This song was written on a napkin, exactly one week ago today
We were driving through Nebraska, and I couldn't help but think about
How long I'll be away

Late at night I'm always wondering, how you are and if you've been okay
And if I had the time to call you, I'd tell you that I've missed you every day

And I wish that I could see your face
And I wish that I could leave this place
Even though I feel so far away from you
You'll always be, next to me, in my dreams

All the letters that you wrote me
Are kept inside a shoebox left at home
I sometimes wish that I could read them
Remind me that I'm not at all alone

And I wish that I could see your face
And I wish that I could leave this place
Even though I feel so far away from you
You'll always be, next to me, in my dreams

You asked me to send you postcards
From all of the places that I'll be
This song was marked return to sender
So all these lines never were received

And I wish that I could see your face
And I wish that I could leave this place
Even though I feel so far away from you
You'll always be, next to me, in my dreams
