When you say, I miss the things you do,
I just wanna get back close again to you.
But for now, your voice is near enough,
How I miss you, when I miss you, love.
And though,
All the days that pass me by so slow
All the emptiness inside me flows, all around,
And there's no way out
I'm just thinkin' so much of you,
There was never any doubt...


CHORUS
I can wait forever, if you say you'll be there, too
I can wait forever, if you will, I know it's worth it all
To spend my life alone with you.


When it looked, as though my life was wrong,
You took my love and gave it somewhere to belong
I'll be here, when hope is out of sight,
I just wish that I was next to you tonight, and oh
I'll be reachin' for you even though,
You'll be somewhere else, my love will go
Like a bird, on it's way back home
I could never let you go, and I just want you to know...


CHORUS


Where are you know?
Alone, with the thoughts we share
Keep them strong somehow,
And you know, I'll always be there...


I can wait forever, if you say you'll be there, too
I can wait, forever if you will, I know it's worth it all
To spend my life alone...
I can wait forever, if you say you'll be there, too,
I can wait, forever if you will, I can wait forever or more...
I can wait forever...

    Ito ang pinakamagandang kanta na nagawa sa mundo ng musika. Kasi napakameaningful ng kantang ito the best ang gumawa nito at sa boses mahirap kantahin talagang pinaghirapan itong icompose kahit na hindi ito paborito ng teenagers alam kong pangmatanda ito pero ito dapat pakinggan ng mga hearbroken kaya nilang maghintay para lamang sa minamahal kahit sobrang tagal kailangan dahil ito ay sakripisyo lamang sa pagmamahalan ng dalawang taong naghiwalay o naghahanap ng kasama

    Since my almost perfect husband, best friend and support person passed away last year after a long illness I have missed him constantly and it has been so painful and I keep wondering how I will survive everyday when I wake up. I heard this song and it sounds like it was written for someone who lost the love of their life. "I know it's worth it all to spend my life alone with you" to me means that I know where he is and he's waiting for me and with the help of my God, church family, and my family and friends I can make it and I am praying for the day I can be stronger and not have so much pain. I will be with him again someday, but waiting hurts. My husband and I loved to listen to songs he would record when we went on trips and the Air Supply albums were among the top of the list. I just don't remember hearing this song until now, or maybe I heard it but the words never meant anything to me like they do now. We grew up in this era and thank you Air Supply for this song.
