He called her on the road
From a lonely cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
And when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
A little voice came on the phone
And said "Daddy when you coming home"
He said the first thing that came to his mind

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
I'm your imaginary friend
And I know I'm in your prayers
Oh I'm already there

She got back on the phone
Said I really miss you darling
Don't worry about the kids they'll be alright
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight
And I'll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the light and close your eyes

I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share
Oh I'm already there

We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share
Oh I'm already there
Oh I'm already
There

    This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.Lonestar did such a wonderful job. Everytime I listen to this song i start crying especially the part when his little kid said "Daddy When You Coming Home?" It is a really good song!

    It's like when my daddy left for iraq in 2005. I know being in the military is a great honor, but i wasn't sure he would make it back on that plane.

    I think it is about a father and husband that has left his family to die and he is calling one last time to tell them that he misses them and loves them dearly.

    It is made clear when he tells his child;
    I am already there take a look around,
    I'm the sunshine in your hair,
    I'm the shadow on the ground,
    I'm the whisper in the wind,
    I'm your imaginary friend,
    And i know, i'm in your prayers,
    Oh i'm already there'
    And his wife tells him
    She got back on the phone
    Said i really miss you darling
    Don't worry about the kids they'll be alright
    Wish i was in your arms
    Lying right there beside you
    But i know that i'll be in your dreams tonight
    And i'll gently kiss your lips
    Touch you with my fingertips
    So turn out the light and close your eyes

    I'm already there
    Don't make a sound
    I'm the beat in your heart
    I'm the moonlight shining down
    I'm the whisper in the wind
    And i'll be there until the end
    Can you feel the love that we share
    Oh i'm already there

    We may be a thousand miles apart
    But i'll be with you wherever you are

    I'm already there

    My father and i were very close, best friends and when i hear this song it reminds me that he maybe gone from this world, but he is still around in everything else.
