Verse 1

Been a while since you went to Afghanistan
I didn't say goodbye no I didn't even shake your hand
Said I had some other plans
And I'd catch you back home man

Pre-Chorus 1

Now it's been a year
And you still ain't here

Chorus

I miss us throwing that ball in the yard
All those days where we'd just shoot bucks
Man I miss those bed time stories
Talking bout your favorite days in high school
But most of all, I miss you
So please come home soon

Verse 2

I can't even imagine the heat
No matter where you are it's a hundred degrees
Never sit down always on your feet
Always awake, yeah, never asleep

Pre-Chorus 2
Twenty-three months to the day
Why are you still away?

Chorus

Yeah I miss us throwing that ball in the yard
All those days where we'd just shoot bucks
Man I miss those bed time stories
Talking bout your favorite days in high school
But most of all, I miss you
So please come home soon

Bridge

I was sitting there, watching moms TV
When the doorbell rang, and there stood two Marines
As they handed over that folded flag, the whole world went quiet
Now I'm standing in the rain, listenin' to a 21-gun goodbye

Chorus

Man, I miss us throwing that ball in the yard
All those days where we'd just shoot bucks
Yeah, I miss those bed time stories
Talking bout your favorite days in high school
But most of all, I miss you
Brother, we all miss you
And you went home too soon
