"Darling Be Home Soon" as written by and John B. Sebastian....
Come
And talk of all the things we did today
Here
And laugh about our funny little ways
While we have a few minutes to breathe
Then I know that it's time you must leave

But, darling, be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling, be home soon
It's not just these few hours, but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

And now
A quarter of my life is almost past
I think I've come to see myself at last
And I see that the time spent confused
Was the time that I spent without you
And I feel myself in bloom

So, darling, be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling, be home soon
It's not just these few hours, but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

So, darling
My darling, be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling, be home soon
It's not just these few hours, but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Go
And beat your crazy head against the sky
Try
And see beyond the houses and your eyes
It's okay to shoot the moon

Darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling, be home soon
It's not just these few hours, but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

    General CommentThis song reminds me of when I'm home from work and my husband comes walking through the door. I'm (usually) so happy to see him... to talk... to reconnect with each other. In our busy lives, we only have so much time for each other, so those little moments mean a lot. The song, I believe, also examines how wonderful it is to finally find someone to connect with:

    "And I see that the time spent confused,
    Was the time that I spent without you,"

    We feel so empty until we finally find that one special person we can be ourselves with.

    General CommentThis is probably one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard. My favorite is the version John Sebastian sang at Woodstock, but I also love the Spoonful's studio version. And seek out Mama Cass's version -- it's spectacular.

    It strikes me that it's far too rare to find a love song where the praise is being directed at something other than the loved one's physical attractiveness. I love that he's looking forward to the conversation he'll have with her when she gets home.
