I used to think I was fine by myself;
That was before you came along.
I used to think I didn't need anybody else,
And then you proved me wrong.
Now I miss you, I miss you, I miss you.

I've been COUNTING EV'RY MINUTE that you've been away from me,
Now it's twenty-seven thousand seven hundred ninety-three,
And it seems like just an hour takes forever and a day,
I can't concentrate on anything since you have been away;

You said you'd go on a short little trip;
I wasn't gonna intervene.
But I never thought that I would feel anything like this;
My heart is no machine.
Now I need you, I need you, I need you.

And I'm COUNTING EV'RY MINUTE, pacing up and down the floor,
Now it's twenty-seven thousand seven hundred ninety-four;
All I ever seem to do is watch the slowly passing time,
And if you don't get here soon, right up these walls I'm gonna climb.

And all the while that you're away,
I hope you miss me, too.
I'm feelin' like I need some love,
But I'm saving it all for you.

So I'm COUNTING EV'RY MINUTE till the day that you arrive,
Now it's twenty-seven thousand seven hundred ninety-five,
When you walk in that door, you're gonna know that you've been kissed,
I will hold you just the way you like to show you what you've missed.

Yes, I'm COUNTING EV'RY MINUTE, you've really got me in a fix,
Now it's twenty-seven thousand seven hundred ninety.....(fade out)
