Babe I'm leavin'
I must be on my way
The time is drawing near
My train is going
I see it in your eyes
The love, the need, your tears
But I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
So please believe me
My heart is in your hands
And I'll be missing you

'Cause you know it's you babe
Whenever I get weary
And I've had enough
Feel like giving up
You know it's you babe
Givin' me the courage
And the strength I need
Please believe that it's true
Babe, I love you

You know it's you babe
Whenever I get weary
And I've had enough
Feel like giving up
You know it's you babe
Givin' me the courage
And the strength I need
Please believe that it's true
Babe, I love you

Babe, I'm leavin'
I'll say it once again
And somehow try to smile
I know the feeling we're tryin' to forget
If only for a while
'Cause I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
Please believe me
My heart is in your hands
'Cause I'll be missing you
Babe, I love you
Babe, I love you
Ooo-oo-oo-oo, babe

    This song practically is an assurance, I guess..Of a love for his better half, girlfriend, etc. Its the love that keeps him strong despite the distance and longingness to be with her. The girl is lucky to have a guy like this. Despite the distance between them, he still assures her that she is the only love of his life.

    Absolutely beautiful song, Dennis DeYoung write it for his wife who he'd been with practically since the band started, Suzanne, about how he misses her on the road.

    Being separated from my wife, missy; &,
    our baby, cyder-lyn grace, for so very
    long; because, i'm not able to earn
    enough money to take care of my
    family, where they are staying; &, the
    heart-ache that we feel; because we
    can't be together, except a couple of
    months, each year
