Come Back Home (I Miss You)

So I know
Everybody's got a life to live
Everybody's got a chance to give
A gift, so precious
But I can't help it
Just let me be
Here I am
Being selfish

I want you by my side
Through the day and through the night
(I miss you)
And your smile

So won't you please just
(Come, back, home)
Come back, where you belong
And I know
That this might be wrong
And I know that
Never did
Never will
Every single thing in this
(Whole, wide, world)
But I know for certain
For sure
Known ever since before
I started this little
Play on words
For you

I'm just trying to tell you
Short and sweet
Simple and clean
Plain and simple
I miss you

I miss you
Been missin' you
(Far, too, long)
And it's hard
When you
This song
All along
I always knew
It would come to this
And believe me
I took a chance
But missed

So won't you please just
Won't you please just

[Come back home]
(Come, back, home)
I've been waiting
I'll be waiting
With open arms
[I miss you
Said I miss you]

And today's
Another one
Of those days
The days
When you feel like
You can say
What's on your mind
What you feel

(No hesitation)

I'm taking this chance
To let off my chest
What I've been trying to say
(Dying to say)
Ever since you left
I'm not happy with this

And who knew
That I
Would ever
Write like this
Matching every other word
With a different rhyme
'Cause a rhyme scheme
Is too cliche
For me

And these words are flowing
Partly 'cause
Right now
No worry

You've been too far
For too long
And I'm just
Writing you this song
So you won't forget
Where you came from
And I hope you met
Somebody new
And interesting
Maybe we
Can get along
Like nobody else
And I hope for you
The best
And nothin' less
'Cause that's
(Just the way I am)

It's kinda funny
How I keep wishin'
That you're alright
That you're okay
You stick and stay
With it
Make it through
Make a memory
Of it

But at the same time
Wishin' that you just
Hurry back home
Jump into
These open arms
I'll hold you forever
Or until you say so
Whatever the case
I'm just
Tryin' to let you know

(I miss you)

Won't you please just
Oh won't you please just

[Come back home]
(Come, back, home)
I've been waiting
I'll be waiting
With open arms

(I miss you)
Like nothin' else
(I miss you)
Like nobody else

Now it's time
To call it quits
That's a wrap
Tie this away
Final words to say
'Fore I leave
It's okay
I've been waiting
And I'll keep waiting
'Til you come home
Tellin' everyone
That you made it
(I hope you make it)

Just hurry up
[I miss you]
(Come, back, home)

Have you tried putting any of these to music? I think they'd work.


word = speaking/singing
(word) = whispering/echo
[word] = stern voice/screaming
