Come On Back
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I want you here in this place
I want to see your precious face
When you're here, I feel the heat
Don't care how much you tangle the sheets
Turn around right now; come on back

VERSE
You've just been gone about an hour
I thought I had enough willpower
Guess I don't 'cause I'm givin' in
I don't care; it's a beautiful sin
Turn around right now; come on back

CHORUS
I know exactly where you are
The distance you've gone so far
I can't get over this heart attack
Turn around right now; come on back

VERSE
You should eat the sandwich I made
Sunlight beginning to fade
TV's on; might as well not be
I need you here with me
So turn around right now; come on back

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
Headlights moving into view
Car slowing down; wish it was you
Let's end the call; talk later tonight
Was that you I saw in the light?
Turn around right now; come on back

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Oh, turn around right now; come on back

Description
Short Song Description:
They've spent the week -- or weekend -- together. Now she must leave and drive home. He wants her to "come on back."
Long Song Description:
They've spent the week -- or weekend -- together. Now she must leave and drive home. He wants her to "come on back." They're talking on their cell phones. He tells her that he know exactly where she is. He tells her to eat the sandwich he made for her. In the end, she sees a car outside her window and hopes it's her....
Story Behind the Song:
I was just thinking about the anguish of those who want to be -- but can't be -- together all the time. Each time they part, it must be difficult.
