"Come Back" as written by and Sally Mary Seltmann....
When dark as night
I saw the light
It shone with more
Desire than
I'd seen before
The leaves begin to fall
I smell the air
And hear a voice saying
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

It's time to lie
Down on the shore
Where you once cried
For more, for more
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

It's true
It's true
I've been avoiding you
When all you gave to me
Was so pure and so complete
The sounds that lull to sleep
The flickering of the lights
The water so deep
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

It's time to lie
Down on the shore
Where you once cried
For more, for more
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

    General CommentI feel like this song is about some sort of romantic relationship:
    "It's time to lie
    Down on the shore
    Where you once cried
    For more, for more"

    Umm...I think maybe that in the couple, one person left (I'm thinking it's the girl because the singer is a girl):
    "Come back
    Come back
    I need you now
    Come back
    Come back
    I need you now"

    "It's true
    It's true <---obviously she was afraid of falling in love because she
    I've been avoiding you acknowledges the fact that the relationship was supportive
    When all you gave to me
    Was so pure and so complete
    The sounds that lull to sleep
    The flickering of the lights <----I think those 3 lines are just some random thoughts of memory
    The water so deep" that only the person who'd been in the relationship would
    understand. 'the sounds that lull to sleep' maybe being when they
    fell asleep to the sound of their breathing. 'the flickering lights'
    remembering how the lights were a little quirky in the ceiling of a room in which they spent the day. 'the water so deep' if they went to the -OH WAIT! Okay, new idea. You know the part where they say:
    'It's time to lie
    Down on the shore
    Where you once cried
    For more, for more"
    I think it's a memory of one weekend or vacation or whatever, where they went to the beach 'It's time to lie Down on the shore' 'the water so deep', had a wonderful time ;P 'Where you once cried
    For more, for more", and fell asleep to the winking stars 'the flickering lights' and the lapping of the waves 'the sounds that lull to sleep'.

    :D

    Somehow that whole relationship ended and she or he (whichever one singing "come back") wants the other to come back because they are having a hard time and need to be loved:
    "When dark as night
    I saw the light <----dark as night being tough times, light being the other person who they
    It shone with more loved. and "with more desire then I'd seen before' they want to be with
    Desire than person again
    I'd seen before
    The leaves begin to fall <---time goes by...fall..seasons
    I smell the air <---winter smells, crunching dewy leaves of autumn, spring flowers
    And hear a voice saying <---the voice being their owns thoughts
    Come back
    Come back
    I need you now <--- yeah.
    Come back
    Come back
    I need you now"



    ET VOILA! Le Fin! I have interpreted it! :D
