I picture you in your red dress
Looking so perfect
Everyone's asking you
Where is your boyfriend?
Then you explain
I'm somewhere off on a plane
Or in some other city
Even wondering how he's so lucky

I will give you all I have of my time
Even though girl every second passing you're on my mind
Cause the only thing I know for sure
Is where I was the day before
But I promise that this much is true

I do it for you, I do it for us
I do it so one day we can turn this love
Into a house and a home
Where you won't ever have to be alone
And I promise you I'll make it I will
I hope you're waiting still

I can see you on a park bench (oh)
Reading your favorite
Book and they look and asking your if you tooken
And you say "yes, absolutely"
And "love my man truly"
But I knew if I was by your side
They wouldn't even try

I will give you all I have of my time
Even though girl every second passing you're on my mind
Cause the only thing I know for sure
Is where I was the day before
But I promise that this much is true

I do it for you, I do it for us
I do it so one day we can turn this love
Into a house and a home
Where you won't ever have to be alone
And I promise you I'll make it I will
I hope you're waiting still

I hope when I get back from where I'm going you
Are still the one that I'm coming home to
Cause if you walk out that door
I'd be to blame
It's true
But

I do it for you, I do it for us
I do it so one day we can turn this love
Into a house and a home
Where you won't ever have to be alone
And I promise you I'll make it I will
I hope you're waiting still
I hope you're waiting still
I hope you're waiting still
Oh, ahhhhh
Oh, ahhhhh
Oh, ahhhhh

    It's just another explanation of why people engage in long distance relationships (with which I agree, true love makes torture worthwhile)
