"Come Back to Me" as written by Shane L. Mcanally, Brandy Lynn Clark and Trevor Joseph Rosen....
If there's sand that you ain't wrote your name in
If you're tired of the view from the same window
If there's lips that you wanna get drunk on
Ferris wheels that you need to get stuck on, go
See everythin' you think you need to see
Then come back to me

If there's pavement you ain't put your shoes on
If there's dance floors you ain't made a move on yet
If you're feelin' too safe here beside me
And you wanna do somethin' you might regret
Try the whole world on if you feel the need
Then come back to me

I wouldn't want
You to miss a thing
I wouldn't wake
You from any dream
You ever have
So, go on, and go, unroll every map
But if you gotta leave
You gotta know
I love you enough
To let you go
If there's greener grass
Hey, I wanna hold you, but I don't wanna hold you back

If you fly like a bird in the Jetstream
Hope the sky is a Hollywood set scene blue
If you land with a tan and your shades on
Hope the promise the postcard made comes true
But if it ain't all that you dreamed it to be
Come back to me

I wouldn't want
You to miss a thing
I wouldn't wake
You from any dream
You ever have
So, go on, and go, unroll every map
But if you gotta leave
You gotta know
I love you enough
To let you go
If there's greener grass
Hey, I wanna hold you, but I don't wanna hold you back

If you find someone else who deserves you
Hope he loves you enough not to hurt you
But if he does, you know right where I'll be
Come back to me

    My InterpretationI have always thought of this song as a father whose daughter is growing up and moving out, maybe travelling on her own, and he still thinks of her as "his little girl" and wants to protect her but doesn't want to be overbearing ("I want to hold you but I don't want to hold you back"). It's a beautiful song and one of my favourites on this album.

    My InterpretationI feel like this is about being in love when it's not the right time, and being able to be the bigger person and let them go and to know that if it is meant to be, then that person will come back
