You may recognize this theme
From my Trouble Man album
It's one of my favorite themes so
I'm happy to, I thought it was very pretty

We're going to
Do a thing now that we hope you enjoy
Some people told me
You know when you're in love
And your lover leaves you and you've got nobody
The lonely hours come over you
You sit and wonder and think, you say ooh

Distant lover
So many miles away
Ooh-ha-oh, how I long for you every night,
Every night
And sometimes I yearn through the day

Distant lover
Ooh-ooh, lover
You should think about me
Say a prayer for me
Please, oh please baby
Think about me sometimes
Think about me here
Here in misery

Oh, say it, baby

As I reminisce
Through our joyful summer together
The promises we made, baby
All the daily letters
Then, all of a sudden
Everything seemed to explode
Now, I gaze out my window
Sugar, down a lonesome road, ooh

Distant lover
Sugar, how can you treat my heart
So mean and cruel?
Didn't you know, sugar
That every moment that I spent with you
I treasure it like it was a precious jewel
Oh baby, Lord have mercy

I treasured it, baby
And you want to leave, ooh
Oh baby, don't go

Please, come back, baby
Somethin' I wanna say
When you left
You took all of me with you
Now Lord, I want
Do you wanna hear me, plead, scream?
Please, please, oh please baby?
Come back home, girl
Oh baby oh
Oh-oh baby, please darlin'
Oh ooh come back home
