You are not alone tonight
Imagine me there, by your side
It's so hard to be here
So far away from you
I'm counting the days
'Till I'm finally done
I'm counting them down
Yea one by one
It feels like forever
'Til I return to you

But it helps me
On those lonely nights
It's that one thing
That keeps me alive
Knowing that you

Wait for me
Ever so patiently

No one else knows the feeling inside
We hang up the phone
Without saying goodnight
'Cause it's the sound of your voice
That brings me home

It's never been easy to say
But it's easier when
I've gone away
Knowing that you...

Wait for me
Ever so patiently

Yea, you're everything
I've ever dreamed of having
And it's everything
I need from you
Just knowing that you
Wait for me

What I'd give, what I'd do
Knowing I'm not there for you
Makes it so hard to leave
What I'd give, what I'd do
Anything to get me home to you
This time I'll stay

And you wait for me
Ever so patiently
Yeah, you're everything
I've ever dreamed of having
And it's everything
I need from you
Just knowing that you
Wait for me

    Okay, cause this is a band, maybe he was on tour, and missing his girlfriend/wife and shes waiting. Or maybe he's been deployed and she knows he might not come back and she's waiting for that date when he comes back to her.
