[Male] The miles grow between us, increasing like the strain.
I know you're all at home and I've been out here for days,
with lack of sleep, and little pay.
But I know, hard work pays off, or so they say.
You've got to follow your heart,
you've got to chase your dreams.
But that won't pay the bills, or feed my family.
Though I'm full of hope, there's no guarantees.
(And I see what’s in your heart, never give up)
And I know, it's a long road, for you and I
I, just called to say, you're the reason I'm here today,
and I'm sorry for these days I'm so far away,
but I know you know what it takes-Know what it takes.
[Female] I've seen how far you've come and how far you've gone away.
And I know very well all the sacrifices made.
“Though it's hard when you're gone, we get by ok.”
And that's all I'd ever ask, that we're happy.
Do you remember when we first met, where we were?
I never would have guessed my life would change at your show.
And ever since then, it's been all we know.
(We can’t forget just how we met)
It's what you love, second to what is here at home.
[Female] This is all we know, we cannot fake it.
I've been there from the start, I know we'll make it.
We'll keep you in our hearts while you're away.
And it's good to know that you won't let go.
[Male] I know it's hard to see this become easier for us.
It takes so much out of us, against all odds we do this.
[Male and female] But it's good to know, that you won't let go.
(I’ll be here)
[Male] So here I go again, it gets harder every time.
(while you’re there)
[Female] I tell them where you are but they don't understand why.
(Promise to be home soon, wish me well)
[Male] It's a life that I love, and hate at the same time.
(I know it’s true we’ll see this through)
[Male and female] And I know, it's a long road for you and I.
