Tonight I'm howling at a foreign moon
Might as well be a junkie's spoon
For all the light it's given me
Sinking in my misery

It's been forty days and forty nights
Darling since I held you tight
I walk the desert of my dreams
I got to get out of here before I scream

Too much take off, too much landing
No such love, no understanding

Chorus:
I can't wait baby till you're by my side
I can't wait baby though you know I've tried
I can't wait baby just one more ride
I can't wait till you're by my side

Could you crawl through your telephone
Girl I'm so tired of being alone
I'm talking to walls in my hotel room
Around the world in a sonic boom

Some close calls and some near misses
All I want is your sweet soul kisses

Chorus

For all the noise on my hometown street
Little children playing at my feet
Well I would give my soul to be
Back in your arms in tennessee

Too much take off, too much landing
No such love, no understanding

I can't wait baby till you're by my side
I can't wait though you know I've tried
I can't wait just one more ride
I can't wait, can't wait
Baby till you're by my side

I can't wait baby till your by my side
I can't wait though you know I've tried
I can't wait just one more ride
I can't wait till you're by my side
