(duet with natalie maines)

Words & music by steve booker and sandy stewart

There's a plane, it's headed for london
Twenty-four hours more and he'll be on it
And I can't show my love, and I can't stop it
Ooh, I can't stop it

There's a house there, somebody's waiting
Somebody else's arms will wrap around him
And in that moment what will he think then...
When I can't touch him

Chorus:
Maybe my love could fly over the ocean
Maybe my heart should try to leave him alone
All that I really know is that he's goin'
Too far from texas
Too close to home

In a room just outside of houston
That's where I spend my nights trying to get through to him
He says he's comin' back in every letter...
But he might never

Chorus

Does he know how long
I've waited for this love to come
Does he know I'm holdin' on
And that won't change no matter where he's gone

Chorus

Couldn't I, couldn't I wait
Couldn't he, couldn't he stay one more day
