

    General CommentYou need to see the video to truly aprreciate this song. I think its about the use of the space race to cloud the events that were shaking America at the time, namely Vietnam. "Living with our heads underground" - ignoring what's really important. The video mixes tranquil scene's from space and the astronauts having a fun time with scenes of Vietnam, anti war rallies, explosions. Showing that everything may be fine and calm in space but down on earth things aren't as tranquil.

    General CommentTo me it means a lot, my fiance is a U.S. Marine and is on the Presidential Helicopter Squadron and flies quite a bit. I know he is just a portion of all that is guarding our country, but yet he is too. Therefore, it means a lot when it says "Then I can keep by your side". Another part is "coming home next year" because he very seldom gets to come home. I know this is not what the song means, about a Marine and his fiance, but that's what it means to me. I love you Howeman!

    General CommentI love this song it is one of my favorites but I just want to know, Does anybody else out there believe that on the TINLTL cd they sort of mess up the song a little when they repeat it again at the end?
    It is still a great song though.

    General CommentThe lyrics posted are wrong
    This is from the foo fighters official site:
    I'm in the sky tonight,
    There I can keep by your side
    Watching the wide world riot and hiding out
    I'll be coming home next year
    Into the sun we climb
    Climbing our wings will burn white
    Everyone strapped in tight
    We'll ride it out
    I'll be coming home next year
    Come on get on get on
    Take it till life runs out
    No one can find us now,
    Living with our heads underground
    Into the night we shine
    Lighting the way we glide by
    Catch me if I get too high
    When I come down
    I'll be coming home next year
    I'm in the sky tonight
    There I can keep by your side
    Watching the whole world wind around and round
    I'll be coming home next year
    I'll be coming home next year
    Everything's alright up here
    When I come down
    I'll be coming home next year
    Say good-bye

    General CommentThis was a perfect coming home song for me a while ago when I went to Australia to study for a year. It fit so well as i was playing it on the airplane, flying over the wide Pacific ocean for 17 hours.
