"Come Back To Me" as written by Amund Bjorklund, Espen Lind and Zachary Maloy....
You say you gotta go and find yourself
You say that you're becoming someone else
Don't recognize the face in the mirror
Looking back at you

You say you're leaving
As you look away
I know there's really nothin' left to say
Just know I'm here
Whenever you need me
I'll wait for you

So I'll let you go
I'll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you
Come back to me

Take your time I won't go anywhere
Picture you with the wind in your hair
I'll keep your things right where you left 'em
I'll be here for you

So I'll let you go
I'll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you
Come back to me

And I hope you find everything that you need
I'll be right here waiting to see
You find you
Come back to me

I can't get close if you're not there
I can't get inside if there's no soul to bare
I can't fix you I can't save you
It's something you have to do

So I'll let you go
I'll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you
Come back to me

Come back to me

So I'll let you go
I'll set you free
And when you see what you need to see
When you find you
Come back to me

And I hope you find everything that you need
I'll be right here waiting to see
You find you
Come back to me

When you find you come back to me
When you find you come back to me
When you find you come back to me.

    General CommentI have had this song on repeat for the last week. My best friend and I aren't talking, due to her smoking WAY too much pot, and this song is comforting. It's exactly how I feel about the whole thing. When you figure out what's going on in your life, then get back to me.

    Gotta love the Cookiemonster!

    General CommentIts based off an old saying. my mom says it to me all the time... "When you love someone, let them go. If they return, than they're yours to keep. If not, they were never really yours to have." simple and easy :)

    General CommentThough David didn't actually write the lyrics to this song, he interprets them in his own personal, unique way each time he sings them. He takes the message and makes the listener believe that he represents the words.

    "Come Back to Me" is obviously about a separation...though for how long, it's not certain. One person in the relationship has lost their sense of identity, so they leave, and in these lyrics, their partner is stating their desire and almost desperate need to see them again...

    General CommentI think this song means: ok, i need to find myself and i'll be gone until i find me. and david is waiting for her until she is back with her regular self. David sets her free and waits and waits. He also mentions he can't do anything unless she's there.

    Song MeaningMy mom and I have come to the conclusion that this song was written for the sole purpose of David losing his brother. The song lyrics, "When you find you, Come back to me" can be interpreted as, "I'll be here waiting when you get better" I think David desperatley hoped his brother would get better and he is remembering all the good times they had but he knows he isn't coming back.

    General CommentI think this song is all about a couple that is in love, but one of them feels like they need to explore other options. They just aren't ready for a serious relationship.

    General CommentHave been playing this song almost nonstop over the last couple of weeks. It is what I hope I can find in love someday. Someone willing to step back and recognize that sometimes you have to let the one you love work through things on their own, but support and love them through their journey.

    Question though: I can't get close if you�re not there
    I can't get inside if there's no soul there
    I can't face you (this sounds to me, and makes more sense as: I can't fix you)
    I can't save you
    It's something you have to do

    Anyone else?

    General Commentlsmalplz, I got the lyrics to this and all of the other songs from this album off of davidcookofficial.com back in November when the album first came out. Someone has pointed out to me that they have since removed the official lyrics from the site, but I got them back in November so I feel fairly certain that they are correct. DCO had that part as

    I can't get close if you're not there
    I can't get inside if there's no soul to bare
    I can't fix you
    I can't save you
    It's something you have to do

    Some may argue with these or hear it differently but this is how they first appeared on his official site. And I've seen him in concert three times and this is how I've heard the song every time.

    General CommentThis song plays every time I'm at work. Always does. And I can't help but get upset, cause I feel like this sometimes. I want to leave my boyfriend, and every time we get on that rocky conversation, he always says, "You can go look for yourself. I'll wait right here." It kills me. I love the song, just hate the current situation.
