"Come Back When You Can" as written by and Brian Leseny Fennell....
I've been led on
To think that we've been
Trying for too long
Every time we drift
Were forcing what is wrong
At last that voice is gone
Please take your time
But you've got to know that
I am taking sight
Oh, you look good
With your patient face and wandering eye
Don't hold this war inside

Whoa
Come back when you can
Whoa
Let go, you'll understand
You've done nothing at all, to make me love you less
Whoa
So come back when you can
You left your home
You're so far from
Everything you know
Your big dream is
Crashing down and out your door
Wake up and dream once more

Whoa
Come back when you can
Whoa
Let go, you'll understand
You've done nothing at all to make me love you less
Whoa
So come back when you can
Whoa
Come back, I'll help you stand
Whoa
Let go and hold my hand
If all you wanted was me, I'd give you nothing less
Whoa
So come back when you can

    General CommentMy interpertation of this song is that, the singer is telling his loved one that it's okay to let go. Because, she is giving up on something such as her dreams, or she needs to do something first before they can be together. Something personal that she needs to acomplish first.

    "you left your home
    you're so far from everything you know
    your big dream is crashing down and out your door
    wake up and dream once more" -She left everything that meant something to her. And she needs to revisit it. "WAKE UP AND DREAM ONCE MORE" He's telling her, I want you to do what you need to do.

    "come back when you can
    let go you'll understand
    you've done nothing at all
    to make me love you less"

    - He's saying, I love you so much, That i'll do anything for you. Even let go. And by you leaving, I understand and will love you no less. So do what makes you happy, and Come Back When You Can.

    Beautiful Song:)

    My InterpretationI directly relate this song to a situation of mine. Basically I believe that the person singing this song has strong feelings for someone who is harming themselves, physically or mentally. But the person singing is willing to do anything for this person, including letting them go... with the hopes that they will come back soon. Maybe the singer thinks that the person who left is embarrassed and they want them to know not to be, and that they are there for them whenever.

    This first part makes me think it's about a relationship that didn't work out or isn't working out. Both sides are stubborn and won't admit to still having feelings for the other person but the singer is finally deciding to give in, hence "at last that voice is gone".
    He's telling the girl to let go of all of the bad things and the hurt and come back when she can. And he's finally being honest and saying she's done nothing to make him love her less and he still has feelings for her.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about when you really love someone and they break your heart.You know they want you back and still love you.So you do everything you can to be with them again.
