I know it's been a long long year
God forbid you listen to me now
I may have laid the pressure on good but since that day
I'll never ask again

It's funny, it's come right down to this
I have to steal my time 'cause you won't give it up for free
I've been talking to the moon all night
But the stars won't say nothing to me

And though I feel it's easy for a man to grow up
Much harder for a man to grow out
You may not appear but I'm standing here my God
I'll never ask you

Where have you been?
You could have told me just
Where have you been?
'Cause if you know me you know
I won't ask why
They always told me you'd be
Right on my time
We're coming around

I know you're kind of busy right now
Been a day but I haven't heard your call
I climbed a mountain just to get a better view of you
But I'll never ask again

It's crazy that we just can't feel the time and lay down for awhile
And let life catch your eye
I've been relaxing with the wind all day
But the sky won't open up for me

And though I feel it's easy for a man to stand tall
Much harder for a man to simmer down
You may not appear but I'm standing here my God
I'll never ask you

Where have you been?
You could have told me just
Where have you been?
If you know me you know
I won't ask why
They always told me you'd be
Right on my time

If you give me just a minute of your day
I see now why you choose to stay away
Up here life seems more like living
And living mirrors love
And love just leaves me breathless
On we go

I'll never ask you
Where have you been?
You could have told me just
Where have you been?
If you know me you know
I won't ask why
They always told me you'd be
Right on my time
We're coming around

You act like you can't see me
You act like you don't know me
I just wish you would show me
That you'll be right on my time
You act like you can't see me
You act like you don't know me
I just wish you would show me
That you'll be right on my time
Right on my time
Right on my time
Right on my
