"Home" as written by and Edward Joel Kowalczyk....
I'm a soldier on the field
Fighting for you, fighting for me
You can see it on our faces
Like the bullets leave traces
You can feel it for real

You can't imagine the pain of my baby so far away
So far from my home

When they comin' home?
When they leavin' that place?
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again
When they comin' home?

Oh shed some grace!
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again

I'm a soldier on the field
Waiting to die, praying to live
To survive one more day
But my hope begins to fray
It's my flesh against the steel

You'll never know what I've known
You'll never see what I've seen
I hope we make it home

When they comin' home?
When they leavin' that place?
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again
When they comin' home?

Oh shed some grace!
Put your peace in the valley tonight
Bring the soldier home alright
When they coming' home?

Oh, when they leavin' that place?
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again

So far from home
She cries, politics aside
What I'd give to have him here tonight

When they comin' home?
When they leavin' that place?
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again
When they comin' home?

Oh shed some grace!
Put your peace in the valley tonight
Bring the soldier home alright
When they coming' home?

Oh, children playing in the sun?
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again
When they comin' home?

Oh?
Put your peace in the valley tonight
Bring the soldier home alright
When they coming' home?

Oh, children playing in the sun?
To see their lovers face again
Kid will see his daddy's face again
When they comin' home?

Oh?
When they coming' home?

    General CommentYep, it's a homefront song, pure and simple, probably felt by everyone involved for as long as there's ever been warfare (with the possible exception of the Spartans and crazy "martyr" types.)

    General CommentI was not surprised to see Ed's angst over warfare surfacing in his lyrics once again. I attended a concert in Lake Havasu, Az during which he had all of us send our love to the troops in Iraq. Whether this angst stems from personal experience ( his friends sent into this war) or just the common frustration that many of us feel about this situtation is unclear. This song definately captures the frustration felt by the soilders and the people waiting at home. The lines "I'm a soldier on the field
    Waiting to die, praying to live", sends chills down my spine every time I hear it.
