"Home Again" as written by and Geoffery Wayne Tate Damon Johnson....
It's harder than I thought,
To be so far away.
So I thought I'd write this letter to you and explain.
For me it wasn't easy to raise the flag and leave.
But I thought that you should know how
Much you mean to me.

I won't be there to see you dance and hear
You sing the songs we love.
So please be strong and it won't be long till
I'm home again.

You know you make me proud
Because you're the one that I depend upon.
And when I return, I promise,
I'll never leave you alone again.
It's harder than I thought and you're so far away.
So I thought I'd write this letter to you and explain.
It was only a moment.

I turned my head to wipe my eyes and
When I looked again I saw your smile that
Said goodbye.

Mama says don't worry
Because Daddy's brave and he's coming
Home. But if I could change one thing,
I'd never let you go.

I want you here to see me dance and sing
Along to the songs we love.
So I'll be strong. It won't be long till you're
Home again with me.

When it feels too much to take,
I want you to know that I'm thinking about
You, making plans for when I'm home.
Why aren't you here?

I wake up every night.
I check the front porch light,
Making sure it's shining bright.
And I'll be there to shine the light
So you can find your way to me.
I'm feeling strong, but don't take too long.
Please come home to me.
I'll be there to see you dance and hear you
Sing the songs I love.

It won't be long.
It won't be long till I'm home again!
Why aren't you here?
I'm coming home!

    Song MeaningThere is lot of emotion attached to this song. The whole idea of separation between loved ones is one of my favorite topics, perhaps because I live and breathe it being away from my kids and my wife quite a bit while touring. You miss them so much, and it’s like you live two separate lives. When you’re a soldier and you’re away, it’s very difficult to bridge those two worlds. The song is inspired by a soldier writing a letter to his daughter who he misses very much, and her writing a letter back to him. He was laughing that what was really cute to him was that they were saying the same thing in the letter and using the same terminology. Those kind of coincidences really get to me. Because it was a father-daughter relationship, I asked my daughter Emily, she’s 10, to sing with me. That was really fun, I’d never done that with one of my kids before. It’s one of the toughest songs to sing for me on the record, it’s in a low key, but she did a good job with it. As per Geoff Tate on queensryche.com
