Ho yeah

I'm coming home
I've been away for too long
I'm leaving it up to you to understand

You may wonder why
When it was me who said the last goodbye
But can I change my mind one more time?

It's high time I can't wait any longer
It's my time to find out who I belong to
It's breaking my heart, waiting for another day

But when the time comes you won't see me around
I've been patient, stand in my ground
Got to see you and hold you hear what you have to say, oh

Do you wake up in the morning wanting me
The way I always wanted you?
And in the same breath you keep holding me
Does it ever occur to you?

I've been without love too long to stop now
Oh I've been away too long
Oh I've been away too long, oh

If you've ever cried
Then you know the pain you felt inside
Just like me you pay, it's all untrue

But time along will tell
If you have learned life's lessons well
And maybe then you know what I should do, yeah oh

Been away I've been away I've been away too long
Oh I've been away too long
Well I've been away too long, too long
Oh much too long, much too long

Hensley, Ken
