Beth I hear you calling
But I can't come home right now
Me and the boys are playing
And we just can't find the sound

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do

You say you feel so empty
That our house just ain't our home
I'm always somewhere else
And you're always there alone

Just a few more hours
And I'll be right home to you
I think I hear them calling
Oh Beth what can I do
Beth what can I do

Beth I know you're lonely
And I hope you'll be alright
'Cause me and the boys will be playing all night

    General CommentThis interpretation makes the most sense to me. In an imaginary music video I see most of the song occurring with images of a studio and the band in the background, busying over a piece of music (representing what he's telling her). He hangs up (a differently colored phone) before the last verse, and for the last lines he's shown using the phone in a dimly lit kitchen. In the background instead can be seen light coming from a bedroom door.

    The reason I favor this over the surface words is that change at the end. He knows he won't be home soon and doesn't want to tell her that. If it were just the band he wouldn't feel the same level of guilt that is making him try to hide the timing.
