Come Back and See Me

I've been thinking about you
Since you first went away
Imagining that you
Might come back for a day

Would you come back and see me
And show me your smile?
We'll play by the rules and
You'll stay for a while

There's no need for talking
If there's nothing to say
We won't have tomorrow
We just have today

We'll both pretend that
You're still alive
We'll get in the car and
We'll go for a drive

So put on some music
You can choose
I don't care what it is, we
Have nothing to lose.

Put on Nirvana
And we'll listen to Kurt
Or Amy Winehouse
Or Johnny Cash singing 'Hurt'

We can listen to Hendrix
If you put his CD on
The Dubliners
Or the Kings of Leon

Or Leonard Cohen
It's still your choice
You like his songs
But you don't like his voice

Put on some of those old songs
That you loved so well
Like Bob Dylan singing
Blind Willie McTell

Or your hero, Bob Marley
Singing Dread, Natty Dread
Elliott Smith, David Gray
Or Radiohead

Or maybe The Beatles
Would do for a start
Or Cecelia
You're breaking my heart

Put on Led Zeppelin
Jimmy Cliff or Oasis
As we drive past all the old
Familiar places

Where we fished by the bridge
And we played our football
And then we'll remember
The thrill of it all

And we'll speak to each other
Without saying a word
And like Lynyrd Skynyrd
We'll be free as a bird

And we'll sing to the music
Without missing a beat
And I know you'll be happy
In the passenger seat

And when it's all over
We can shake hands and part
We'll be glad that we listened
To the songs of your heart

I've been thinking about you
Since you first went away
Imagining that you
Might come back for a day
