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... sometimes

Ooh... yeah

Well I've been haunted in my sleep, you've been starring in my dreams
Lord, I miss you, child
I've been waiting in the hall, been waiting on your call
Yeah, the phone rings, it's just some friends of mine, they're saying

"Hey, what's the matter, man? We're going to come around at 12
With some Puerto Rican girls that's just dying to meet you
We're going to bring a case of wine

Hey, let's go mess and fool around, you know, like we used to"

I say...

Baby, why you wait so long?
Won't you come home, come home

I've been walking in 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 sing to myself
Sometimes I sing...

...I miss you, child

I guess I'm lying to myself, it's just you and no one else
Lord, I want to kiss you, child
You've just been blotting out my mind, fooling on my time
Lord, I want to kiss you, baby, yeah

Lord, I miss you, child
