(spoken:)
Wait a minute, baby
You packin' your bags
How soon
Naw, don't do that
Wait a minute
Why don't you stay a while
How soon
We can work this out
Sit down
Let's talk about it
Chorus:
I miss your smiling face
The smell of your perfume
Girl, this damn bed is cold
Nothing to hold on to
Oh yeah, the phone is cool
But girl, I need you here
Be it plane, train, or automobile
How soon can you get here

I'm gonna miss you
More than you know
Every time you leave
I wanna beg you not to go
We have so much fun, girl
Don't we though
When you pack your
Bags to leave
I try not to let
My feelings show

It's so hard for me
Especially when
You been around
Distant lovers
Is what we are
And girl
It's breakin' me down

Repeat chorus

When will I see you?
It's never too soon
Can you come
In the morning
And leave later
On that afternoon?
See, I'm just as scared
Whenever you're away
Girl, I'd give anything
Just to see you everyday

It's so hard for me
Especially after
You've been around
Distant lovers
Are what we are
And girl
It's breakin' me down

You're a career girl
You gotta do
What you gotta do
As much as I want
You here with me
Girl, I'm so damn
Proud of you

Repeat chorus twice

Get here, get here
Yeah, yeah
How soon
Ooh, baby
Girl, I hate to see you leave
Can't you see it's killing me
Be it plane
Train or automobile
Get here

Repeat chorus twice
