Promise You'll Come Back

lyrics

She stole so much from me that day
Broke her promise and ran away
Says she's got too many stories left to write
Groove worn in the bed she used to lay in
Trying so hard to stop my eyes from raining down
Never thought I'd have to start all over

Now I’m outside screaming but nothing's coming out
Can't remember what we were fighting about
Just promise that you’ll still come back to me

Resigned to the fact she was bound to wander
A tryst with a fella in the town over yonder
What was it he could give you that I couldn't give?
Ready to roll up my sleeves and put the work in
So hard to know where I'm supposed to begin
Every episode seems to sting me in a new kind of way, hey hey

In my arms at night and when I wake up you're gone
Making me crazy where did I go wrong?
Just promise you’ll still come back to me

I sit and pray that a woman can change her ways
But in the back of my mind I know it's all in vain
Won’t you please, come back to me

I know I gotta stop all this banging my head against the same wall every night
And it would be so simple if it wasn’t so hard, to stop myself from loving you

So I’m outside screaming but nothing's coming out
Can't remember what we were fighting about
Just promise that you’ll still come back to me

In my arms at night and when I wake up you're gone
Making me crazy where did I go wrong?
Won’t you please come back to me

When you push me away it makes me want you more
I'm not afraid of getting bruised and torn
Just promise that you’ll still come back to me

I sit and pray that a woman can change her ways
But in the back of my mind I know it's all in vain
Just promise that you'll still come back to me
