"When You Come Back To Me" as written by Matthew James Aitken, Peter Alan Waterman and Michael Stock....
So many people
Smile on their faces
Armful of presents
Going to places
There's a chill in the air
As I walk through the night
How I wish I could walk
Through the windows of time

Would I see happiness there
See your face everywhere
But the lights all go down
Over London town
There's a glow in my heart
Even though we're apart
‘Cause I know, yes, I know
It's just a matter of time

I'm missing your love
Until you come back to me
I'm counting the hours
Until you return
There's a flame in my heart
And when you come back to me
Oh, how the fire will burn

I sit by the fire
And try to remember
It won't be long ‘til
We're back together
But we're oceans apart
And nothing that I can do
Will speed the passing of time
Or bring me closer to you

And I keep thinking of you
And it keeps pulling me through
Like the songs that you sing
When you're lonely
But there's a glow in my heart
Even though we're apart
‘Cause I know, yes, I know
It's just a matter of time

I'm missing your love
Until you come back to me
I'm counting the hours
Until you return
There's a flame in my heart
And when you come back to me
Oh, how the fire will burn

There's a flame in my heart
And when you come back to me
Oh, how the fire will burn

And I keep thinking of you
And it keeps pulling me through
Like the songs that you sing
When you're lonely
But there's a glow in my heart
Even though we're apart
‘Cause I know, yes, I know
It's just a matter of time

I'm missing your love
Until you come back to me
I'm counting the hours
Until you return
There's a flame in my heart
And when you come back to me
Oh, how the fire will burn

I'm missing your love
Until you come back to me
I'm counting the hours
Until you return
There's a flame in my heart
And when you come back to me
Oh, how the fire will burn

I'm missing your love
Until you come back to me
I'm counting the hours
Until you return
There's a flame in my heart
And when you come back to me
Oh, how the fire will burn

    My InterpretationThis song is ambiguous in an interesting way.

    Maybe the lovers are geographically separated because one has gone away on holiday or business - in which case "oceans apart" might be literal.

    Or maybe they are just on a break from each other, in which case the "oceans apart" is a metaphor for the emotional separation. He wants to get back together, but there's an overriding sense of needing to let the break run its course. I've felt this myself while torn apart from a special friend.
