DISCLAIMER: I do not own Detective Conan or any of its characters and concepts! They all belong to the genius of Gosho Aoyama. Except for Yuuichi--he's mine! ^_^ No touchie!

Author's Note: Here you go, all--the long-awaited, much-anticipated sequel to Stronger Than I Am. Hope it doesn't disappoint too much. More to come soon; this one's gonna be a doozy, folks--strap in!

Coming Home
by Becky Tailweaver

All those nights I've spent alone,
Uninspired, so tired and wasted.
There's lots of times I'd have telephoned;
I couldn't find the words to say,

I'm coming home,
Lord I'm coming home.
I'll make it short,
I'll make it sweet,
Make it up to you and me.
I'm not the same guy I used to be.
What can I do to make you believe,

I'm coming home.
Oh, I'm coming home.
I'm coming home,
Yeah I'm coming home.
Only seems like yesterday,
You and I were saying goodbye,
Now I'm just a few miles away;
Gonna see you tonight.

I've been alone and I live the pain,
Reach for you in desperation.
I was wrong, I'll take the blame;
I need you back now, I just can't wait.

I'm coming home,
Yeah, I'm coming home.
Coming home,
I'm just coming, coming,
Waiting it out.
I'm just coming home.

--Bryan Adams, "Coming Home"
