"Come Back To Bed" as written by and John Mayer....
Still is the life
Of your room when you're not inside
And all of your things
Tell the sweetest storyline
Your tears on these sheets
And your footsteps are down the hall
So tell me what I did
I can't find where the moment went wrong at all

You can be mad in the morning
I'll take back what I said
Just don't leave me alone here
It's cold, baby
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
C'mon back to bed

What will this fix?
You know you're not a quick forgive
And I won't sleep through this
I survive on the breath you are finished with

You can be mad in the morning
I'll take back what I said
Just don't leave me alone here
It's cold, baby
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
Come back to bed

You can be mad in the morning
Or the afternoon instead
But don't leave me
98 and 6 degrees of separation from you, baby
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
Why don't you come back to bed?

Don't hold your love over my head
Don't hold your love over my head
Don't hold your love over my head
Don't hold your love over my head
Don't hold your love over my head
Don't hold your love

    General Commentthis has to be one fo my favorite john mayer songs (although i'm sure i say that about all of them). It may not be his best lyrically, but the raw emotion he conveys, especially in this live version, is amazing. and the guitar solos in the live version blow me away everytime i hear it, damn.

    General CommentWhy the hell are there only two comments on this? This song is so romantic and realistic. I love it. It's actually staggering in its power. The lyrics are very clear, I think, and need no explanation. I love "Don't hold your love over my head.."

    General Comment"Don't hold your love over my head."

    That is the BEST quote ever. To me... I don't even know what to say. I just picture someone holding a string over a kitten's head... and making the kitten jump to get it. The girl is holding her love over his head... just like that . =)

    General CommentJohn Mayer's lyrics are so powerful and have such emotion in them,

    I think the lyrics:

    "You can be mad in the morning
    I'll take back what i said
    Just dont leave me alone here
    its cold baby come back to bed"

    express perfectly the message in this song, this is one of my favorites from John Mayer.

    General Commenti really love this song, even though its not my favorite. but does anyone under stand the quote

    General Commenti love love LOVE this song! it's so beautiful an passionate...

    as for "98.6 degrees of separation
    from you baby" ...98.6 is the normal body temperature, so he wants her to "come back to bed" and bring that 98.6 degrees back to him, and it's also kind of a play on the "6 degrees of separation" thing
