Put your clock back, for the Winter.
She asks when I'll be, home again.
If I could see those eyes,
I know they cut me down to size.
You're not here, when I need you.

So sit, and wait, and bend, and break.
The rise, and fall, just you, that's all.
I'm here, you're there, don't mean, I don't care.
I'm so sorry, I was miles away.

It's been a day of, tiny triumphs,
it's been a week spent in despair.
You can't send it, down a phone line,
I do my best, but I'm not there.

So sleep, and wake, and dream up your fate,
and rise and fall, watch you, grow tall.
I'm here, you're there, but you should know I still love you,
when I'm, miles away.

I'll be home again,
I'll be home again,
Comin' home again.
I'm comin' home again.

    General CommentThis song is different to shihads political songs. I think that it is obvious it is about a long distance relationship. Bloody good song

    General Commenti think this song just describes the heavy life of touring with a band. Its just Jon telling his loved ones that he will be home agian, eventually. he wants to be there as soon as he can, and keeps reminding them he will be back. hes coming home again...

    General CommentThis reminds me of my niece. Seeing as I don't have children, my niece is the closest thing to a child that I have and when I'm away from her I'm all ahh and grr and sad and all that nonsense. And this song just reminds me of how much I love my niece, how much she loves me and yep...

    -Katie. xoxo.

    PS: Fuck, Shihad are good.
