Absence make her heart grow fonder
While I'm conquering the last frontier
Lately I've found myself wonderin' out loud
Wonderin' what I was doin' here

[Chorus]
One day you'll understand how much you have me
One day you'll realise we have it easy
I can't offer you the future - I don't know it myself
All I can offer you is me
I'm all I can offer you right now

Patience make her heart grow stronger
Reassure her she's where I want to be
Never was the grass ever greener
I'm about ready as I'll ever be

And one day you'll understand how much you have me
One day you'll realise we have it easy
If an expression of love is what you need to believe
All I can offer you is me
I'm all I can offer you right now

[Music]

I'm all I am
All I am, yeah

One day you'll understand how much you have me
One day you'll realise we have it easy
I can't offer you the future - I don't know it myself
All I can offer you is me

One day you'll understand how much you have me
One day you'll realise we have it easy
If an expression of love is what you need to believe
All I can offer you is me
I'm all I can offer you right now

[Pause]

Absence make her heart grow fonder
While I'm conquering the last frontier

    Absence make her heart grow fonder.
    While I'm conquering the last frontier.
    Lately I've found myself wonderin' out loud.
    Wonderin' what I was doin' here.

    [Chorus]
    One day you'll understand how much you have me.
    One day you'll realise we have it easy.
    I can't offer you the future - I don't know it myself.
    All I can offer you is me.
    I'm all I can offer you right now.

    Patience make her heart grow stronger.
    Reassure her she's where I want to be.
    Never was the grass ever greener.
    I'm about ready as I'll ever be.

    And one day you'll understand how much you have me.
    One day you'll realise we have it easy.
    If an expression of love is what you need to believe.
    All I can offer you is me.
    I'm all I can offer you right now.

    [Music]

    I'm all I am.
    All I am, yeah.

    One day you'll understand how much you have me.
    One day you'll realise we have it easy.
    I can't offer you the future - I don't know it myself.
    All I can offer you is me.

    One day you'll understand how much you have me.
    One day you'll realise we have it easy.
    If an expression of love is what you need to believe.
    All I can offer you is me.
    I'm all I can offer you right now.

    [Pause]

    Absence make her heart grow fonder.
    While I'm conquering the last frontier.

    I believe that a young man has fallen in love with his girlfriend and sadly it's ended but he's saying he will wait, and he doesn't know his future or anyone else's but he is offering his entire love to her and he will stand behind every disition or anything that comes there way he will be there

    I'm an anime lover and this reminds me of naruto and how he loves sakura but she keeps rejecting him for sasuke. He heals his heart and tries again to impress her, he trains hard to forfill his promise to her of bringing sasuke back after he went rogue , and to do that he had to he had to get stronger and that ment going away with jiraiya-sama to train for three years he sacrificed that time to get stronger because he loved her truely and the bond with sasuke was really important to him and he would do anything to keep that bond. After his training even after all the time of him being away, she's always on his mind constantly, everyday reminding him of his goals. Even being far away and not seeing her, his love never faded and in his mind he tells her he'll be back. When he does finally come back her heart has grown fonder towards naruto although she still loves sasuke, after awhile she realised naruto's love but never truly let's go of her love for sasuke than you for taking your time to read my thought and opinion cause even i read all the comments/thought before me . Whatever's others think this is what i think, this song has very deep meaning and really is food for the soul
