"Wait For Me"

So, I was listening to music on Pandora tonight, and a certain song came on and stopped me dead in my tracks.  It seems like it exactly portrays the situation that I'm in right now with my boyfriend being gone at Basic, and the situation I know many of you are in with boyfriends/fiances/husbands gone in the army.  It's by Theory of a Deadman, and it's called "Wait for Me."  It sounds like it more comes from the guy that's gone's perspective, but it was chilling how much it reminded me of my situation at the moment, and how perfectly it describes a military relationship, especially when one is at Basic Training or deployment.  Anyway, just thought I'd share...I've been listening to it nonstop since I heard it.  It's a really beautiful song too.  I had never heard it before tonight, but I looked it up on youtube, and a lot of people have actually made military homecoming videos to the song.  Pretty cool!  Here are the lyrics if you're interested :)

"Wait for Me" - Theory of a Deadman

You are not alone tonight

Imagine me there by your side

It's so hard to be here so far away from you

I'm counting the days till 

I'm finally done

I'm counting them down, yeah, one by one

It feels like forever till I return to you

But it helps me on those lonely nights

It's that one thing that keeps me alive



Knowing that you wait for me

Ever so patiently



No one else knows the feeling inside

We hang up the phone without saying goodnight

Because it's the sound of your voice that brings me home

It's never been easy to say

But it's easier when I've gone away



Knowing that you wait for me

Ever so patiently

Yeah, you're everything I've ever dreamed of having and

It's everything I need from you just knowing that you wait for me



What I'd give

What I'd do

Knowing I'm not there for you

Makes it so hard to leave

What I'd give

What I'd do

Anything to get me home to you

And this time I'll stay



And you wait for me

Ever so patiently

Yeah, you're everything I've ever dreamed of having and 

It's everything I need from you just knowing that you wait for me
