Come Back To Me

Here's a song about a young man who doesn't have a clue (possibly drawn from an early version of myself). So excited to have Bonnie Bramlett singing harmony with me on this! Her voice, so distinctive, has been one of the defining voices of rock and soul music. Joining her is another, less well-known but equally wonderful Julieann Banks. Let's dance!


Come back to me
Darlin’ can’t you see
On my own, I’m in jeopardy
I guess living alone’s just not for me
I’m a better man
When you hold my hand
Don’t make me face the world all alone
Please, please baby, won’t you come back home
It was a bad situation
Fueled by inebriation
I stayed out too late with someone else’s date
And now you’re nowhere to be found
I didn’t think things through;
What my life would be like without you
I should have done the math, ran out of cash too fast
And now I can’t find a ride home
Now I’m not asking you to stand by me forever
Just help me stand until I get myself together
What can I do or say
To get you back here today?
I’m sorry you got burned, consider my lesson learned
And now we’ll start doing things your way
