When Are You Coming Home? – Heather Martin
Six-year old, Heather Martin, sings her heart out for her older brother Shaun, who after a year of college left to serve with the Army.
In “When Are You Coming Home,” Heather draws out a picture of how sad life is without Shaun and how she hopes for his safe return home.
When are you coming home, Shaun?
When are you coming home?!
We lit up the house like we always do but it doesn’t seem bright ’cause we can’t have you.
In my prayers I ask God to keep you safe.
And I’m trying to be really brave.
Tell me that the fighting’s through.
I really miss you.
The song is so sad, but so beautiful at the same time.
To all of those with a loved one serving abroad, sing along with Heather for their safe trip back home.
