Wide-eyed, awake in this bed.
My god, morning has begun.
I'm planning my return ahead,
I hope this can be undone.

And I try to get by, I know I can't deny
that I'm scraping for one last ounce of hope
that I'll make it home tonight.

When I return can I hold your hand?
If you wanna wait, then I understand,
'Cause it's been some time
Since we set these feelings aside.
The breeze is sailing through your hair.
I'll sit through the night and I don't care
'Cause it's you I really want, you I really want,
You I really need inside.

I drive through cities as fast as I can.
I've been speeding through the night
'cause I keep picturing your smile along the way.

When I return can I hold your hand?
If you wanna wait, then I understand,
'Cause it's been so long
Since we set these feelings aside.
The breeze is sailing through your hair.
I'll sit through the night and I don't care
'Cause it's you I really want, you I really want,
You I really need inside.

Lately I've been waiting on a prayer
That you'll never have to leave here again.
There's no guarantees but oh, my baby, please
Can you keep yourself alive until then?

Well, I'm so tired.
Well, my eyes, they've been wired
on the road where I'll find my way back to you.

Will you be waiting for me when I return
'Cause I'll be home soon, and I just need you,
'Cause it's been so long
Since we set these feelings aside.
The breeze is sailing through your hair.
I'll sit through the night and I don't care
'Cause it's you I really want, you I really want,
You I really need by my side.
'Cause it's you I really want, you I really want,
You I really need inside.
