about

Come Back is one of the songs (there are others; you have been warned!) that sprang from some of the conflicting emotions that can rise to the surface when looking back at a fateful decision to leave the place where you were born. It seems like there's always a part of you that feels like you might still belong there, yet you've gone and made a home and a new life in another place entirely. With this, comes that vague, yet persistent feeling of rootlessness that you carry with you.

lyrics

I'd come back if only you'd let me in
I'd be there bearing roses
I'd endeavour to crawl upon hand and knee
While you all stare down your noses

I have changed like you
Rearranged and new
I'll show you proof
When I come back to you

I'd come back if only you'd change some things
I'd be there without warning
Bring back pennies, steam trains and Slade Alive!
I'd be there there by the morning

You have changed like me
Rearranged, I see
I'll tell the truth
When I come back to you

Places to go, love to take or to leave
Big consequences we never conceived
Time on the clock ticking over
So far away is much closer
Than we might believe

I'd come back if only you'd talk to me
I would answer your questions
Why did I go? How could I let you down?
Funny that you should mention...

We have changed, it's true
Edges frayed and unglued
We'll know the truth
When I come back to you
