I'm taking a trip, I'm not sure where

I wish I wished that you'd be there

I couldn't tell you how long I'll be

I know I know you'll wait for me

As long as our love will shine bright

I know I can count on you to hold me tight

You've always been my best best friend

So promise you'll remember me 'til the end.

As long as children sing and dream

No matter how far away I seem

You know I know you know

That I'll be there.

When I told you this, you didn't speak

I could tell that I'd made you weak

"Just say one word," I beg and plead

"I'm not moving away, it's you I need

To stay here, remember, to never forget

Who I am, what I've done, how we first met."

You shook your head, gave me a small smile

"Just promise you'll visit ev'ry once in a while."

As long as children sing and dream

No matter how far away I seem

You know I know you know

That I'll be there.

Why does this seem so hard?

You know I'm not going far.

Listen to me, to the words I say

It's not forever, I'm not going away.

As long as children sing and dream

No matter how far away I seem

You know I know you know

That I'll be there.
