lyrics

Soldier's Homecoming
(Open arms are here when you return)

"Laughter- on our road trip cross country
Beauty- from Carolina to Monterrey.
Oh, you were impressed
with my thrift store dress
& how I laughed at all your jokes.
Now… I keep your gift so close.

On a road trip you stole my heart.
Gettin’ lost was my favorite part
No rush to be anywhere but here.

On one journey we made our way.
Another journey put you far from home
[But] open arms are here
--when you return.

Valor- is a virtue that’s elusive
Honor- when you stand in uniform.
There’s no word for all the courage
That is coursing through your veins.
And we wait for our heroes to come home.

On the day you flew away
All the things we couldn’t say
I now pray and sing everyday.

On one journey you took a turn
Another journey took you far from home.
Open arms are here when you return.

Solo. (Flaco Jimenez- accordion)

Knowing- that our worlds are now
so different.
Accepting- this space for what it is.
I treasure the notes you send my way
And I hinge on every word;
& the picture of my Hero~ coming home.

Mountain islands & desert seas
Fighting unseen enemies
Words can’t tell the depth of your sacrifice.

Counting days is like counting stars
Till you come home I’ll count every one!
Open arms are here, when you return.
Yes Open arms are here when you return."
