  • I don't know where I
    Am going to rest my head tonight.
    So I won't promise that I'll speak
    To you today,
    But if I ever find
    Another place, a better time
    For that moment,
    I was never what I am.

    Take to me to where you are,
    What you've become,
    And what you will do
    When I am gone.
    I won't forget,
    I won't forget.

    Maybe someday,
    You'll be somewhere
    Talking to me
    As if you knew me,
    Saying, I'll be home for next year, darling.
    I'll be home for next year.

    In between the lines
    Is the only place you'll find
    What you're missing
    That you didn't know was there.
    So when I say goodbye,
    You must do your best to try
    And forgive me this weakness,
    This weakness.

    'Cause I don't know what to say.
    Another day,
    Another excuse to be sent your way.
    Another day,
    Another year.

    Maybe someday,
    You'll be somewhere
    Talking to me
    As if you knew me,
    Saying, I'll be home for next year, darling.
    I'll be home for next year.
    And maybe sometime,
    In a long time,
    You'll remember
    What I had said there.
    I said, I'll be home for next year, darling,
    I'll be home for next year.

    If you think of me,
    I will think of you.

    Maybe someday,
    You'll be somewhere
    Talking to me
    As if you knew me,
    Saying, I'll be home for next year, darling.
    I'll be home for next year.
    Maybe sometime,
    In a long time,
    You'll remember
    What I had said there.
    I said, I'll be home for next year.
    Maybe someday,
    You'll be somewhere
    Talking to me
    As if you knew me,
    Saying, I'll be home for next year, darling.
    I'll be home for next year. Writer/s: ALEXANDER JAMES TRIMBLE, KEVIN STEPHEN BAIRD, SAMUEL MATTHEW HALLIDAY
