Baby I'm going out of town to handle some business
For a few days
But don't you worry
'cause I'll call you
Like it's not
Long distance
'cause I hate being away
I hate being away from you
I gotta go
Even though I don't want to
I'd rather stay
Than to be away from you

Since absence
Has been known to
Make the heart grow fonder
Then you know
That I miss you
And this song
Is just a reminder
I hate being away

I hate being away from you
I've gotta go even though I don't want to
I'd rather stay
Than be away from you
I can't wait to see your smiling face
And cuddle up in front of the fireplace
I'd rather stay
Than be away from you

Sometimes I find myself
Reaching for you
When talking on the phone
Is all we can do
But it won't be long until I'm back to you
I'm counting the seconds
The minutes
The hours
The days
Until we're face to face
'cause I hate being away

I hate being away from you
I gotta go even though I don't want to
I'd rather stay than to be away from you
I can't wait to see your smiling face
And cuddle up in front of the fireplace
I'd rather stay than be away from you

I hate being away from you
I gotta go even though I don't want to
I'd rather stay than to be away from you
I can't wait to see your smiling face
And cuddle up in front of the fireplace
I'd rather stay than be away from you
