  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva






It's been a long time 
Now I'm coming back home 
I've been away now 
Oh how I've been alone 
Wait till I come back to your side 
We'll forget the tears we've cried 

But if your heart breaks 
Don't wait, turn me away 
And if your heart's strong 
Hold on, I won't delay 
Wait till I come back to your side 
We'll forget the tears we've cried 

I feel as though 
You ought to know 
That I've been good 
As good as I can be 
And if you do 
I'll trust in you 
And know that you 
Will wait for me 

It's been a long time 
Now I'm coming back home 
I've been away now 
Oh how I've been alone 
Wait till I come back to your side 
We'll forget the tears we've cried 

I feel as though 
You ought to know 
That I've been good 
As good as I can be 
And if you do 
I'll trust in you 
And know that you 
Will wait for me 

It's been a long time 
Now I'm coming back home 
I've been away now 
Oh how I've been alone 
Wait till I come back to your side 
We'll forget the tears we've cried 

It's been a long time 
Now I'm coming back home 
I've been away now 
Oh, how I've been alone
