Lyrics

WHEN THE CHILDREN COME HOME

CHORUS:

When the children come home when they’ve been out on their own

On their pillows their tired heads rest

When the children come home you’re no longer alone

And the family is there in the nest

And a mother feels truly at rest


Oh the babies will cry when they’re tired

Their days were so full of play

They’re safely tucked in, eyelids are closing

At the end of another long day

The years pass and their circles widen

They come and they go with their friends

You leave the light on way after dark

Sleepless till they’re home again


CHORUS

BRIDGE:

You wonder how time went so quickly

Life is more than just gathering wool

The phone rings less - it’s so quiet

The rooms are empty yet full...


Soon it’s Christmas and there’s a commotion

Doors fling wide and everyone’s in

At nightfall they’re all safe in their beds

There’s no greater peace than when...


CHORUS
