Lyrics

  • Can it be I stayed away too long
  • Did I leave your mind
  • When I was gone
  • It’s not my thing
  • Tryin’ to get back
  • But this time let me tell where I’m at
  • You don’t have to worry
  • ’Cause I’m comin’ back
  • To where I should have always stayed
  • And now I’ve learned the meaning
  • To your story
  • And it’s enough love for me to stay
  • Can it be I stayed away too long
  • Did I leave your mind
  • When I was gone
  • Well, it’s not my thing
  • Tryin’ to get back
  • But this time let me tell where I’m at
  • I wanna, wanna be where you are, o-oh
  • Anywhere you are, o-oh
  • I wanna, wanna be where you are, o-oh
  • Anywhere you are, o-oh
  • Please don’t close the door
  • To our future
  • There’s so many things
  • We haven’t tried
  • I will love you better
  • Than I used to
  • And give you all the love
  • I have inside
  • I wanna, wanna be where you are, o-oh
  • Any, any, any, anywhere you are, o-oh
  • I wanna, wanna be where you are, o-oh
  • I gotta, gotta be where you are, o-oh
  • I wanna be, I wanna be, oh
  • Yeah, yeah, baby now
  • I wanna be, I wanna be, oh
  • I wanna be, I wanna be, oh
