Heart Strings

TV dinner manufacturers
would like you to believe
that they are the best thing
next to your home cookin'
back when long distance
was a luxury of sorts
the phone company told us
it was the next best thing
to being there
Didn't believe it then
Don't believe it now
Absence, contrary to those
highly stated commercials
does not make the heart
grow fonder
Long distance relationships
make great drama
but not happy hearts
It's nice to wake up
and see you there
It's nice to hear
you beside me
It's nice
Holding you close
Having you near
These are the things
that love is about
That other stuff?
The best thing about
going away
is the coming back
You can come and go
in my life
But I prefer it
when you stay
