Sleepless hours and dreamless nights and far aways
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Heaven knows and lord it shows when I'm away
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

Same old show in a different town on another time
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Even though you're far away, you're on my mind
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here


And I'd like to change my life, and you know I would
Just to be with you tonight, baby, if I could
But I've got my job to do, and I do it well,
So I guess that's how it is.


Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here


On the road it's a heavy load, but I'll get by
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here
Pay the price, make a sacrifice, and still I'll try
Ooo ooo ooo, wishing you were here

    The band had a grueling touring schedule that took them away from home more than they were there. This is ultimately why he left the band a decade later in '85.

    To me it signifies all of the sacrifices we make in life - and the realization that the decision may not have been the right one; however, the realization came years and years too late
