in a notepad, in my living room
there are words there that you wrote not long ago
and if you leave me
and we don't exchange eachothers things
i will keep them
and pretend they were about me

in the closet there are your clothes hanging there
in the cupboards the food is how you left it
in the freezer the frozen pizza's fine alone with me
and so we wait for you to come home

in a factory, in a small midwestern town
there are women manufactered by the hour
and they are sexy,
and they know more about comics books than me,
and when you're gone i worry that they've found you

if you don't come back to me this time
if you don't come back to me now, me now
if you don't come back to me this time
if you don't come back to me

well, there are over 6 billion people on the planet earth
and i am one and you are another
and every second that we spend together
brings us closer to where we'll end up

in a toy aisle of some department store
i will wait there expecting you to show
and if you don't come
i will start a conversation with myself
and even when you're gone you are well spoken

if you don't come back to me this time
if you don't come back to me now
if you don't come back to me this time
if you don't come back to me now, me now
