"Back To You" as written by and John Mayer....
Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I tried to forget you
I tried to stay away
But its too late

Over you
I'm never over
Over you
Something about you
Its just the way you move
The way you move me

I'm so good at forgetting
And I quit ever game I play
But forgive me, love
I cant turn and walk away

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I walk with your shadow
I'm sleeping in my bed
With your silhouette

Should have smiled in that picture
If its the last that Ill see of you
Its the least that you
Could not do

Leave the light on
I'll never give up on you
Leave the light on
For me too

Back to me
I know that it comes
Back to me
Doesn't it scare you
Your will is not as strong
As it used to be

    General Comment"Over you, I'm never over, over you"- What a true line. There is always that one girl that you can't have, but can't seem to forget.

    General Commentmy ex boyfriend and i broke up because his father didnt want him to see me anymore, and i miss him every day and this song reminds me of him because i've been asked out twice since we had to break up, and i still love him more than anything. my friend put it on a cd she made me and we listened to it in her car and just cried.

    General CommentI love this song... I def. am going through it. I love the part

    "should have smiled in that picture
    if it's the last that I'll see of you
    it's the least that you could not do"

    After a breakup, memories and photos are all you have left... so to look at a photo where the person is not smiling.. it's just kind of like Wow. This all I have left and they didn't even smile! Go figure, I'm left with a photo like this.

    General CommentLike most every other john mayer song i can really relate to this song very well. such a great song. If you've ever not been able to just give up on an ex g/f you can relate to this song. i love the last 2 verses. so touching and so true, just never giving up hope that maybe one day she'll realize how much he cares for her

    General Commentthis song is my favorite on the cd... it really describes my every emotion towards one of my closest friends... we've tried to make something of "us" at least 3 times, but only half-heartedly before... the other night he was over, and i realized just how much i need him in my life... but we've both got such different things going on... we've never been able to work it out. but we've talked, and decided we just needed to wait a while before trying again. it makes me wonder, could he be the one for me?... could i have found him so soon?... when we don't talk for a long time, i feel like there's a piece of me missing. then we strike up a conversation one day, and it's like we were never apart. it's amazing how a song really speaks to you. and you gotta know that there's something there, or something wrong, when you understand such words...

    General CommentBack to you is an anthem, or so it seems, for those of us who are completely in love with our best friends. You just can't seem to get away from them...and you really don't want to. You just want them to love you back.
