When We're Together

Well I've waited too long to say this,
Too long to show you that I love you.
Take away from this song as much as you please
But baby please don't leave me tonight,
I hate to hear that door close
And your body haunts my mind,
The tingles stay on my lips from the kisses.
Just stay in my arms and don't walk on that bus
I need you here with me
Just say you'll stay and we'll always be.

Because when we're together
I see our future.
I see me coming home with my gun and bags,
You running into my arms,
How long I've waited for you.
When we're together,
I see the stars align
To say what I can't express in the sky.
You've been on my mind
Since I first saw you
Sitting on that bench,
Your hair in a tail,
And the first time I looked into your eyes...
I never could tell you those lies.

I've been through hell,
Facing my demons
And taking them out one by one,
Waiting for you to come home,
To my arms once more.
Just the chance to make everything right,
Sorry is just not the right word.
The day you said you were going to get married,
You would have never wanted to hear those cries.
I never believed in you giving it up to him,
You were always so hard to tame.
I wouldn't have gone to the wedding,
I wouldn't be able to stand the setting.
You'd look so beautiful
But the guy in the tux is the wrong one
And it should be me,
A long time from here
Down the road a hell of a long ways.

Because when we're together
I see our future.
I see me coming home with my gun and bags,
You running into my arms,
How long I've waited for you.
When we're together,
I see the stars align
To say what I can't express in the sky.
You've been on my mind
Since I first saw you
Sitting on that bench,
Your hair in a tail,
And the first time I looked into your eyes...
I never could tell you those lies.

Same girl I wrote "Blackened Hearts", "She Walks Away", and my other relationship songs about.
