"I'll Be Back" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
You know, if you break my heart I'll go
But I'll be back again
'Cause I told you once before goodbye
But I came back again

I love you so, oh
I'm the one who wants you
Yes I'm the one who wants you
Oh, ho, oh, ho, oh

You could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend

I thought that you would realize
That if I run away from you
That you would want me to
But I got a big surprise
Oh, ho, oh, ho, oh

You could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend

I want to go,
But I hate to leave you
You know I hate to leave you
Oh, ho, oh, ho

You, if you break my heart I'll go
But I'll be back again

    General CommentAh yes, the complexities of a relationship. Insecurities. Leaving so the other person will want you back. But they don't. Ouch. He obviously loves her more than she loves him - that's why he keeps "coming back".

    General CommentNot only was this a song that the beatles had a lot of trouble writing, the take 2 and take 3 versions of the song are so funny. ( on the anthology discs). Those discs in general are good!!

    General CommentShawn Colvin has done a very soulful cover version of this song. I love the Beatles version but Shawn Colvin's version kind of puts more feeling into the song.

    General CommentYou love someone so fucking much, that you keep coming back to them, no matter what they do or what happens. Its like this invisible rope that ties you to them and they're keep pulling it back...
