Lyrics

Johnny’s got a new job out in Washington State

He’s got a new house, repairs he’s gotta make

And from his window you can see the Puget Sound

But it don’t matter ‘cause his new love’s not around

And he thinks…

God I hate to wish my days away

But it don’t mean nothing ‘til I have her here to stay

And I know that may sound crazy

I guess that’s what she makes me

Hey….ah

 

Johnny’s got a ring that he’s been hiding away

Takes it out to look at nearly every single day

Practices the words he knows that she will love to hear

He’s got it down if only he could get her here

‘Cause he’s got

Hopes and dreams and promises to share

Open arms to hold her with and love enough to spare 

 

But it’s gonna take faith

And it’s gonna take time

And it’s gonna take strength

If you don’t know where to find it

Look into my eyes, boy

You mean everything to me

Look into my heart and you’ll see

Hey….ah

 

And across the country, six or seven states away

There’s a woman waiting who loves Johnny the same way

And she’s got her boxes packed her heart’s out on a limb

In another week or two she’ll be coming home to him

And she was…

So afraid to love before he came

Now she’s gonna wear that ring

She’s gonna share his name

 

And it’s gonna take faith

And it’s gonna take time

And it’s gonna take strength

If you don’t know where to find it

Look into my eyes, boy

You mean everything to me

Look into my heart and you’ll see

Hey….ah

 

Yes it’s gonna take faith

And it’s gonna take time, time, time

And it’s gonna take strength

If you don’t know where to find it

Look into my eyes, boy

You mean everything to me

Look into my heart and you’ll see

Hey….ah
