"Call Me on Your Way Back Home" as written by and Ryan Adams....
Oh baby why do I miss you like I do
Oh I miss my sweet
And the birds all singing blue
And white
And white

Call me on your way back home, dear
Cause I miss you
Honey I ain't nothing new

Oh baby why did I treat you like I did
Honey I was just a kid
Bubblegum on my shoe
But you love me and I love you

Call me on your way back home, dear
Cause I miss you

And I just wanna die without you
Oh I just wanna die without you
Yeah I just wanna die without you
Without you Honey I ain't nothing new

    General CommentBeautiful song. I agree with ajdaho.

    This part always reminds me of my 'first love' and I think it can remind alot of people of their first love:

    'Oh baby why
    Did I treat you like I did
    Honey, I was just a kid
    Bubblegum on my shoe
    But you loved me
    And I loved you.'

    It's easy to look back on memories and blame yourself, especially in this sort of subject. I used to think that if my 'first love' and I would of been older and more mature it would of worked, but it actually wouldn't have, but it's easy to look back and say things could of been different. And it can make you feel like total shit, and I can totally understand that.

    A very, very beautiful song and by far my favourite Ryan Adam's song.

    General CommentI think this is the most genuine and heartfelt of any of Ryan Adams' songs. It's so heartbreaking.

    General CommentAmazing song. It's funny because I have been listening to this song for so long and, honestly, it takes on different personal meanings depending on where I am in life. Of course, there is the pit of dispair, she left me/it didn't work out and now all I want is one more minute with her feeling. But, examined another way, this song also makes me think of those first few dates with someone new. They leave your place and you are so excited about everything and you can't wait to see them again and you stay awake hoping they might call to say goodnight. Anyway, I don't think that is what Ryan had in mind but I guess that is just my way to put a positive spin on the lyrics so that the song is not so depressing.

    General CommentThis is exactly what it feels like when you're still in love with someone you fell out of love with. I know that doesn't make any sense, but that's also exactly why this song is so brilliant.

    I know the sound of her voice is all it takes.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of borderline suicidal chain smoking English lit majors, the smell of last night on wrinkled shirts and crawling up into a little ball and feeling sorry for myself. No really, it's a good thing.
