"Wait For Me" as written by and Tyler Patrick/brenner Connolly....
You are not alone tonight
Imagine me there by your side
It's so hard to be here so far away, from you
I'm counting the days 'till
I'm finally done
I'm counting them down, yeah, one by one
It feels like forever 'till I return to you
But it helps me on those lonely nights
It's that one thing that keeps me alive

Knowing that you wait for me
Ever so patiently

No one else knows the feeling inside
We hang up the phone without saying goodnight
Because it's the sound of your voice that brings me home
It's never been easy to say
But it's easier when I've gone away

Knowing that you wait for me
Ever so patiently

Yeah, you're everything I've ever dreamed of having and
It's everything I need from you just knowing that you wait for me

What I'd give
What I'd do
Knowing I'm not there for you
Makes it so hard to leave
What I'd give
What I'd do
Anything to get me home to you
And this time I'll stay

And you wait for me
Ever so patiently

Yeah, you're everything I've ever dreamed of having and
It's everything I need from you just knowing that you wait for me

    General CommentPerhaps it's not about someone in the military, maybe just a long distance relationship. Either way, it's beautiful. <3

    General CommentI love this song, I can relate to it so much. Because it could be about a long distance relationship, missing the other person, wishing you could be together. Just like how I feel, waiting for the moment you can be together.

    General Commentabsolutely beautiful song! dont know what it means for sure but i feel like it could definitely be about a soldier at war with a wife back home waiting patiently for him to return and that is what gets him through!

    General CommentI absolutely LOVE this song. My boyfriend is in the Navy and I mailed him the lyrics to the song. He says everytime he reads it he can't help but cry....neither can I. I miss him so much.


    Amazing song. PERIOD.

    General CommentI dont have a significant other in the military, but i do have a lot of friends who are, and i can understand where this song comes from. one of my best friends in the whole world is being deployed to kuwait in a few months, and when i hear this song i think about how he will feel being away from his wife, and his family. it just makes me vision soldiers being away from their loved ones, and then i realize how much we owe those who protect us and how proud i am to say that some of my friends and family are in the military. this is a beautiful song, and God bless the troops

    Stay safe Nick. USMC Hoorah.

    Song MeaningMy best friend whom I love wholeheartedly deploys for the second and last time since I've been with him. He leaves in two weeks for Afghanistan and returns home in four months. The past week has been extremely hard for me, possibly the hardest times I've ever been through. I heard this song tonight and reminded me so much of him. I'm going to miss everything about him and him not being here. This song now plays over and over again cause it eases my mind. Just to know he's over there fighting for us and protecting us makes me that much more grateful. I can relate to many Theory of a Deadman songs. I pray Nick is safe and has a safe return home come December. Xoxo troops!

    General CommentI heard this song on the radio yesterday when I was trying on clothes at a store. It's another one of those perfect songs that reminds me of him and him being deployed for six more months. I can't wait.
