He has never felt so over-thrown
When he was living in a house alone
But now she's living with him all the time
It's so much harder when they say goodbye
Everyday seems compromised
As another busy day comes rolling by

She hides little messages around the bedroom
And puts her clothes on in the dark
And now he wakes up to the sound of her keys
Jingle in the front door as she leaves
There's an empty space beside him
And another busy day starts rolling by

So he ties a ribbon on a box, signs his name across the top
Turns some music on and puts some flowers in a pot
Leaves a message on her phone
Saying "baby when you're home,
I've got a little plan to spend some time on our own.
You know, I am just trying to say
That you are worth the waiting everyday"

She says she really wants to be a nurse someday
Reads a thousand books and puts them all away
She starts to write a essay on the things she's learned
Before she has to stop again and run to work
Little frustrations grow inside
As another busy day goes rolling by

So he ties a ribbon on a box, signs his name across the top
Turns some music on and puts some flowers in a pot
Leaves a message on her phone
Saying "baby when you're home,
I've got a little plan to spend some time on our own.
You know, I am just trying to say
That you are worth the waiting everyday"

So he ties a ribbon on a box, signs his name across the top
Turns some music on and puts some flowers in a pot
Leaves a message on her phone
Saying "baby when you're home,
I've got a little plan to spend some time on our own.
Cause you, you are worth the waiting everyday! "

I know the weight of the world is sitting right upon your shoulders
I can't wait until we're home and all of this is over
We'll be looking back on all the years we're going through
Give a smile, raise a glass, say the things we'll never do again
And I am just trying to say
That you are worth the waiting everyday"
