"When She Comes Home" as written by and John Mccauley....
The whole world is wrong today
But you've been gone so long
That I lost count of days
When you come home
I'm gonna tell you how I got along
I'm gonna tell you, gonna tell you
Everything I thought
Emptiness was bought with your plane ticket
Not so much as a kiss goodbye
I don't want to think of the reasons why
I don't wanna think of reasons why

Most things I wanna say
They will go unspoken always
But if you look a little closer in my eye
You will know everything there is to know
You're gonna know you're gonna know
Everything I thought
Overcome the sloth, got me a ride to New York
And not so much as a reason why
I just want a kiss, a kiss goodbye
I just want a kiss, a kiss goodbye

The whole world is wrong today
But you've been gone so long that I lost count of days
But when you come home
I'm gonna tell you how I got along
I'm gonna tell you, gonna tell you
Everything I thought
Emptiness was bought with your plane ticket
And not so much as a reason why
I just want a kiss, a kiss goodbye
I just want a kiss goodbye

    General CommentI think that this is the perfect mutual end of relationship song. The lines where she is gone with the purchase of her plane ticket mean that they don't really care to have a long distance relationship. They don't trust each other anymore.
    but he is willing to still try to make it work, ' I'm gonna tell you how I got along,'

    "Most things I wanna say
    They will go unspoken always
    But if you look a little closer in my eye
    You will know everything there is to know
    You're gonna know you're gonna know"

    It seems like he was un-faithful and feeling guilty about it, and he can't say it because he doesn't want to hurt her. They have such a deep relationship that she can just tell by looking him in the eye. The eyes don't lie. Love this song soo much! Although I see it as negative to a relationship being over, sometimes I do think of it as positive. Like the eyes could show all the emotions that he cant bring himself to say to her, like how much he missed her and loves her, maybe it was someone that he was in love with that he thought was too good for him and now he is trying to better himself for her, that would explain the 'sloth' and the ticket to New York.
