"When You Come Back To Me Again" as written by and Garth Brooks Jenny Yates....
There's a ship out on the ocean at the mercy of the sea
It's been tossed about, lost and broken wandering aimlessly
And God somehow you know that ship is me
'Cause there's a light house, in a harbor shining faithfully,
Pouring its life out across the water, for this sinking soul in the sea
That someone out there still believes in me

On a prayer, in a song, I hear your voice, and it keeps me hanging on
Oh, raining down, against the wind, I'm reaching out,
'Til we reach the circle's end, when you come back to me again

There's a moment, that we all come to, in our own time, in our space
For all that we've done, we can undo if our heart's in the right place

On a prayer, in a song, I hear your voice, and it keeps me hanging on
Oh, raining down, against the wind, I'm reaching out,
'Til we reach the circle's end, when you come back to me again
And again I see my yesterdays in front of me, unfolding like a mystery,
Your changing all that is and used to be

On a prayer, in a song, I hear your voice, and it keeps me hanging on
Oh, raining down, against the wind, I'm reaching out,
'Til we reach the circle's end, when you come back to me again

When you come back to me again

    General CommentThis song was writen specificaly for the movie "Frequency". Great movie fyi, but the song relating to the movie is about a son reuniting with his father who "died" when he was very young.

    Outside the movie this song is about any two people who are close (even a person and god) coming together through the storm of life.

    General CommentI love this song, i have always said the beinning reminds me of my nana.

    Basically it is about a person(I'll say man, for convinience) who is lost in life and basically being trown around, broken by circumstances. However there is a person who is there for him(a lighthouse) that guides him through the tough times.

    Whether passed on or just absent from his life, the man is still connected to the individual who guides them. He is still reaching for them, and that keeps him hanging on to life. And he is waiting for that individual to come back to him, literally, or through his own death.

    General CommentI tear up every time I listen to this song, I don't really relate to it but the emotion comes through so strong you just can't deny how much it means to someone out there.
