I'm coming home tomorrow, my work here's almost done
Now all I have is sorrow for in time, we all go up in smoke

I'm coming home tomorrow, I've given back my gun
For all I own is borrowed and in time, we all go up in smoke
We all go up in smoke

Silently as my tears flow, this fear keeps on burning
As I sleep and the winds blow, to you I'm returning

I'm coming home tomorrow, I'll never meet my son
I am a local hero, but in time, we all go up in smoke

Silently as my tears flow, my soul keeps on yearning
As I sleep and the winds blow, this world keeps on turning

I'm coming home tomorrow, my work here is all done
Now all I have is sorrow for in time, we all go up in smoke
We all go up in smoke

    General CommentThis is just a beautiful song that just screams with feeling and warmth. I think it's about a soldier that's about to come home and different feelings that come with it like when he's here "I've given back my gun" and the dying part with "I'll never meet my son" but overall just a very, very beautiful and well written song. just incredible!

    Silently as my tears flow, this fear keeps on burning
    As I sleep and the winds blow, to you I'm returning

    I'm coming home tomorrow, I'll never meet my son
    I am a local hero, but in time, we all go up in smoke

    Silently as my tears flow, my soul keeps on yearning
    As I sleep and the winds blow, this world keeps on turning
