Oceans apart, day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
But how can we say forever

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it, baby
You've got me goin' crazy

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it, baby
You've got me goin' crazy

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

Waiting for you

    Oceans that the artist talks about can be any barrier in between two of the lovers which prevents them meeting...
    Whenever you don't get to see the one you love when you want, you started missing him or her... The more the barriers you have to clear the more you get the "missing" feeling...
    Obviously, whenver you can't meet somebody in person, the only equipment that would help you to reach him/her is the phone, but it doesn't really gives you as much as you want...
    That's why the "pain" or the feeling of "missing" doesn't really go off, even though the two lovers are connected through the phone...
    When you don't get to see him/her at those times that you really need to see, so much so you tried... You get hurt inside and get remembered of the things that you've spoken when you were together- "I love you and I'll be with you forever" is something that any lover would really say when they are together and in that mood... So... when you are alone and need your partner by your side, but when you don't get that, you get hurt and started thinking "how can we say forever, when I don't have you when I need you..." the beauty is, when the love is real, both think that one misses the other more than the later does - and that brings in more pain...
    SO FRIENDS... THIS IS WHAT I FEEL ABOUT THE 1ST VERSE OF THE SONG... DO YOU THINK HAVE I GOT IT CORRECTLY?... ONE WAY TO JUDGE IS YOU READ THE NEXT TWO VERSES YOURSELF KEEPING WHAT I HAVE TOLD ABOVE IN MIND, THEN SEE WHETHER YOU REALLY RELATE IT TO WHAT I HAVE TOLD...

    It reminds me of my first love who went into the navy. I have been waiting for him to come back. He has many times but has always left to go back. I guess it was never meant to be :o(
