I gotta leave again, I don't wanna go
Things can be so lonely on the road
Could be a presidential sleep
But nothing's ever like your bed at home
Especially when you're away from the one you love
It gets tough

Even though it hurts when I'm off at work
Looking at her picture soothes my pain
And for a moment I find myself right back at home again
I remember through the ups and the downs of my day
I can say

My baby will be
Sitting, waiting, longing, holding on for me
(Sitting, waiting, longing)
While the time goes
(Tick tock, tick tock)

My baby will be
Sitting, waiting, longing, holding on for me
(Sitting, waiting, longing)
While the time goes
(Tick tock, tick tock)

She's gotta leave again, she don't wanna go
Hates to be away from me so long
She calls me everyday but
She can't kiss her baby on the phone
When we're hanging up
The tears start rolling down but somehow

Even though she cries, she can find her smile
'Cos she knows with me her heart is safe
Funny how time away, makes a loving heart grow fond again
She remembers through the ups and the downs of her day
She can say, she can say

Oh, that I'll be
Sitting, waiting, longing, holding on for her
(Sitting, waiting, longing)
While the time goes
(Tick tock, tick tock)

Her baby will be
Sitting, waiting, longing, holding on for her
(Sitting, waiting, longing)
While the time goes
(Tick tock, tick tock)

Oh, we remember through the ups and the downs of our days
We can say, we can say

Oh, that we'll be
Sitting, waiting, longing, holding on for love
(Sitting, waiting, longing)
While the time goes
(Tick tock, tick tock)

Oh, we will be
Sitting, waiting, longing, holding on for love
(Sitting, waiting, longing)
While the time goes
(Tick tock, tick tock)

Sitting, waiting, longing
(Waiting, longing, holding)
Oh, I'll be
Sitting, waiting, longing
(Sitting, waiting, longing)

I will be
Sitting, waiting and longing
'Til she comes home to me
