I've been holding out so long, I've been sleeping all alone, Lord, I miss you I've been hanging on the phone, I've been sleeping all alone, I want to kiss you
I've been haunted in my sleep, You've been the star in all my dreams, Lord, I miss you, child
I've been waiting in the hall, Been waiting on your call when the phone rings, It's just some friends of mine that say: "Hey, what's the matter, man? We're gonna come around at 12:00 with some Puerto Rican girls that are just dying to meet you. We're gonna bring a case of wine—Hey, let's go mess and fool around, you know like we used to!"
Ooooh, everybody waits so long Ooooh, beby why you wait so long Won't you come on, come home!
I've been walking Central Park, singing after dark People think I'm crazy Stumbling on my feet, shuffling through the street Asking people, "What's the matter with you, boy?" Sometimes I want to say to myself, sometimes I say .... Hooooohooooo Hooooohooooo Hooooohooooo
I guess I'm lying to myself it's you and no one else Lord, I won't miss you, child You've just been blotting out my mind-fooling on my time No, I won't miss you, baby Lord, I miss your touch ....
