When You Get Home

Written by Joshua Kirk, Nick Akin

They said some things they didn’t mean
He slammed a door and caused a scene
She packed her bags and now she’s Lord knows where
And he’s just sittin’ there, thinkin’ out loud

Baby when you get home
I’m gonna wrap my arms around you
I don’t care where you been,
Forget what you did along the way
I’m starin’ out the window
Lookin’ down our long driveway
Hopin’ you’ll come back
Where you belong
Guess I’ll see you when you get home

Fed up with livin’ by the rules
He left home and partied like a fool
Drank up every dime his father helped him save
Back home Daddy waits, thinking out loud

Boy when you get home
I’m gonna wrap my arms around you
I don’t care where you been,
Forget what you did along the way
I’m starin’ out the window
Lookin’ down our long driveway
Hopin’ you’ll come back
Where you belong
Guess I’ll see you when you get home

There’ve been times I turned my back on God
I pushed the pedal to the floor,
And drove clear out of town
And just when I thought
He’d never take me back again
I’d hear His voice calling me sayin’…

Child when you get home
I’m gonna wrap my arms around you
I don’t care where you been,
Forget what you did along the way
I’m starin’ out the window
Lookin’ down our long driveway
Hopin’ you’ll come back
Where you belong
Guess I’ll see you when you get home

I’m starin’ out the window
Lookin’ down our long driveway
Hopin’ you’ll come back
Where you belong
Guess I’ll see you when you get home
