Please Come Back

I wake up each day
Trying to find meaning
Stop seeing the world in gray
Searching for a beginning
Look for a reason to stay
End all questions and asking

Refrain:
But/So I return to my old ways
Please help me as I’m drowning

Chorus 1:
And I want you back
So won’t you please come back
Oh I need you
Need you in my life…

To ignore my cries, I play
This is me pretending
That my world is fine and gay
But without you it’s crumbling
Why did you go away?
It’s hard to take this longing

Repeat Refrain and Chorus 1

When I woke up today
I hope I was not dreaming
As I saw you in my doorway
You seemed unsure but smiling

Chorus 2:
So are you back?
Are you finally back?
Oh I badly need you
Need you in my life…
