​Back Next Year

This song is by Jackopierce and appears on the live album Live From The Americas (1994).

Allison sits by the window and wonders
Exactly when he will return
He left in November she can hardly remember
He said he'd be back real soon
It's now June

And Allison wonders if her three children
Will ever see their father again
The early morning gas put the wind in his sails
As he left them for the sea once again
He is now gone, maybe for long

Now every night she sits on the rooftop,
Hoping his ship she'll see clear.
She remembers his whisper as he knelt down to kiss her,
He'd said "You know I'll be back next year".

I'll be back,
I'll be back.
Back next year,
Back next year.

Allison and her son and women they gather
In their sea sprayed shingled homes.
They try not speak of the man they're missing,
Together but they're still alone.

And Allison tries hard to contain her feelings
But they see her crying she fears.
They put their arms life and heard heart saying
"You know he'll be Back Next Year."

I'll be back,
I'll be back.
Back next year,
Back next year.

After seven months of sailing has left her to wonder
If the sea has taken her man.
Through all of the waiting the pain's not abating.
It's something she can no longer stand.

She turns from the horizon to put down the children
Wiping the last of her tears.
He's standing their with his children all around him he says
"I told you I'd be back This Year."

I'll be back,
I'll be back.
Back next year,
Back next year.
I'll be back,
I'll be back.
Back next year,
Back next year.
