where could he be
out in the world
so well prepared
so suave
so altogether cool
so everything i'm not

he wants his life and his world
it all together
it all running smooth
i just want him
the rest fades away
my life needs no maintenance
it'll do fine without me
just give me him

so i sit at home
while he's out in the world
i start at every sound
every turn of every key in every lock
every footstep sets my heart to racing
my body remembers
my heart yearns
i wonder

his day is an adventure
a roller coaster ride
he never knows where he'll be
who'll he see
like a leaf in the wind he flies from sky to sky

mine is a wait at the dentists office
a mindless fearful ulcer
chipping at my stomach
cause all i want is what i can never have
never peacefully
when he's near
it's a compromise
a tether
a leash for his spirit

and how can i do that
why must i feel this way
why must i worry
why must i wonder
why must i start at every sound
every turn of every key in every lock

oops gotta go
he's back
do i hear singing?
where'd that choir come from?
