Hear my voice where you are!
Take a train, steal a car
Hop a freight, grab a star
Come back to me!

Catch a plane, catch a breeze
On your hand, on your knees
Swim or fly, only please
Come back to me!

On a mule, in a jet
With your hair in a net in a tow'l ringing wet
I don't care, this is where you should be
From the hills, from the shore
Ride the wind to my door

Turn highways to dust
Break the law if you must
Move the world only just come back to me!
Come back to me, come back to me!


What on Earth must I do
Scream and yell til I'm blue
Curse your soul!
When will you come back to me?

Have you gone to the moon,
Or the corner saloon and to rack and to roon?
Mademoiselle, where on Earth can you be?

In a crate! In a trunk!
On a horse! On a drunk!
In a Rolls or a van
Wrapped up in mink or Saran
Woah! Any way that you can

Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me

Bring it on back
Bring it on back
Bring it on back

Come back to me
Come on back
Come back!

    General CommentThis song is lyrically probably my favorite by Midtown (well actually I can't say that. How about the entire Save the World, Lose the Girl album is my favorite??)

    To me its another song about a long distance realtionship. The words they use are just incredible. Amongst my favorite lines are...

    "Will you still be waiting? That's something i can't ask you to be"

    "I'm waiting for and when you leave it all and you finally fall i'll be coming down with you i'm waiting for you something is wrong but i just can't put my finger on it"

    "Come on you could have any other boy to take my place and hold when you're feeling all alone"

    Basically the guy who wrote this song is in love with a girl but he can't be with here. He is extremely understanding of the fact that long distant relationships are tough but he's committed to her, but unfortunately for him the girl isn't as committed and it basically breaks his heart ("how can you say that i'm supposed to stay when you talk on to me that way oh come on now i cant see what i'm supposed to be but if you trust me it might turn out ok" and "it hurts when you talk that way")

    Its such a great song. The way all 3 sing it at the end is probably my favorite moment in the history of rock n roll. There's just so much emotion and talent. I wish I could see them perform it live...

    Its the perfect example of how guys get screwed by girls. This guy is dedicated despite realizing that the girl isn't thinking about him. He ends it saying "I know you've haven't been there for me, but soon I will be back and I'll be there for you and it will all be good because I have stayed true"

    General Commentoops! I just read through the lyrics again and I guess I missed this line...

    "When I forgot to call
    you knew it all
    it was coming down on you

    will you still be waiting?
    That's something i can't ask you to be"

    So obviously the guy isn't as innocent as I made him out to be in the above analysis. I guess I just wanted to blame it all on girls... guess you can tell how I feel about them right now :)

    General Commentthis in my opinion is the best midtown song. The part when they're like "you could have any other boy" is Godsent.

    General CommentI agree 100%. That line is so powerful... I think every guy has felt it and it just eats you up inside. That line is the climax of not only the song, but the entire CD.

    I used to think "Knew it All Along" was the best song on this CD (I can say the same thign about No Place and Such a Person... its an amazing CD :))then I read the lyrics as I listened to "Come on" and realized how powerful it is.

    This song just means a lot to me right now and I can't write enough praise for it. STW, LTG is in my favorite CD ever and like I said earlier, this song is the perfect climax for it. Its just so awesome. (Its progressed a long way too! Have you heard the orginal version?)
