It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh how I've been alone
Wait 'til I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

But if your heart breaks
Don't wait, turn me away
And if your heart's strong
Hold on, I won't delay
Wait 'til I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

I feel as though
You ought to know
That I've been good
As good as I can be
And if you do
I'll trust in you
And know that you
Will wait for me

It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh how I've been alone
Wait 'til I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

I feel as though
You ought to know
That I've been good
As good as I can be
And if you do
I'll trust in you
And know that you
Will wait for me

But if your heart breaks
Don't wait, turn me away
And if your heart's strong
Hold on, I won't delay
Wait 'til I come back to your side
We'll forget the tears we've cried

It's been a long time
Now I'm coming back home
I've been away now
Oh, how I've been alone

    General CommentI lovoooooove it! i love all beatles songs so much!!! and this darn website has allowed me to wallow in the feelings that derive from their songs and it is so unhealthy bc i swear it's like my whole chesty area is swallowed up and strained and tortured by the songs. omgggg!! i just. love. the beatles! and this is a great song. i wish they could never die and live forever singing for eternity. why, why does life have to be so short that the geratest band that ever lived has halfway gone, and the other half will be gone before i'll ever get a chance to see them live or meet them or anything!! lol i'm sorry i know this isnt going into the meaning of this song (which I agree with maestro...it's pretty straightforward), but i have to rant somewhere lol. and none of my friends will hear it.
