"Come Home Soon" as written by and John/osborn Shanks....
I put away the groceries
And I take my daily bread
I dream of your arms around me
As I tuck the kids in bed

I don't know what you're doing
And I don't know where you are
But I look up at that great big sky
And I hope you're wishing on that same bright star

I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard living here ON MY OWN
So please come home soon
Come home soon

I know that we're together
Even though we're far apart
And I'll wear our lucky penny
Round my neck pressed to my heart

I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
And it's so hard living here ON MY OWN
So please come home soon
Come home soon

I still imagine your touch
It's beautiful missing something that much
But sometimes love needs a fighting chance
So I'll wait my turn until it's our turn to dance

I wonder, I pray
I sleep alone
I cry alone
Without you this house is not a home
So please come home (soon)

I walk alone
I try alone
I'll wait for you
Don't want to die alone

So please come home soon
Come home soon
Please come home soon

    General CommentHaving a husband in the military that is deployeed right now is hard for me and the two boys we share. All the songs like Letters from home and American soldier all come from the soldiers point of view. Come home soon speaks from the hearts of and for those who are left behind......for now

    General CommentMy hubby is in the military also, and this song makes me cry everytime without fail. It just really touches my heart. It's like I could have written the words myself, because they're how I feel.

    General CommentThe girls are talking about having a husband or family member in the service. And all the times spent away from them makes you wonder, and you pray for their safe return. It is talking about loving that person so much and not wanting to loose them to the war. ANd about being alone without their presence to be at your side. And hope everyday you must cope and wait till they return safely to your side. Basically the words of the song say it all "COME HOME SOON!

    General Commentwith my dad, step dad, and boyfriend all being marines, i have grown up all around the military life. it is quite hard and sometimes very uupsetting. my step dad is currently deployed in iraq, and my boyfriend leaves in february. I am very close with my dad, and as well my boyfriend, it is very hard for me. When i heard this song, i started crying, with the military life i live in its obvious that this song is from the people 'left behind' point of view. its a beautiful song. and it gives me goosebumps everytime i hear it.. its lovely.

    General Commentwith my boyfriend in the marines it's hard to listen to this song without crying, and wondering when he'll be back with me. it's a beautiful song about the heartache the people at home feel for their guys and girls in the armed forces. i'm so proud of him, but missing and worrying about him is with me every moment of everyday, and it's not easy. this song is for all the beloved of the armed forces...
