Six on the second hand
Two new years resolutions
And there's just no question
What this man should do

Take all the time lost
All the days that I cost
Take what I took and
Give it back to you

All this time
We were waiting for each other
All this time
I was waiting for you
We got all these words
Can't waste them on another
So I'm straight in a straight line
Running back to you

I don't know what day it is
I had to check the paper
I don't know the city
But it isn't home

But you say I'm lucky
To love something that loves me
But I'm torn as I could be
Wherever I roam

Hear me say

All this time
We were waiting for each other
All this time
I was waiting for you
We got all these words
Can't waste them on another
So I'm straight in a straight line
Running back to you

Yeah, all, running back to you
Yeah, all, running back to you
Yeah...
Oh, every time is so far
It's just so far
To get back to where you are

All this time
We were waiting for each other
All this time
I was waiting for you
We got all these words
Can't waste them on another
So I'm straight in a straight line
Running back to you
I'm straight in a straight line
Running back to you
Straight in a straight line
Running back to you

    It shows,may i say in a wonderful way,that when you know you love someone you shouldn't waste your love on someone else but try and work out your relationship with the person you really love

    It's basically about being so in love that your being blind sided by the world and all that really matters to you is your one true love and you'll do anything to make your love happen, and about being there for each other and never letting go. (yes kinda cheesy)
