I'm Coming Home - Francine Honey

I’m Coming Home

And then there is the desire to return back to ourselves after the long cold winter and after hearing the coyote howling, calling for us, the lone wolf.  We are humans and need connection.  It has been hard for all of us not being able to connect with others, wanting to be home with our families, our parents, our children, our grand children, our friends.  I placed this song here to express that desire and need and the hope that one day, we would all be able to go “home”.

I rarely record songs that I haven’t had a hand in writing myself.  I was in Italy on a songwriting retreat at a villa in Tuscany.  We had a performance night planned at the Villa.  My songwriting friend Joy Newby was also at the retreat.  As I was getting ready, she knocked on the door and told me that she had just finished a song she had been working on for years and asked if I would sing it at the show that evening.  When she played the song for me, I fell in love with it and we performed it together that night.

After that evening, I found I would wake up in the morning with that song in my head.  It is a song that mirrors the feeling of wanting to go home ending a long period of being away from loved ones and the isolation that one feels in winter.  With all that is going on in the world with the pandemic, I felt it is a song that is needed at this particular moment as we face “a long cold winter” and we all have the desire to be with those we love.

Song Lyrics

I’m Coming Home
Written by Joy Newby (ASCAP)

I can see a long, cold winter
I can see a long, cold spring
My breath is frozen on the window
I’m coming home, I’m coming home.

The trees, they do shiver
At the whisper of the wind
And the coyotes howlin’
Goodbye my friend, goodbye my friend.

I can see a long, cold winter
I can see a long, cold spring
My breath is frozen on the window
I’m coming home, I’m coming home. 

I can see a long, cold winter
I can see a long, cold spring
My breath if frozen on the window
I’m coming home, I’m coming home. 

I’m coming home, I’m coming home.
