"Baby Come Back" as written by Peter Beckett and John Charles Ii Crowley....
Spending all my nights, all my money going out on the town
Doing anything just to get you off of my mind
But when the morning comes, I'm right back where I started again
Trying to forget you is just a waste of time

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

All day long, wearing a mask of false bravado
Trying to keep up the smile that hides a tear
But as the sun goes down, I get that empty feeling again
How I wish to God that you were here

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

Now that I put it all together
Give me the chance to make you see
Have you used up all the love in your heart
Nothing left for me, ain't there nothing left for me

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, listen, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you

I was wrong, and I just can't live

    General CommentSong meaning: A guy broke up with his girlfriend and is vainly trying to get his mind off her. He feels entirely responsible and asks for forgiveness.

    Feel free to add whatever I missed.

    General CommentThis guy is doing whatever he can to forget about her. He plays it off like a "Player" in the daytime, but when the nightime comes, he's reminded of her. He's begging her to come back. Whatever he did, he knows he fucked up, and now he will spend the rest of his life in a lonely, agonizing torture. bummer

    General CommentI work with a girl, let's call her "Jen"....... this is most favorite song in the ENTIRE world........... I also work with this other jerk, let's call him "Brian".... he keeps playing it ..... over and over....... and over .... very annoying.

    The End.

    General CommentIt's CLEAR to me that he cheated on her, and he's paying the price. "You can blame it all on me" -- he's outright admitting to it. Also, "But when the morning comes, I'm right back where I started again" tell us that he continues to do so, even when he knows he's wrong. I don't know why Jen likes this song as it exemplifies what is wrong with the world.

    General Comment>I don't know why Jen likes this song

    Because she's fascinated with it... she thinks this idiot "Brian" doesn't know.... but sometimes, when "Brian" walks in... he catches her listening to it alone..... it's really kind of creepy. It gets in the blood...... this song is pure evil....... it's one of those songs that would be playing the back ground of some slasher movie as he's axing everybody up........ only a deranged person would like this song.

    General CommentI agree with artvandelay142, this song is totally horror movie material.

    But for some reason, I still like it though....

    General CommentHorror movie image of slasher hacking someone up with this song playing is pretty funny. However, this is good song, oldie but goodie.

    General Comment"The worst line-though one really has to listen to the Gloria-Steihem-esque wail: "How I wish to God that you were here!!!""

    Actually I love that line and think it's the best one in the song.
