On My Way

Undefeated - 3:16
It’s late, but it’s early where you are,
And I’ve been trying to stay awake
To greet you at the start of your day.
And I know
That this year I’ve been gone
More than I’ve been home,
And you’ve been holding down the fort on your own.

Time's been slipping by, a little faster all the time.
I’d gladly wave away the parts when I’m not by your side.

Because when I’m with you, the world can wait.
You make the static fade away.
These days apart, they start to weigh
More than I can really take.
I’m on my way.

When the wind won’t let you get to sleep,
And the daylight’s creeping in,
And the house is feeling empty without me,
Just know
I’ll be home before the leaves
On our cherry blossom tree
Have turned against the year, my dear.

Time keeps slipping by a little faster all the time
The thing that keeps me going is knowing you’re there when I arrive.

Because when I’m with you, the world can wait.
You make the static fade away.
These days apart, they start to weigh
Much more than I can really take.

I know that I'm not always easy to be with,
Know I wasn't always there when you needed,
But I said that I was coming home and I meant it.
So I’m on my way.
