Right Here Waiting Lyrics

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for...

    It’s about a guy and the love of his life he constantly dreams about. She’s faraway but the pain is there in his heart. He’s longing for her. He loves her but doesn’t know if she feels the same anymore. Yet he’s willing to wait as long as it takes. That’s the meaning of this song and that’s true love.

    My interpretation. Is he met a Woman . Online , the fell deeply in love . However they live other side of the world from each other.
    They yearn for each other daily .
    Yet both have commitments where
    They live . It’s easier for the Woman
    To move where he lives .
    So he is waiting for her ..
