I want to be with you

I’m sitting here thinking of you
I don’t know what to do
I love it when you hold me,
In your arms is where I want to be

When I’m near you
I feel the reason the ocean is blue
When I leave you
I have to wonder what else I could do

Now, promise me
You’ll never leave
You’ll never let me fall
Did you mean what you said on the special call?

And now I pray, as I never have, for you to be here
This path we’re on, let us never veer
I don’t know what I’d do
If I lost the one and only thing I believe is true

Finally there’s nothing left to say
You have helped me day to day
Thinking, I want to be with who?
I always want to be with you.

Hey, I know exactly what you were going through. I often have these same exact thoughts when I'm apart from my boyfriend. I really related to this. Amazing work!
