I don't know where I am going to rest my head tonight
So I won't promise that I'll speak to you today
But if I ever find
Another place
A better time
For that moment I was never what I am

Take to me to where you are
What you've become
And what you will do when I am gone
I won't forget (x2)

(REFRAIN)
Maybe someday
You'll be somewhere
Talking to me
As if you knew me
Saying I'll be home for next year, darling
I'll be home for next year

*instrumental*

In between the lines
Is the only place you'll find
What you're missing but you didn't know was there
So when I say goodbye
You must do your best to try
And forgive me this weakness
This weakness

'Cause I don't know what to say
Another day
Another excuse to be sent your way
Another day
Another year

(REFRAIN)
Maybe someday
You'll be somewhere
Talking to me
As if you knew me
Saying I'll be home for next year, darling
I'll be home for next year
And maybe sometime
In a long time
You'll remember
What I had said there
I said I'll be home for next year, darling
I'll be home for next year

(BRIDGE)
If
You
Think of me
I will think of you

(REFRAIN)
Maybe someday
You'll be somewhere
Talking to me
As if you knew me
Saying I'll be home for next year, darling
I'll be home for next year
Maybe sometime
In a long time
You'll remember
What I had said there
I said
I'll be home for next year

Maybe someday
You'll be somewhere
Talking to me
As if you knew me
Saying I'll be home for next year, darling
I'll be home for next year

    This song is written as an apology to the people back home who he has failed to communicate with, e.g. his friends, family and girlfriend, hence "But if I ever find another place, a better time" and "I don't know what to say, another day, another excuse to be sent your way".

    He thinks she's trying to cover up the fact that she doesn't actually care about him. Not necessarily a girlfriend, maybe a sister or mother even.

    Its a beautiful song! He's like saying that they should spend every moment that they have together before he leaves on tour and the time between those lines might change but hes telling her to stay the same and that he'll be back the next year.

    I think this song could be about two friends or lovers who are far apart and they struggle to communicate because everything in both of their worlds are so crazy, but they know some day they'll see eachother again. This song is about two people who are experiencing a long distant relationship, in the early stages of their friendship or relationship.

    Enough about romantic love. Try thinking of friendship for a change. The beautiful thing that is friendship is so underrated in our society. I think this song represents the feeling of guilt of not being able to be close friends with someone and regretting it later on in their life. Such a shame.
