(Ryan does quite a bit of harmony and soft repeating of certain lines in the background)

Tonight I sit awake and wonder
I sit awake, I cannot fake the slumber

*guitar*

Called you late last night
just to see if you'd answer
to know you're alright
I'm trying to show what I feel inside
love I no longer can hide

So tonight I sit awake and I try
to count the minutes til the next time that you and I are together
I promise you that I will try
I will try...
Ooohhh...

I cannot read your mind
I'm asking you questions, and I wait for replies
If you would say the words I'm wanting you to say
these words will draw us nearer, I'm seeing things clearer
and right now that try as I may to hold you tight
it's gonna be another lonely night

Tonight...
I sit awake and I try...
to count the minutes til the next time that you and I are together
I promise you that I will try
I will try to be the one that you need
if you just reach out for me
I will always be there
I swear... *hits a really high note*

Tonight...
I sit awake and I try...
to count the minutes til the next time that you and I are together
I promise you that, I promise you that, I promise... you that
I promise you that I will try
I will try...
Ooohhh...
Eeehhh

Baaa Baaabe

Ooohhh...

*ends softly*
