In another five minutes you’d be home
Wrapping birthday presents with a smile
Straighten up the living room, kiss the card
Pull my favorite records from the pile

Something got in the way
Your bags fall to the ground
Something got in the way
Hide your ears from that sound

In another five minutes they’d be home
Business trips, vacations touching down
“Thanks for bringing the kids, you look great”
“It’s so nice to have you back in town”

Something got in the way
Shadows fill with sudden light
Something got in the way
Hide your eyes from that sight

If I walked for five minutes I’d be home
Past the office building with the view
Open up the front door, see you there
Whatever else happens, I love you

Something got in the way
You can feel it from the street
Something got in the way
Hide my skin from that heat

In another five minutes, I’ll be home
Call me home
