  • A father waits upon a son
    A mother prays for his return
    I just called to see
    If you still have a place for me
    We know that like took us apart
    But you're still within my heart
    I go to sleep and feel your spirit next to me
    I'll make it home again
    I pray you'll fall in love again
    Just say you'll entertain the possibility
    I learned enough from my mistakes
    Learned from all I didn't say
    Won't you wait for me

    It may be long to get me there
    It feels like I've been everywhere
    But someday I'll be coming home
    Round and round the world will spin
    Oh, the circle never ends
    So you know that I'll be coming home

    We fight to stay alive
    But somebody's got to die
    It's so strange to me
    A new year, a new enemy
    Another soldier gone to war
    Another story told before
    Now it's told again
    It seems the wars will never end
    But we'll make it home again
    Back where we belong again
    We're holding on to when
    We used to dare to dream
    We pray we live to see
    Another day in history
    Yes we still believe

    It may be long to get me there
    It feels like I've been everywhere
    But someday I'll be coming home
    Round and round the world will spin
    Oh, the circle never ends
    So you know that I'll be coming home

    Coming home, coming home
    I'm coming, I'm coming
    I'm coming, I'm coming
    You know that I'll be coming
    I'm coming, I'm coming
    Coming home, I'll be coming
    You know that I'll be coming home
    I'll be coming home
    I'll be coming home

    It may be long to get me there
    It feels like I've been everywhere
    But someday I'll be coming home
    Round and round the world will spin
    Oh, the circle never ends
    So you know that I'll be coming home Writer/s: JOHN STEPHENS, WILL ADAMS
