Saturday before the sun is up
I'm out the door and on my way
I catch the two and then the thirty five
And by six fifteen I'm on the train

Thirty miles till the final stop
And still I have to walk a few more
By the time I finally reach your garden's gate
I have nineteen steps till I'm at your door

Oh what a thrill
To finally be with you
And when I see your face I know that

There ain't nothing strong enough to keep me away from you
There can be a wall of fire ten feet or higher
I would just walk on through
Where there once was only room for one
Wherever there will be two

That's why I travel all this way for you
To you
For you

Sunday night and I'm at home alone
And I miss the smell of your perfume
Five long days and four more hours
Till I am there again with you

And oh what a thrill
To finally be with you
When I see your face
I know that

There ain't nothing strong enough to keep me away from you
There can be a wall of fire ten feet or higher
I would walk on through
Where there once was only room for one
Wherever there will be two

That's why I travel all this way for you

Seconds make mintues
Make hours make days
I've added it all up a million ways
Multiply that times a fact and when I'm with you
I feel brand new

That's why I travel all this way for you

There ain't nothing strong enough to keep me away from you
There can be a wall of fire ten feet or higher
I would walk on through
Where there once was only room for one
Wherever there will be two

That's why I travel all this way
Just to see your pretty face
Each and every saturday for you
To you
For you

    General CommentBeautiful song... captures the feeling of missing someone perfectly and the lengths we go would go through just to be with that person again, even if it's for a brief moment it's worth it just to see them smile again.
