I’m coming home

I’ve been away far too long

I’m leaving it up to you

To understand


You may wonder why

When it was me who said

The last goodbye

But cannot change my mind

One more time


It’s high time

I can’t wait any longer

It’s my time to find out

Who I belong to

It’s breaking my heart

Waitin’ for another day


When the time comes

You won’t see me around

I’ve been patient

Standing my ground

Gotta see you and hold you

Hear what you have to say


Do you wake up in the morning

Wantin’ me

The way I wake up wantin’ you

And in the same breath

You keep hauntin’ me

Does it ever occur to you

I’ve been in love too long

To stop now, oh

I’ve been away too long

I’ve been away too long


If you’ve ever cried

Then you’ll know the pain

You felt inside

And just like me you pray

It’s all untrue


But time alone will tell

If you have learned

Life’s lessons well

And maybe then you’ll know

What I should do


Been away

I’ve been away

I’ve been away too long

I’ve been away too long

I’ve been away too long

Too long, much too long

Much too long
