Well that's alright
and that's alright
2000 miles we stood
and that's alright

and that's alright
if that's alright
i'll see you in the morning
if that's alright

what would you do if i wrote you a song
would you give me some lovin when i get home
or would you be mad at me if i had a hard time
gettin a hold of you
you know i try all the time

and i think that
you don't know anybody that could be
so bad
and if you did
you'd be wonderin where
I'm at
well i'll be home when tomorrow mornin comes

what would you do if i sang you this song
the connection is bad but that's only the phone
'cause when my words kiss your ear
i'll be right there
the message is long
but this is your song

and i think that
you don't know anybody that could be
so bad
but if you did
you'd be wonderin where
i'm at
well i'll be home when tomorrow mornin...

and that's alright
'cause i'll be home when tomorrow mornin...
and that's allllright
'cause i'll be home when tomorrow mornin comes.

    General Commentobviously, this song is about missing people that are far away, or just being homesick. Just read it.

    General CommentJack said in the Aol Sessions that the openings verse was a phone message left for his wife while he was on a surf trip to Reunion Island off the coast of South Africa. With the time difference, he couldn't get a hold of her so instead left that opening first which grew into Tomorrow Morning.
