Lyrics:

When I think about
The distance between us
And how hard it is
At times here on my own
Then I think about your smile
About our love a little while
I close my eyes and I’m not alone

Sometimes I whisper your name
Or dream awhile a lonely lovers’ game
All I’m trying to say
Is that I love you in my way
And though the days seem long
I’ll soon be coming home

Though my footsteps fall
My heart won’t ever stumble
Through a thousand miles a day
My love won’t tire
For with each pa**ing day
I pray that our love is here to stay
I close my eyes and kiss you goodnight

 

It’s happened before
But I still don’t really know the score
I want so bad for you to know
What my heart is trying to say
What my heart is trying to say

As I leave my song
My heart belongs to you, my love
There really are no more words
That I can find
For my love, you are my life
You are the colour in my sight
And I close my eyes
And you fill my mind

Sometimes I whisper your name
Or dream awhile a lonely lovers’ game
All I want to say
Is that I love you in my way
And though the days seem long
I’ll soon be coming home
Coming home.
