  • I'm in the sky tonight
    There I can keep by your side
    Watching the wide world riot
    And hiding out
    I'll be coming home next year

    Into the sun we climb
    Climbing our wings will burn white
    Everyone strapped in tight
    We'll ride it out
    I'll be coming home next year

    Come on, get on, get on
    Take it till life runs out
    No-one can find us now
    Living with our heads underground

    Into the night we shine
    Lighting the way we glide by
    Catch me if I get too high
    When I come down
    I'll be coming home next year

    I'm in the sky tonight
    There I can keep by your side
    Watching the whole world wind
    Around and round
    I'll be coming home next year

    Come on, get on, get on
    Take it till I fall down
    No one can find us now
    Living with our heads underground

    I'll be coming home next year
    I'll be coming home next year
    Everything's all right up here
    When I come down
    I'll be coming home next year

    Say goodbye
    Say goodbye
    Say goodbye
    Say goodbye

    I'll be coming home next year
    I'll be coming home next year
    Everything's all right up here
    When I come down
    I'll be coming home next year Writer/s: Taylor Hawkins, David Eric Grohl, Nate Mendel

  • Ben from Ocean City, NjMy father is supposed to be sent to Iraq this year to fight for the war on terror. I'm strongly against the war, but I wished him the best of luck and he told me He'd be fine. His specific words were "I'll be coming home next year" This songs means a lot more to me now.
  • Simon from Perth, AustraliaIt's a pretty song but definitely derivative of the Beatles. And Diego, I reckon you're confused with Hello Goodbye.
  • Diego from Santiago, ChileThe ending is very much alike the ending of The Beatles "Across the universe". Is a really nice tribute in truly beautiful song.
  • Doug from Balintore, Scotlandi don't know how people can say this is the foo's worst song - it's a really good track
  • Andrew Archer from Tokyo, JapanI really like this song because as usually it show that the FF can alternate their style and stay fresh all the time. It's also very emtional and reminds me of the joy I'll have when I return home eventually...
