lyrics

I like to wait 'til the plane is taking off. The sky is raining and I am dozing off. The elevation and weight is dropping off and I wake up under the sun. You've been around for as long as I recall. I can't believe I did not notice you at all, and now I'm home here and too afraid to call and you don't understand at all, but I've been waiting so long to see you once more. Don't leave me standing here. My mind is wandering as I wait for my case. Although I'm trying, I cannot recall your face. You always seem to put me in my place and I don't understand at all, but I've been waiting so long to see you once more. Don't leave me standing here. Yeah, I've been waiting for so long to see you once more. Don't leave me on my own. I've got no quarter for my payphone call and I'm just hoping that you will be waiting so long to see me once more. Don't leave me standing here. Yeah, I've been waiting for so long to see you once more. Don't leave me on my own. No, don't you leave me on my own. No, don't you leave me on my own.
