First day of recess, they all laughed at me
When I fell off the swing set and scraped up my knee.
The nurse called my momma to say I'd be late,
When she gave me the phone I could hear momma say,
"I'm so sorry, son, though I think you're so brave,"
She was smilin' when she said,

"When you come home
No matter how far
Run through the door and into my arms
It's where you are loved
It's where you belong
I will be here
When you come home"

I waved good-bye through the window as I boarded the plane
My first job in Houston was waiting for me
Found a letter from momma tucked in my coat
As I flew down the runway I smiled when she wrote,
"I'll miss you son, you'll be so far away
I'll be waiting for the day..."

"When you come home
No matter how far
Run through the door and into my arms
It's where you are loved
It's where you belong
I will be here
When you come home"

"I don't think she can hear you now," the doctor told me.
"Your mother is fading. It's best that you leave."
So I whispered "I love you" then turned away
But I stopped at the door when I heard momma say
"I love you son, but they're callin' me away.
Promise me before I go..."

"When you come home
No matter how far
Run through the door and into my arms
It's where you are loved
It's where you belong
I will be here
When you come home"
