"While I'm Away" as written by Keith Michael Goodwin, Daniel Eliezer Schwartz and Timothy John Arnold....
All night, all night
I've thought of you, I always do
At times I fantasize
You know I miss making love to you, you
I always do, while I'm away from you

I miss your warm hips
I miss your soft kiss
And what your green eyes do when I'm touching you
So please, don't forget me
I would wish for you but you won't come true
While I'm away from you

Every night I turn out the light
And I dream of you babe, I always do
Hold tight, you have to enjoy life
As long as you're what I'm coming home to the skies are blue
While I'm away from you

While I'm away
While I'm away
While I'm away from you

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "At times, I fantasize" not "At times I have failed to size"

    While I'm Away
    Goodwin: I basically thought of all of the things I say to my wife on the phone when I'm on tour and put it in a song. This was the last song written for the album. I really wanted the song to feel like a Yann Tiersen arrangement at first, so I asked Dan to play several rhythms at once on the guitar and he did. It’s one of my favorite guitar parts on the album. Tim’s beat is full of ghost notes--which I love--and the vocal arrangement might be the most complex of them all.
