about

This song was inspired by those YouTube montages of military members coming home and surprising their loved ones.

lyrics

Home
I never would have known
My body'd turn to stone
Right now
Outside this house
I lived in once yesteryear

Lonely
Is my one and only
I ring up her phone
Before
I ring her door
She puts it up to her ear

(Hello)
Hello
(You've been gone for so so long)
I've been gone
I know
I know
I thought that I would call and say hello
(Hello)
I know when I'll be coming home
I know
I know
Look outside your window
Say hello

Slowly
She comes walking toward me
(I come walking toward thee)
I can see her face from here
(I can see his face from here)
A single tear
Gets pressed against the window

Eyes wide
Open what a surprise
Hoping now that what she's seen's
(Hoping now that what I've seen's)
Not just a dream
While sleeping on our pillow

Hello
(Hello)
I've been gone
(You've been gone for so so long)
I know
I know
I thought that I would call and say hello
(Hello)
I know when I'll be coming home
I know
I know
Look outside your window
Say hello

(So afraid they'd be
Coming to tell me
That I'd never see your face
Right outside our window
You're right outside our window)

Rushing
Down the stairs
In nothing
But underwear
She doesn't care
(He doesn't care)
She's unprepared
(I'm unprepared)
And never been so ready

She opens the door
(I couldn't love him more)
Than here right now
(But it appears somehow)
I love her more already
(I love him more already)

(Hello)
Hello

I've been gone
(You've been gone for so so long)
I know
I know
I thought that I would call and say hello
(Hello)
I know when I'll be coming home
I know
I know
Look outside your window
Say hello
(Hello)
Look outside your window
I am
