She has a free download, you have to give some personal info since they treat it as a purchase. But this song is really powerful and shows that she is still an amazing songwriter. It brought tears to my eyes and that doesn't happen often. Her voice has aged, but in a wonderful way. This is powerful powerful stuff

Till They All Get Home



Till They All Get Home. I've spent a good part of my life on the road. It always seems the rest of the world has somewhere to go, while you have to invent a somewhere to go. I'm addressing humanity and people who's life has taken them from home ~ maybe even forever. I have a good handle on being far away. I feel for the soldiers, the refugees, and all who are trying to get home. Home is where the heart is, home is a castle with reasons for leaving and reasons take time.

Love, Melanie

Everybody is heading homeward
Or leaving for distance and places unknown
They're tying up their laces or fluffing up their pillows
Say a prayer 'til they all get home

Say a little prayer 'til they all get home
Say a little prayer 'til they all get home

I knew when we woke up you would be leaving
You knew when you left me it might be too long
That kiss on your shoulder, is me looking over
Close to your heart, so you're never alone

Say a little prayer 'til they all get home
Say a little prayer 'til they all get home

Home is where the heart is and home is a castle
With reasons for leaving and reasons take time
But we're in this together, so never forget it
Say a little prayer 'til they all get home

Say a little prayer 'til they all get home
Say a little prayer 'til they all get home

Make a commotion, make a little difference
Shake up the rafters and rock the boat
We're all in this together, so never forget it
Lets say a prayer 'til they all get home
