Long distance love affairs are trying. Maybe you can relate to these frustrations...

Long Distance Lovín
© William Cottringer, 1998

Oh babeÖ
Donít mean to complain,
but this long distance loveín,
is a killín me.

Please help me see
thereís and end in sight.
Wipe these blues from my eyes
and sooth this heartís aches & cries.

Believe me babe,
been tryín with all my might,
as I lay helpless all alone,
waiting patiently by this phone,
just to hear you sweet voice,
Ďcause I already made my choice.

Every day and every nite
itís a real fight.
This acheín in my heart,
Ďcause weíre apart,
just wonít go awayÖ
and itís gettín worse.

Itís just not fair,
those not in love,
being together,
and us so much in love,
not together.

Oh babe I need to be with you,
in your arms
holdín you
touchín you
kissín you
telling you I love you,
hearing you love me too.

I need to feel your heartbeat
with my hand,
no one else could understand.

Oh babe
you know youíre the one.
I want you,
I need you,
right now,
but how?

I canít stand it-
you not beiní here,
me not beiní there.
Every day weíre apart
claims a piece of my heart.

Oh babe
Come to me
Touch me
Kiss me
Love me
Be with me forever.

Iím sorry Iím so helpless,
but itís getín to me-
this long distance loveín.
I can only imagine
your soft touch,
missín you so much.

Oh my heart cries
to see the love in your eyes,
to kiss your sweet lips
holdín you
loveín you.

Oh babe
I need you,
so much.
I want you,
so much,
just wanting you to say
it will be okay.
